-limiting, such as swelling and redness. No drug-related allergic reactions occurred. Administration time and flow rates were limited by pump characteristics and not by patient discomfort.

Phase III Trial for Subcutaneous Administration of GAMMAGARD LIQUID

In addition to the announcement of results for the Phase I/II for GAMMAGARD LIQUID and Enhanze Technology, Baxter also announced the initiation of a pivotal Phase III trial of subcutaneous administration of GAMMAGARD LIQUID alone. The Phase III trial will evaluate the bioavailability of GAMMAGARD LIQUID after administration intravenously, subcutaneously or subcutaneously at an adapted dose, as measured by the area under the curve of IgG concentration vs. time curve per week. Final results of the study are expected to become available in 2009.

About Enhanze Technology

Enhanze Technology is Halozyme's proprietary drug delivery technology based on rHuPH20, a recombinant form of hyaluronidase, a naturally occurring human enzyme. The rHuPH20 mechanism of action is its ability to temporarily break down hyaluronic acid, the space-filling "gel"-like substance that is a major component of subcutaneous tissues. When combined or co-formulated with certain injectable drugs, Enhanze Technology may facilitate the absorption and dispersion of these drugs by temporarily clearing a path through connective tissue. Molecules as large as 200 nanometers may pass freely through the perforated extracellular matrix, which recovers its normal density in 48 hours, leading to a drug delivery platform that does not permanently alter the architecture of the tissue.
