Shire Presents Results of Five Lialda(R) (mesalamine) Analyses at ACG 2009 Annual Scientific Meeting
Date:10/26/2009

SAN DIEGO, Oct. 26 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Shire plc (LSE: SHP, Nasdaq: SHPGY), the global specialty biopharmaceutical company, presented the results of three 5-aminosalicylic acid (5-ASA) persistency analyses at ACG 2009 Annual Scientific Meeting, evaluating persistency of Lialda® (mesalamine), Asacol® (mesalamine), Pentasa® (mesalamine) (250mg and 500mg), balsalazide [combined results from generic balsalazide disodium and Colazal® (balsalazide disodium)], and Dipentum® (olsalazine sodium) (500mg). Additionally, on October 27, 2009, Shire will present results of a Lialda patient experience survey as well as the results of a study that evaluated the impact of oral 5-ASAs on all-cause health care utilization and costs among ulcerative colitis (UC) patients with active disease.

"Persistency plays a significant role in the management of UC, and this data shows us just how challenging adherence can be for UC patients," said Roger Adsett, senior vice president of Shire's GI business unit. "The results of the Lialda and 5-ASA persistency analyses will provide insights as to how UC patients manage their mesalamine prescription refills."

Lialda is an FDA-approved, once-daily oral medication for the induction of remission in patients with active, mild to moderate UC. The safety and effectiveness of Lialda beyond eight weeks have not been established.
