NEW YORK, Sept. 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The Prix Galien USA committee recognized excellence in scientific innovation that improves the state of human health last night during the fifth annual Prix Galien Awards Gala. The Pro Bono Humanum Award and the Prix Galien USA 2011 Awards for best biotechnology product and best pharmaceutical agent were presented at a ceremony held at the Museum of Natural History in New York City.  

The Prix Galien USA 2011 Award selection committee is an unrivaled network that includes seven Nobel Laureates in medicine and is led by Peace Prize winner, Professor Elie Wiesel.  This year the committee honored Dr. Paul Farmer as the recipient of the 2011 Pro Bono Humanum award for his lifetime of humanitarian efforts in Haiti and throughout the world, while also advancing the fight against infectious diseases, including AIDS and tuberculosis.  

"Dr. Farmer is an exemplary model of how one person can be a catalyst between science, business and government to serve as a beacon of hope to those in need," said Mr. Wiesel. "Dr. Farmer's dedication to combating deadly diseases while fighting poverty and inequality in developing countries is inspirational."

In recognition of the development and discovery of biotechnology products that improve the human condition, the selection committee awarded Janssen Biotech, Inc.'s Stelara® and Amgen's Prolia® each with the 2011 Prix Galien USA Award for Best Biotechnology Product.  Stelara®, from Janssen Biotech, Inc., is a treatment for plaque psoriasis that may help provide clearer skin and relief from symptoms, including plaque thickness, scaling, and redness.
