Forward-looking statements provide our current expectations or forecasts of future events, including the therapeutic indication and use, safety, efficacy, tolerability and potential of Cinryze and our focus, goals, strategy, research and development programs, and ability to develop pharmaceutical products, commercialize pharmaceutical products, and execute on our plans including clinical development activities with Cinryze related to subcutaneous administration in combination with rHuPH20 or alternatively as a standalone low volume formulation. There can be no assurance that clinical investigation of Cinryze in combination with rHuPH20 will resume. We may also experience delays in commencing a Phase 3 study of the subcutaneous administration of low volume Cinryze as a standalone therapy. Additionally, future studies with low volume Cinryze as a standalone therapy may not yield positive results or support further development of Cinryze for subcutaneous administration. The FDA or EMA may view the data regarding subcutaneous administration of low volume Cinryze as a standalone therapy as insufficient or inconclusive, request additional data, require additional clinical studies, delay any decision past the time frames anticipated by us, limit any approved indications, or deny the approval of Cinryze for subcutaneous administration. These factors, and other factors, including, but not limited to those described in our annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2012 and Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2013 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, could cause future results to differ materially from the expectations expressed in this press release. The forward-looking statements contained in this press release are made as of the date hereof and may become outdated over time. ViroPharma does not assume any responsibility for updating any forward-looking statements. These forward looking statements should not be relied upon as representing our assessments as of any date subsequent to the date of this press release. SOURCE ViroPharma Incorporated
