Schering-Plough Reports Financial Results for Third Quarter of 2008
Date:10/21/2008

net sales of products from Organon, the OBS human health business acquired in 2007.

Sales of REMICADE increased 32 percent to $564 million in the third quarter of 2008 benefiting from continued market growth, expanded penetration and the favorable impact of foreign exchange. REMICADE is a treatment for inflammatory diseases that Schering-Plough markets in countries outside the United States (except in Japan and certain other Asian markets) for rheumatoid arthritis, early rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, psoriatic arthritis, plaque psoriasis, Crohn's disease, pediatric Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis.

Sales of TEMODAR, a treatment for certain types of brain tumors, grew 27 percent to $273 million, with higher sales in all geographic regions.

Global sales of NASONEX, an inhaled nasal corticosteroid for allergies, rose 6 percent to $258 million versus the 2007 period, due to increased sales in international markets, partially offset by a decline in U.S. sales.

Sales of PEGINTRON for hepatitis C increased 6 percent to $235 million in the 2008 third quarter, primarily due to favorable foreign exchange.

In the women's health franchise, sales for FOLLISTIM/PUREGON, a fertility treatment, for the third quarter of 2008 were $142 million. Sales of NUVARING, a contraceptive product, in the 2008 third quarter were $118 million. These women's health products were obtained as part of the OBS acquisition.

Global sales of CLARINEX, a nonsedating antihistamine, in the third quarter of 2008 were $176 million, an increase of 3 percent as compared to the third quarter of 2007.

International sales of prescription CLARITIN were $87 million in the third quarter of 2008, a 5 percent increase compared to sales of $83 million in the third quarter of 2007 due primarily to foreign exchange.

Animal Health sales totaled $759 million in the 2008 third quarter. Included in the third quarter of 2008 were net sales of $503 m
