MAP Pharmaceuticals to Present Unit Dose Budesonide Phase 2 Clinical Data at the World Asthma Meeting

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., June 22, 2007 /PRNewswire/ -- MAP Pharmaceuticals, Inc. today announced that it will present Phase 2 data from its Unit Dose Budesonide (UDB) pediatric asthma therapy clinical program at the World Asthma Meeting at the Lutfi Kirdar Convention and Exhibition Center in Istanbul, Turkey.

The oral and poster presentation entitled, "Efficacy and safety of a novel submicron particle formulation of budesonide for nebulized delivery in a 6 week study in 1-18 year old asthmatic children" will be presented on Monday, June 25th at 4:30pm local time.

In addition, the Company has a second poster presentation available for viewing at the conference. The second poster entitled, "Safety, tolerability, and pharmacokinetics of a novel submicron particle formulation of nebulized budesonide for the treatment of asthma" will be presented on Saturday, June 23rd at 4:30pm local time.

Unit Dose Budesonide is the Company's proprietary nebulized version of budesonide intended to treat pediatric asthma in children from six months to eight years of age. UDB is designed to be administered more quickly and to provide efficacy at lower doses than conventional nebulized budesonide, which is the current leading treatment for pediatric asthma. Potential faster delivery and efficacy at a lower dose together may offer improved safety, compliance and convenience for young patients who suffer from asthma.
