Revolutionary HIV drug Fuzeon wins most prestigious award for innovation

/sup>. Roche has recently launched comprehensive nurse-to-patient and patient-to-patient support initiatives to help coach patients through the first three critical months of therapy by which time dramatic benefits of Fuzeon can be seen and self-injection becomes routine.

"The immediacy and magnitude of Fuzeon's benefits is a strong incentive for pre-treated patients to embrace Fuzeon as a core part of their next HIV treatment cocktail and, furthermore, data now show that these benefits can be maintained for two years," commented Dr Anton Pozniak, Consultant Physician, Department of HIV and Genitourinary, Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, UK.

International Prix Galien Award

The International Prix Galien award recognises significant advances in pharmaceutical research. Each year, the award is an opportunity to recognise the most important drugs introduced into the public market and the most significant research team in the pharmaceutical field. The Galien award has grown into a huge event and is now considered as the industry's equivalent of the Nobel prize and the highest accolade for pharmaceutical research and development.

Winning three International Prix Galien medals (1992 Neupogen; 1998 Invirase; 2004 Fuzeon) Roche has won the most international awards of any company. To date in 2004 Fuzeon has won a total of four national Prix Galien medals in Portugal, Netherlands, Belgium and UK. Other nationally awarded Roche medicines include Herceptin against breast cancer (2002) and the antiparkinson agent Madopar (1974).
