Piramal Healthcare Limited Acquires Molecular Imaging Development Portfolio of Bayer Pharma
Date:4/15/2012

MUMBAI, India, April 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Piramal Healthcare Limited [NSE: PIRHEALTH, BSE: 500302] ("Piramal"), announced that it has signed an agreement to acquire worldwide rights to the molecular imaging research and development portfolio of Bayer Pharma AG ("Bayer") through its newly created subsidiary – Piramal Imaging SA. The portfolio includes rights to florbetaben, which is in the final stages of its Phase III clinical trials. First Phase III results will be presented on April 25th 2012 at the American Academy of Neurology's 64th Annual Meeting in New Orleans.

Florbetaben is a PET tracer for the detection of beta-Amyloid plaque deposition in the brain, which is the pathological hallmark of disease in probable Alzheimer's disease patients. Detection of beta-Amyloid depositions is expected to result in earlier diagnosis and more specific treatment of Alzheimer's disease.

The Phase III trial showed that PET imaging with florbetaben reliably detects beta-Amyloid in the brain during life with great accuracy and thus shows value as a potential tool to aid in the diagnosis and assessment of Alzheimer's disease. All study endpoints were met. The visual assessment procedure proposed for routine clinical practice demonstrated 100% sensitivity and 92% specificity with excellent inter-reader agreement (kappa = 0.88).

Commenting on the transaction, Mr. Ajay Piramal, Chairman Piramal Group, said, "This is the second acquisition of late stage assets after our acquisition of assets of BioSyntech in 2011, where we have recently received the European CE mark approval for an innovative bio-orthopaedic product for cartilage repair, BST-CarGel®, which enables the company to commercialize BST-CarGel® in all of the countries in the European Union. We plan to build a promising portfolio in the pharma space, including our newly acquired Molecular Imaging assets, which will help us create a global branded pharma business.
