SciClone Announces New ZADAXIN(R) Anti-Counterfeiting Label

SciClone Announces New ZADAXIN(R) Anti-Counterfeiting Label Wins
Major Industry Award 
FOSTER CITY, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/04/12 --  SciClone
Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: SCLN) today announced that its newly
created anti-counterfeiting Pharma-Comb Void label for ZADAXIN has
won the prestigious "Innovator Award" in the annual competition
sponsored by the Tag and Label Manufacturers Institute (TLMI). The
ZADAXIN label, which was created for SciClone by Schreiner MediPharm,
a Germany-based developer and manufacturer of pharmaceutical
specialty labels, is based on an innovative multi-part concept to
ensure product safety and security and to counteract the illegal
practice of refilling previously used medicine vials. 
"Drug counterfeiting is a serious challenge facing the pharmaceutical
industry, public health and regulatory authorities worldwide,
threatening patient safety, compromising the supply and effectiveness
of medical interventions and harming the commercial viability of
important drug therapies," said Friedhelm Blobel, Ph.D., SciClone's
Chief Executive Officer. "SciClone is committed to ensuring patient
safety and security for all of our marketed products. We intend to
continue implementation of an aggressive anti-counterfeiting strategy
for ZADAXIN, and to work in partnership with agencies and health
authorities to combat the crime of trafficking in illegal medicines." 
The ZADAXIN Pharma-Comb Void label is designed to be functionally
destroyed during its initial use. When the label's tear strip --
which also runs around the closure cap -- is removed, the
inscriptions "Opened" and "Used" appear in the film's two indicator
fields. This design is intended to make the undetected reuse of a
glass container with an original label virtually impossible. SciClone
believes that the Pharma-Comb Void label overcomes the limitations of
conventional vial which, even when equipped with overt security
features, such as holograms or color-shifting inks, can be filled a
second time and sold as originals without detection. The new ZADAXIN
label is designed to counteract this practice, and also offers a
valuable added benefit for healthcare professionals: when the label
is opened, a detachable part is released that serves to mark the
syringe accordingly.
