Date:12/22/2009

in the course of severe sepsis. Discovered and developed by Eisai scientists, eritoran is believed to block activation of TLR4.

More than 750,000 individuals develop severe sepsis in North America each year, with a high mortality risk of 30-35% (depending on population studied). Incidence figures in Japan are believed to be similar to those reported for North America. The incidence of severe sepsis in the European Union has been estimated at 90.4 cases per 100,000 population, with a mortality of 36%.

Eisai's research and development efforts regarding eritoran and severe sepsis exemplify the company's human health care mission, which is to address unmet medical needs and increase benefits to patients and their families.
