  • Expiration of Hatch Waxman exclusivity for Coreg CR® with no generic formulation yet approved;
  • The Company filed a citizen’s petition with the FDA requesting that any generic formulation be held to the same standards regarding minimum blood plasma concentrations over 24 hours (Cmin) as Coreg CR; and
  • Continued progress with existing programs with Pfizer, Merck-Serono, Baxter, and other unnamed partners.

For the first quarter 2010, Flamel reported total revenues of $8.1 million versus $12.1 million in the year-ago period; first quarter revenues in the year-ago period included a $4 million milestone from GlaxoSmithKline (GSK).
