EMEA Grants Kiadis Pharma Lead Product ATIR(TM) Orphan Drug Designation
Date:9/22/2008

AMSTERDAM, September 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Kiadis Pharma announced today that its lead product ATIR(TM) has been granted orphan drug designation (ODD) by the European Medicines Agency (EMEA) for the prevention of acute Graft versus Host Disease (GvHD) following an allogeneic bone marrow transplantation.

"Following the orphan drug designation granted by the FDA for our lead product ATIR(TM), this is another important milestone in the development of ATIR(TM) as a novel approach which may enable a safe and potentially life-saving mismatched bone marrow transplantation as a treatment option for end-stage blood cancer patients" says Dr. Manja Bouman, Chief Executive Officer of Kiadis Pharma.

The EMEA's orphan drug designation is reserved for new therapies being developed to treat life-threatening or chronically debilitating diseases or conditions that are relatively rare in the European Union and for which no satisfactory therapy is available. The orphan drug designation provides for incentives to support research and development, exemption from user fees and a ten-year period of market exclusivity in the European Union after product approval.
