Dymista has received medical approval in Europe via the decentralized
registration procedure. Dymista is approved for the treatment of seasonal and
perennial allergic rhinitis. National registration processes, including
negotiations regarding pricing and reimbursement, will now follow in each
country prior to launch. Launches are anticipated in 2013 in several
countries.

"Patients in Europe that suffer from allergic rhinitis will soon have access
to a better treatment option than the current standard therapy. The faster and
more complete effect offers significant benefit to the growing numbers of
patients suffering from this difficult and inhibiting disease", said Anders
Lönner, CEO of Meda AB.
