Genzyme Reports Strong First-Quarter Growth
Date:4/23/2008

a and an established global regulatory and commercial

organization.

-- Sales of Aldurazyme(R) (laronidase) increased 38 percent to $37.0

million in the first quarter, compared with $26.8 million in the same

quarter a year ago. Genzyme now records sales of Aldurazyme on its top

line and makes tiered payments to BioMarin Pharmaceutical Inc. on

worldwide product sales under a restructured agreement between the

companies.

-- Sales of Thyrogen(R) (thyrotropin alfa for injection) grew 28 percent

in the first quarter to $33.8 million from $26.3 million, reflecting

ongoing improvement in thyroid cancer detection and well-established

treatment guidelines. The use of Thyrogen in ablation procedures is

also contributing to the product's growth, following the December 2007

U.S. approval for this indication.

-- Within the Renal business, sales of sevelamer therapies Renagel(R)

(sevelamer hydrochloride) and Renvela grew 23 percent to $168.7 million

from $137.4 million in the first quarter last year. In March, Genzyme

launched Renvela in the United States, where the company is engaged in

active discussions with the FDA to expand the product's labeling to

include chronic kidney disease patients with hyperphosphatemia who are

not on dialysis. The three companies that currently market phosphate

binders are working collaboratively to provide the FDA with information

that will help the agency determine the appropriate treatment paradigm

for these patients. Genzyme anticipates that the Renvela label

expansion will take place at the latest by the middle of 2009. Genzyme

has also filed for European approval for Renvela in both the dialysis

and chronic kidney disease indications.

-- Within the Transplant business, first-quarter sales of Thymoglobulin(R)
