The poster presentation, which was accepted as a late-breaker, is entitled Rapid and Sustained Clinical Efficacy and Safety of Inhaled Dihydroergotamine Mesylate via a Novel Inhaler (Tempo(TM) Inhaler), Poster ID S77, and will be presented on Saturday, June 9, 2007 from 12:00 to 1:00pm CDT. In addition, the Company also has three other poster presentations available for viewing at the conference.

       System (Tempo(TM) Inhaler); Poster ID F07; June 8, 12:30 to 1:30pm CDT.


    -- Comparative Clinical Pharmacokinetics of Parent Drug and Metabolites

       Following Inhaled Dosing with Dihydroergotamine Mesylate via a Novel

       System (Tempo(TM) Inhaler); Poster ID F08; June 8, 12:30 to 1:30pm CDT.


    -- (5-HT, Adrenergic, Dopaminergic) Receptor Binding: Implications for

MAP Pharmaceuticals is developing a series of inhaled respiratory and systemic drug product candidates delivered with the Tempo inhaler. The first of these product candidates is MAP0004, a systemic migraine treatment designed to provide faster and more consistent relief than current non-injectable therapeutics. In early human studies, MAP0004 delivered therapeutic blood levels within ten minutes of inhalation, similar to those seen only after intravenous injection. This performance will potentially allow MAP0004 to mimic both the efficacy and blood levels of inj ectable therapy, offering fast relief without injections. By providing rapid onset with a novel formulation of a proven compound (dihydroergotamine mesylate), MAP Pharmaceuticals seeks to meet the treatment needs of the large, underserved population of migraine sufferers with MAP0004.
