Shire reports analysis examining emotional lability in children with ADHD taking Vyvanse
Date:11/13/2009

PHILADELPHIA November 12, 2009 Shire plc (LSE: SHP, NASDAQ: SHPGY), the global specialty biopharmaceutical company, announced findings from a post hoc analysis examining emotional lability from Phase 3 study data with Vyvanse. In this study, Vyvanse demonstrated significant improvement in Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) symptoms as measured by the ADHD Rating Scale IV (ADHD-RS IV) and Connors' Parent Rating Scale-Revised Short (CPRS-RS) in children with ADHD aged 6 to 12 years. The post hoc analysis showed that patients demonstrated an improvement in emotional lability composite CPRS-RS scores while taking Vyvanse as compared to placebo.

Childress, MD, study investigator and president of the Center for Psychiatry and Behavioral Medicine, Inc. in Las Vegas.

The primary end point of the study was the ADHD-RS IV, and secondary end points included CPRS-RS and safety. The CPRS-RS scale in its entirety contains 27 items to evaluate children's behaviors based on parents' responses. Each of the CPRS-RS 27 items is scored from zero as "Not At All True/Never, Seldom" up to three as "Very Much True/Very Often, Very Frequent." Parents completed the CPRS at 10 AM, 2 PM, and 6 PM at study start and on the day before their children made the weekly study visits. In the pos
