Trading in Regeneron Common Stock Halted
Date:6/17/2011

TARRYTOWN, N.Y., June 17, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Regeneron Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: REGN) announced that NASDAQ has halted trading of the company's common stock today.  The Dermatologic and Ophthalmic Drugs Advisory Committee of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is meeting today to discuss the company's Biologics License Application (BLA) for EYLEA™, also known as VEGF Trap-Eye, for the treatment of the neovascular form of age-related macular degeneration (wet AMD).  

Regeneron submitted a BLA for marketing approval in wet AMD in the U.S. in February 2011 and received a Priority Review designation.  Under Priority Review, the target date for an FDA decision on the EYLEA BLA is August 20, 2011.

About EYLEAVascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF) is a naturally occurring protein in the body.  Its normal role in a healthy organism is to trigger formation of new blood vessels (angiogenesis) supporting the growth of the body's tissues and organs.  However, in certain diseases, such as age-related macular degeneration, it is also associated with the growth of abnormal new blood vessels in the eye, which exhibit vascular permeability and lead to edema.  

EYLEA (aflibercept ophthalmic solution), also known as VEGF Trap-Eye, is a fully human fusion protein, consisting of portions of VEGF receptors 1 and 2, that binds all forms of VEGF-A along with the related Placental Growth Factor (PlGF).  EYLEA is a specific and highly potent blocker of these growth factors.  EYLEA is specially purified and contains iso-osmotic buffer concentrations, allowing for injection into the eye.

Regeneron and Bayer HealthCare are collaborating on the global development of EYLEA for the treatment of the neovascular form of age-related macular degeneration (wet AMD), central retinal vein occlusion (CRVO), diabetic macular edema (DME), and other eye diseases and disorders.  Bayer submitted an application for marketing authorization in Europe in wet AMD in June 2011.

Bayer HealthCare will market EYLEA™ outside the United States, where the companies will share equally the profits from any future sales of EYLEA.  Regeneron maintains exclusive rights to EYLEA in the United States.
