    87,697158,21686,182IXIARO®/JESPECT® Revenues from IXIARO®/JESPECT® product sales increased from EUR 0,4m in Q1 2010 to EUR 3.3m in Q1 2011. This excellent result in the usually weakest quarter of the year - due to travel seasonality - reflects the positive trend of increasing sales of IXIARO®/JESPECT® a already seen in 2010 in key travel markets and to U.S. military.

    Intercell expects a growth of sales to the U.S. military in 2011 due to higher vaccination rates and the finally expired stock of no longer manufactured JE-Vax®.

    Intercell continues to expand the global availability of IXIARO® by increasing the number of regulatory approvals and subsequent launches in various global markets. Furthermore it is planning to launch the product with its partner Novartis in additional European countries as well as Hong Kong and Singapore as the first Asian territories during 2011.

    The U.S. authorities recently confirmed to Intercell that the first postmarketing safety evaluation of IXIARO® concluded that no new safety concerns were identified and no labeling changes are requested at this time.
