MeadWestvaco Corporation (NYSE: MWV), a global leader in packaging and
packaging solutions, will discuss preservative-free medication dispensing at
Pharmapack Europe, Paris, on 14 February at 09:55 CET. The presentation by
Giorgio Osele, director, European Sales, Medical Plastics Division, MWV
Healthcare, will include proprietary research demonstrating that both
physicians and patients prefer preservative-free medication dispensing
options. Osele will also review how increasingly sophisticated delivery
solutions have enabled a growing trend of preservative-free formulations for
prescription and over-the-counter nasal, topical and ophthalmic medications.

Earlier this month, MWV announced a $7.5 million expansion of its global
pharmaceutical dispensing systems manufacturing Centre of Excellence in Hemer,
Germany. The investment demonstrates the company’s continued commitment to
innovating preservative-free dispensing solutions.

A second Pharmapack presentation, to be held at the MWV booth (#158), will
discuss the use of “smart” (electronic event monitoring) packaging – a proven
and reliable technique for analyzing patient adherence – in clinical trials.
The presentation by John Musaus, global head, Electronic Adherence Solutions,
MWV Healthcare, will highlight clinical trial patient data collected via smart
packaging and how the data revealed opportunities to improve adherence. Key
learnings from smart packaging use cases in both clinical development and
post-approval applications will also be shared. This presentation will take
place on 14 February at 9:55 CET.

Pharmapack Europe will be held 13-14 February in Paris at the Grande Halle de
la Villette. MWV Healthcare will be at Stand 158.
