ViroPharma Launches 'HAE and Me,' A New Online Community to Unite People Living With Hereditary Angioedema
Date:3/21/2011

EXTON, Pa., March 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- ViroPharma Incorporated (Nasdaq: VPHM) today announced the launch of "HAE and Me," an online community that unites teens and adults with hereditary angioedema (HAE) through shared experiences to help them better manage their disease.  The website, www.HAEandMe.com, features information about HAE, video stories, and first-hand tips from patients, as well as expert advice about living with this rare and potentially life-threatening swelling disease.

"In speaking with patients, we've learned how helpful it is for them to connect with and learn from each other, because one person's experience can inspire countless others," said Kristina Broadbelt, ViroPharma's associate director of global public relations and advocacy.  "'HAE and Me' is designed to address that need by uniting and educating the HAE community and reminding patients that they're not alone."

"HAE and Me" features a dedicated section for "Gen HAE," or teens and young adults with HAE - a patient population with unique needs.  While trying to forge their own identity, a young person with HAE has the added challenge of dealing with a chronic and debilitating disease in which symptoms often begin to manifest or worsen during adolescence.  The content was developed with input from teens with HAE, and focuses on how to overcome common issues and experiences Gen HAE patients may face, like fitting in with their peers, dating, and being involved in extracurricular activities and sports.

"GenHAE" also gives visitors who have questions about navigating life with a rare disease like HAE the opportunity to submit them to Dr. Miriam Kaufman, professor in the Department of Pediatrics at the University of Toronto and the Division of Adolescent Medicine at The Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto.  Dr. Kaufman,
