Insmed Launches National Awareness Campaign Surrounding Follow-On Biologics
Date:2/5/2008

RICHMOND, Va., Feb. 5 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Insmed Inc. (Nasdaq: INSM), a developer of follow-on biologics and biopharmaceuticals, today announced that it has launched a broad education campaign on the importance of establishing a regulatory pathway in the U.S. for large molecule protein-based drugs, known as follow-on biologics (FOBs), which are also commonly referred to as biosimilars or biogenerics.

-- An enhanced Insmed website containing enhanced FOB resources and

updates;

-- Interactive advocacy program utilizing user-generated content and

social networking platforms;

-- Stakeholder outreach and events with patient, healthcare provider,

employer, and policy groups.

"We hope that this renewed attention and the inception of these initiatives will shed some light onto the significant need for Congress to adopt legislation so patients can receive affordable access to life-saving biotech drugs," said Geoffrey Allan, Ph.D., CEO of Insmed. "Given Europe's previously established regulatory pathway for FOBs, the U.S. is clearly lagging behind other nations in respondin
