Eurand to Present Zentase Phase III Data

MILAN, Italy, and DAYTON, Ohio, June 08, 2007 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ --Eurand to present data on Zentase at European Cystic Fibrosis Society Annual Meeting. .

-- Exocrine pancreatic insufficiency (EPI) is a deficiency of digestive

enzymes normally produced by the pancreas that can result from a number

of diseases, including cystic fibrosis, chronic pancreatitis, and

pancreatic cancer

-- EPI results in poor digestion and reduced absorption of nutrients

which, if untreated, can lead to impaired growth in children, impaired

immune response and shortened life expectancy

-- Treatment with pancreatic replacement products replaces enzymes lost

through this disease. Other than enzyme replacement, no known

alternative therapy for the loss of digestive enzymes is currently


-- Eurand completed two phase III clinical trials on its lead product

candidate, Zentase(TM), for the treatment of EPI

-- Eurand expects to initiate a rolling submission of its new drug

application (NDA) with the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for

Zentase for the treatment of EPI in the 2nd quarter of this year

-- Posters 243-246 will be presented on June 15th between 1:30-2:30pm:

1. Zentase, a New Pancreatic Enzyme Product (PEP), Is Safe and

Effective in Cystic Fibrosis (CF) Patients with Exocrine Pancreatic

Insufficiency (EPI)

2. Zentase, a New Pancreatic Enzyme Product (PEP), in Young Cystic

Fibrosis (CF) Patients with Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency (EPI)
< br /> 3. Child friendly dosing options for PEPs
