Omthera Pharmaceuticals Announces Positive Long Term Bioavailability Data Comparing Epanova™ to Lovaza®
Date:1/9/2012

PRINCETON, N.J., Jan. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Omthera Pharmaceuticals, Inc., a privately held specialty pharmaceuticals company, today announced positive data from a pharmacokinetic study comparing 2 week bioavailability of Epanova to Lovaza®.  In the 52 subject clinical study, after 14 days of dosing on a low fat diet, plasma EPA and DHA levels were 5.8 fold higher in subjects dosed with Epanova compared to those dosed with Lovaza.  Additionally, Epanova increased steady state plasma levels of EPA plus DHA by 448%, compared to 90% for Lovaza.

Commenting on the results, Dr. Michael Davidson, Co-Founder and Chief Medical Officer of Omthera, stated, "We are extremely pleased with these results which confirm the superior bioavailability of Epanova over the leading prescription Omega-3 in the steady state. There is a clear dose response for triglyceride lowering with Omega-3 fatty acids and this data further supports our view that Epanova may well become the new best in class prescription product for addressing the rapidly growing unmet clinical need for the management of hypertriglyceridemia."

John J. P. Kastelein, M.D., Ph.D., Professor of Medicine and Chairman of the Department of Vascular Medicine at the Academic Medical Center (AMC) of the University of Amsterdam, and a member of Omthera's Scientific Advisory Board, noted, "Hypertriglyceridemia and its associated increase in cardiovascular risk has become an epidemic across the world. Prescription Omega-3's, due to their safety and proven efficacy, are ideally suited to provide the clinical solution to this growing problem. The new Epanova data showing marked improvement in long term bioavailability of EPA and DHA is stunning, and enhances my opinion that this will translate into improved triglyceride lowering effects."

President and CEO, Jerry Wisler, will provide an overview of these results during Omthera's corporate presentation at
