Mylan Applauds New Federal Legislation to Increase Anaphylaxis Preparedness in Schools
Date:11/14/2013

PITTSBURGH, Nov. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Mylan Inc. (NASDAQ: MYL) commends federal legislation signed by President Barack Obama yesterday aimed at protecting people living with potentially life-threatening allergies.

"Recent tragedies have reinforced that when anaphylaxis occurs, every minute matters and immediate access to epinephrine and emergency medical care is crucial. The new federal law is a critical step for improving anaphylaxis preparedness in schools," said Heather Bresch, CEO of Mylan. "We applaud those who worked tirelessly to make this bill a reality – from Congress, government officials and leading advocacy organizations to parents, caregivers, patients and health care professionals."

The passage of this federal legislation demonstrates national, bipartisan support for stock epinephrine policies in the school setting. Stock epinephrine refers to epinephrine auto-injectors that are prescribed to an entity, such as a school, rather than a specific individual, to be used in the event anaphylaxis occurs.

Bresch added, "This legislative milestone inspires us to work even harder on advocating for increased anaphylaxis awareness, preparedness and access to treatment. One of the programs that Mylan is most proud of is our EpiPen4Schools® initiative.
