About Albinterferon Alfa-2b (Albuferon)

Albinterferon alfa-2b is a genetic fusion of human albumin and interferon alfa created using the proprietary HGS albumin-fusion technology. Human albumin is the most prevalent naturally occurring blood protein in the human circulatory system, persisting in circulation in the body for approximately 19 days. Research has shown that genetic fusion of therapeutic proteins to human albumin decreases clearance and prolongs the half-life of the therapeutic proteins.

Albuferon is being developed by HGS and Novartis for the treatment of chronic hepatitis C under an exclusive worldwide co-development and commercialization agreement entered into in June 2006. HGS and Novartis will co-commercialize Albuferon in the United States and will share clinical development costs, U.S. commercialization costs and U.S. profits equally. Novartis will be responsible for commercialization in the rest of the world and will pay HGS a royalty on those sales. Clinical development, commercial milestone and other payments to HGS could total as much as $507.5 million, including $132.5 million received to date.

Albuferon dosed once every two weeks has completed Phase 3 development. Global marketing applications are planned in fall 2009. In addition, Novartis has initiated a Phase 2b trial to evaluate Albuferon dosed once every four weeks.
