Shire Submits Biologics License Application (BLA) for REPLAGAL(R) With the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)
Date:12/22/2009

CAMBRIDGE, Massachusetts, December 22 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Shire plc (LSE: SHP, NASDAQ: SHPGY), the global specialty biopharmaceutical company, today announced that it has submitted a BLA with the FDA for REPLAGAL(R) (agalsidase alfa), its enzyme replacement therapy for Fabry disease. REPLAGAL first received marketing authorization in the European Union in 2001, and is approved for the treatment of Fabry disease in 45 countries.

REPLAGAL is currently available to U.S. Fabry patients under an FDA-approved treatment protocol, and the Company is also supporting emergency IND requests. Shire worked closely with the FDA to establish an early access program in response to the ongoing shortage of the currently marketed treatment for Fabry disease in the U.S.

"We continue to deliver on our commitment to the Fabry community by filing a BLA to support long-term access to REPLAGAL in the United States," said Sylvie Gregoire, President of Shire Human Genetic Therapies. "We understand that this has been a difficult time for patients and we remain committed to doing all we can to support the Fabry community during the supply shortage and for the long-term."

Shire expects its REPLAGAL supply to be adequate to meet anticipated global demand.
