JERUSALEM -- December 4, 2013

Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd. (NYSE:TEVA) today announced that 15 new
projects have entered its development pipeline from its New Therapeutic
Entities (NTE) program.

Launched one year ago, the NTE program has delivered new pipeline assets in
major therapeutic areas, including:

  *Innovation in the abuse deterrent delivery of opioids for pain
  *Significant development in the delivery of a key schizophrenia treatment
  *New targeted release approach to improve the safety profile of a common
    treatment for Crohn's Disease

Based on known molecules that are formulated, delivered, or used in a novel
way to address unmet patient need and improve adherence and efficacy, the NTE
program is a major element in Teva's strategy for growth. It was established
to leverage Teva's vast molecular catalogue, advanced technological
capabilities and extensive specialty drug development expertise. The program
was designed to "industrialize" the process of generating, evaluating and
rapidly and cost-effectively developing new specialty medicine concepts, which
bring distinct and definite advantages over current therapies

"Bringing 15 new development programs into the pipeline in one year is
exciting," said Dr. Michael Hayden, Teva's President of Global R&D and Chief
Scientific Officer. "Moreover, the products we will be developing represent
genuine advances on existing therapies, and will deliver real benefit to
patients. The rigorous process we have established to identify and evaluate
these projects will support successful delivery of these new treatments for
the patients that need them."

An infographic overview of the process and projects can be accessed here.
However, the full NTE story can be seen and heard during the Teva In-Focus NTE
webinar (see below for log-in details). The webinar will include an in-depth
review of certain key projects from the 2013 program, outlining the global
market and unmet needs for each one. It will highlight the approach and
technologies Teva is using to improve upon known molecules to address these
unmet needs, and provide a clear picture of the development plans and expected
therapeutic benefits.

Dr. Michael Hayden, Teva’s President of Global R&D and Chief Scientific
Officer, will lead the webinar and will be joined by key leaders from Teva’s
NTE program.

A question and answer session will follow the presentation.
