"Hunter syndrome is a devastating disease and until now, Mexican citizens had no viable treatment," said Dr. Luis Figuera Villanueva, Title C Investigator, Division of the Genetic Center of Western Biomedical, Investigator of the IMSS and Professor of Human Genetics for the Central University of Heath Sciences, University of Guadalajara. "As a physician, it's exciting and rewarding to now be able help these patients and their families and offer them hope for a brighter future."

Since its U.S. approval in July 2006, ELAPRASE has been approved for marketing and commercial distribution in 37 countries worldwide including countries in Europe and Japan. Shire expects to launch the product in Mexico within the first half of 2008.

About ELAPRASE

ELAPRASE is a purified form of the lysosomal enzyme iduronate-2-sulfatase and is produced by recombinant DNA technology in a human cell line.

Shire Human Genetic Therapies is actively tracking health data among individuals affected by Hunter syndrome as part of the company's long-term outcome survey, called the Hunter Outcome Survey (HOS). HOS is designed to support the gathering, analysis, reporting and sharing of data from around the world about Hunter syndrome. Shire believes that the inclusion of all people affected by Hunter syndrome, whether on therapy or not, and the analysis and dissemination of this information will allow for further understanding of Hunter syndrome and disease education on a global scale.
