Perforomist Inhalation Solution data to be presented today at American Thoracic Society conference
Date:5/19/2009

San Diego, Calif., May 19, 2009 Data from two presentations highlighting the use of Perforomist (formoterol fumarate) Inhalation Solution in moderate to severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) patients were featured today at the International Conference of the American Thoracic Society in San Diego. In one analysis, use of Perforomist Inhalation Solution, when added to maintenance tiotropium, resulted in improved pulmonary function, dyspnea (shortness of breath) and rescue medication use versus treatment with tiotropium alone.

"These results are significant because they validate the benefits and satisfaction when using Perforomist," said Carolyn Myers, Ph.D., President of Mylan's specialty division, which includes Dey, L.P. "We continue our dedication to further research surrounding illnesses such as COPD, and are pleased that patients can benefit from our treatments."

Studies Find Improvements in Pulmonary Function, Dyspnea, and Rescue Medication Use

A pooled analysis of two similar studies evaluated the efficacy and safety of adding Perforomist Inhalation Solution to maintenance tiotropium in patients with moderate to severe COPD versus treatment with tiotropium alone.

This data analysis assessed a combined total of 285 subjects with moderate to very severe COPD. When combining Perforomist Inhalation Solution with maintenance tiotropium in such patients, significant improvements in pulmonary function,
