First and Only Cholesterol Lowering Medication Approved to Reduce A1C and

LDL-Cholesterol Achieves New Diabetes Treatment Milestone

PARSIPPANY, NJ, April 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Daiichi Sankyo announced today that Welchol(TM) (colesevelam HCl) has been added to the American College of Endocrinology (ACE) and American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists (AACE) 2008 "Road Maps to Achieve Glycemic Control in Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus." The Road Maps are updated regularly by ACE/AACE to provide physicians with the latest and most comprehensive treatment options for their patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus. Welchol is the first and only therapy approved to treat both type 2 diabetes and high LDL-cholesterol.

Welchol, which is indicated for use in combination with metformin, sulfonylureas, or insulin, was added to the combination therapy section of the Road Maps for treated patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus. This is the second major diabetes related milestone for Welchol this year. In January, Welchol was approved by the FDA for the treatment of type 2 diabetes. Welchol is also approved for lowering LDL-C in patients with primary hyperlipidemia.

The Road Maps are important tools for physicians. They are used by doctors to help achieve ACE/AACE Glycemic Control guideline recommendations in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus and are intended to assist in the treatment of these patients, including those who have not reached their A1C goals. The Road Maps are based on clinical data and clinical applications and compliment ACE/AACE guidelines, which are updated every two to three years.
