Date:5/30/2008

Panel Votes, 16-0, in Favor of Short-Term Treatment of Chronic Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP)

CHICAGO, May 30 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- GlaxoSmithKline (NYSE: GSK) today announced that the United States Food and Drug Administration's Oncology Drugs Advisory Committee (ODAC) unanimously voted, 16-0, that PROMACTA(R) (eltrombopag) demonstrated a favorable risk-benefit profile for the short-term treatment of patients with chronic idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP).

"An FDA approval for eltrombopag would represent an important development for these patients and would make the medication the first oral treatment of its kind for this disease. We look forward to working with the agency to achieve that goal."

In addition to today's recommendation, the FDA recently granted eltrombopag orphan drug designation for this indication. Orphan designation is a special status the FDA grants to products that treat a rare disease or conditio
