Date:6/21/2011

ubmission builds upon six years of market experience with BYETTA® (exenatide) injection, the twice-daily form of exenatide that is available in more than 70 countries worldwide. The most common side effect with BYDUREON in clinical trials was mild-to-moderate nausea, which affected approximately 20 percent of patients and decreased over time in most patients. Other common side effects were vomiting, diarrhea and constipation.

In the U.S., the New Drug Application for BYDUREON (exenatide extended-release for injectable suspension) was submitted to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2009. The FDA issued a complete response letter and requested further data in late 2010. The companies plan to submit a response in the second half of 2011. BYDUREON is the proposed trade name.

BYDUREON is delivered using a biodegradable microsphere technology developed by Alkermes. The medicine offers a continuous release of exenatide with just one weekly dose.
