istent with 2007 levels.

Brand research and development increased 20 percent or $8.5 million to $50.9 million, due primarily to milestone payments made following the Rapaflo(TM) and Trelstar(R) New Drug Application (NDA) filings. The Company recently received FDA approval for Rapaflo(TM) (silodosin), its alpha blocker for the treatment of the signs and symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia. The Company plans to launch Rapaflo(TM) in late March. Additionally, the Company recently received FDA approval for Gelnique(TM) (oxybutynin chloride) Gel 10%, its topical gel for the treatment of overactive bladder. Watson plans to launch Gelnique(TM) in late April. Also, during the fourth quarter 2008, Watson filed an NDA with FDA for its six month formulation of Trelstar(R) (triptorelin pamoate for injection suspension). The Company anticipates that FDA will take action on the Trelstar(R) application in the third quarter of 2009.
