Date:7/9/2012

YORK, Pa., July 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Unilife Corporation ("Unilife" or "Company") (NASDAQ: UNIS, ASX: UNS), today announced that the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has granted the Company U.S. Patent No. 8,167,837 for the Unifill® ready-to-fill (prefilled) syringe.

It is a key component of our strong and fast-expanding intellectual property (IP) portfolio. The patent further validates the uniqueness of Unilife's proprietary integrated retraction technology.

"The importance of this patent is evident from the many pharmaceutical companies seeking access to our best-in-class devices.  Unilife's devices enable pharmaceutical companies to differentiate their injectable drugs from competitors' products, build market share and protect or increase their revenues.

"Expert legal opinion indicates that the unique safety, functionality and performance characteristics of our proprietary technologies may be utilized to extend the commercial lifecycles of drug-device combination products beyond the patent expiration of the drug itself. Because more than 70 biologics with combined annual revenues in excess of $70 billion are set to fall off the patent cliff between now and 2020, we have commenced discussions with a number of pharmaceutical customers with a view to enhancing and extending the commercial lifecycles of their blockbuster the
