    About Helsinn Healthcare

    Helsinn is a privately owned pharmaceutical group with headquarters in
Switzerland. Helsinn's core business is the licensing of pharmaceuticals in
therapeutic areas (oncology, cancer supportive care, pain and inflammation,

entities and to complete their development from the performance of
pre-clinical/clinical studies and CMC development to the attainment of market
approvals in strategic markets (U.S. and Europe). Helsinn's products are
eventually out-licensed to its worldwide consolidated network of partners for
distribution. Helsinn's key products in the US are Aloxi(R) (palonosetron)
distributed by MGI Pharma and Gelclair(R) distributed by EKR Therapeutics
Inc., US. The active pharmaceutical ingredients and the drug products are
manufactured at Helsinn's cGMP facilities and supplied worldwide to its
customers. Helsinn's chemical business focuses on the pharmaceutical chemical
process development and manufacturing of advanced intermediates, Active
Pharmaceutical Ingredients (APIs) and High Potency Active Ingredients (HPAIs)
for both the Helsinn group and its outsourcing partners. For more information
