Date:10/17/2007

VANCOUVER, Oct. 18 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - QLT Inc. (NASDAQ:QLTI; TSX:QLT) today reported that Novartis AG announced global sales of QLT's Visudyne(R) (verteporfin) product of US$48.7 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2007. This represents a decrease of 35.1% over sales in the third quarter of 2006 and a 17.9% decline compared to the second quarter of 2007. Visudyne sales in the U.S. for the quarter were approximately US$9.4 million, representing 19.3% of total sales for the quarter. U.S. average daily Visudyne sales were 118 vials in the third quarter of 2007 compared to 122 vials in the second quarter of 2007.

The Company currently projects that total annual worldwide sales of Visudyne for 2007 will be in the range of US$210-$216 million.

"Visudyne average daily vial sales in the U.S. were relatively stable and in addition to the traditional seasonal weakness we experience in the third quarter, European sales declined due to increased trial of anti-VEGF drugs," said Bob Butchofsky, President and Chief Executive Officer of QLT Inc. "We continue to believe that Visudyne will remain an important part of treatment regimen for age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and are encouraged by the progress we are making in enrolling patients in our company sponsored clinical trial, known as 'RADICAL,' that is studying the use of Visudyne followed by an anti-VEGF agent with or without a steroid as compared to an anti-VEGF agent alone."

QLT will release its full financial results on Thursday, October, 25, 2007, at 7:30 a.m. Eastern Time (ET).
