Date:6/25/2010

READING, England, June 25, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Archimedes Pharma ("Archimedes"), a leading specialty pharma company, today announced that its lead product, PecFent*, has received a Positive Opinion from the Committee for Human Medicinal Products (CHMP), of the European Medicines Agency (EMA). The CHMP is recommending PecFent, an innovative fentanyl nasal spray, be authorised for marketing in European Union countries for the treatment of breakthrough cancer pain (BTCP) - sudden, unpredictable episodes of intense pain that occur despite background pain medication.

Jeffrey H. Buchalter, President and Chief Executive Officer of Archimedes Pharma, commented: "This is a defining moment for Archimedes Pharma. Breakthrough cancer pain is a poorly served indication and affects up to 95% of all cancer patients with pain. Today's announcement by the CHMP is an important step towards bringing a new treatment option to these patients in Europe. It also marks a step change in scale for Archimedes Pharma's already successful European commercial operations and an important landmark in our development as a leading global specialty pharma company. Our clinical development programme delivered excellent results and we look forward to delivering this new option for patients in Europe as soon as we can following the grant of the Marketing Authorisation."
