WOODCLIFF LAKE, N.J., Aug. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Eisai Inc. announced today
the launch of a new website to provide employers with an educational resource
for information about obesity management. The website, "Closing the Gap:
Obesity Management for Employers," can be accessed at http://ctgobesity.com/.

"We know from our research that most employers consider obesity to be a top
employee health challenge," said Dave Martin, Vice President of Managed
Markets, Value and Access for Eisai. "While there are some helpful resources
available for employers, we also noted significant gaps; therefore, we decided
to build this all-inclusive website as a companion to an e-newsletter, in
partnership with The Benfield Group."

Both the e-newsletter and the website will provide employers access to
articles, links to other sites and other downloadable tools including:

Closing the Gap in Obesity Management Solutions: The Importance of Integrating
New Prescription Medications into Employer Strategies to Help Reduce Obesity
in their Employee and Dependent Populations. A publication that reviews the
challenges and opportunities of obesity management and provides
recommendations from an Eisai-sponsored advisory board of leading employer
health benefit decision-makers on approaches to update employer strategies.

Blueprint for Health™: A free, interactive online tool available through the
American College of Occupational and Environmental Medicine (ACOEM) that
allows employers to estimate direct and indirect costs associated with the
conditions they select, by entering key employee demographics.

Your Weight Matters(SM) Campaign (YWM): The Your Weight Matters Campaign was
developed by the Obesity Action Coalition (OAC) and sponsored by Eisai. The
Your Weight Matters Campaign encourages all Americans to measure their weight
and take the Campaign Challenge by making a pledge to talk to a healthcare
provider about their weight and its impact on their health. All Campaign
participants receive a FREE toolkit to help them prepare for the conversation
of weight with their healthcare provider.

The content for the Blueprint for Health and Your Weight Matters Campaign
websites are not controlled by Eisai.
