ThromboGenics Opens New U.S. Headquarters

LEUVEN, Belgium, March 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

U.S. Organization Continues to Build Ahead of Ocriplasmin's Planned  Launch


ThromboGenics NV (Euronext Brussels: THR), a biopharmaceutical company focused on developing innovative ophthalmic medicines, announces the opening of its new U.S headquarters. The facility which is situated in Iselin, New Jersey, is the new home to the Company's U.S. organization which is led by Dr. David Pearson, Head of U.S. Country Operations. ThromboGenics has been growing its U.S. team in recent months building its marketing, medical, commercial, market access and regulatory expertise ahead of the Company's planned launch of its lead product ocriplasmin.

ThromboGenics intends to resubmit a BLA for ocriplasmin in the U.S. before the end of April 2012 and expects the product to be granted Priority Review by the FDA. Ocriplasmin will be filed for the treatment of symptomatic vitreomacular adhesion (VMA) including macular hole.

Dr Patrik De Haes, CEO of ThromboGenics, commented: "The opening of our new U.S Headquarters is an important step as we build the first-class organization that we need to successfully launch ocriplasmin in the world's largest healthcare market. We remain on track to resubmit a BLA for ocriplasmin before the end of April for Priority Review. Our U.S. team is expecting a very exciting and highly productive period as it prepares for the anticipated approval of ocriplasmin by the end of 2012."

As a result of its decision to locate its headquarters in Iselin, ThromboGenics will benefit from a Business Employment Incentive grant from the New Jersey Economic Development Authority whose value could exceed $1.0 million over a multi-year period.
