Presenting Sponsor Mylan Specialty L.P. Calls on Communities Nationwide to Join The Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE) Walk for Food Allergy

BASKING RIDGE, N.J., May 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- In recognition of Food Allergy Awareness Week, Mylan Specialty L.P., the fully integrated specialty pharmaceutical business of Mylan Inc. (NASDAQ: MYL), today announced their participation as the national presenting sponsor of the Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE) Walk for Food Allergy. With an estimated one in 13 children in the U.S. living with a food allergy, a considerable increase from previously reported figures, the walks bring together communities across the country to raise funds for important food allergy research, education, advocacy and awareness.

"Mylan Specialty is honored to support the FARE Walk for Food Allergy for the seventh consecutive year," said Heather Bresch , CEO of Mylan Inc. "We remain committed to those with potentially life-threatening or severe allergies, and given the growing incidence of food allergies, it's important that we continue to raise awareness to ensure that everyone is prepared to manage a life-threatening allergic reaction. The FARE Walk for Food Allergy aims to accomplish just that, by joining people together in a way that inspires others, motivates change and drives conversation about this significant public health issue."

Food allergies are a common cause of anaphylaxis, a life-threatening allergic reaction. The most common food allergens include peanuts, tree nuts, shellfish, fish, dairy, soy, eggs and wheat. People with severe allergies should have an anaphylaxis action plan in place, which includes avoiding known allergens, recognizing symptoms, having access to two epinephrine auto-injectors at all times and seeking immediate emergency medical care should anaphylaxis occur.

"The FARE Walk for Food Allergy is one of our flagship programs, and we are pleased to again have Mylan Specialty on board as our presenting sponsor," said John L. Lehr , Chief Executive Officer of FARE. "This year, with more than 65 walks planned nationwide, the Walk program continues to raise critical funds for food allergy education programs, advocacy initiatives and research, and to bring together thousands of Americans to increase awareness and understanding of the life-altering and potentially life-threatening nature of food allergies."

About Anaphylaxis
Anaphylaxis is a life-threatening allergic reaction that has many possible triggers, occurs quickly, without warning, and must be treated immediately with epinephrine. Symptoms may include hives or redness of the skin, tightness in the throat, nausea, dizziness, breathing problems, a decrease in blood pressure and/or fainting. Anaphylaxis can be caused by triggers such as food, stinging and biting insects, medicines, latex or even exercise. Epinephrine is the only first-line treatment for anaphylaxis. According to the food allergy guidelines developed by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, if experiencing anaphylaxis, a person should use an epinephrine auto-injector and seek immediate emergency medical attention. Epinephrine is a naturally-occurring hormone, also known as adrenaline, and it should be available at all times to patients at risk. Delays in epinephrine administration have been associated with negative health consequences, even possibly death.
