Date:9/9/2009

HORSHAM, Pa., Sept. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Centocor Ortho Biotech Inc. announced today that the In the Zone for Crohn's program with David Garrard, quarterback for the Jacksonville Jaguars((R))(1) will continue this football season to raise awareness and provide funding for Crohn's disease research, education and support. Building on the success of last year's program, which raised $170,000 for the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA), Centocor Ortho Biotech will again make a donation of $10,000 to the CCFA for each touchdown Garrard scores, passing or rushing, during the 2009 NFL season.

More information about the In the Zone for Crohn's program can be found at www.CrohnsintheZone.com, where visitors can track Garrard's progress throughout the season. Crohn's disease, combined with a related inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) called ulcerative colitis (UC), affects more than 1.4 million Americans.

"I feel fortunate to be able to bring even greater awareness to this often misunderstood condition," said David Garrard, quarterback of the Jacksonville Jaguars. "Through my play on the field and by speaking out on my condition, I hope to continue to further educate the public and be an example to others who are living with Crohn's disease."

The program will kick off with the Jaguars' first game of the season on September 13 and will culminate at the end of the 2009 season. A contribution will be donated to the CCFA based on Garrard's total touchdown performance. The In the Zone for Crohn's program kicked off during the 2008 season. By t
