Vienna (Austria),  March 4, 2010 (euro adhoc) - Intercell AG (VSE: ICLL) today announced that Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunization (JCVI) in the UK has recently updated the Japanese Encephalitis chapter of Immunisation against infectious diseases ("Green Book") to recommend the use of IXIARO® for individuals aged 18 years and older to protect individuals for high risk of exposure during travel or in the course of their occupation. This decision follows the expanded recommendations of the US Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) in 2009. Further national specific recommendations in Europe are expected for the year 2010.

"We are pleased that our joint medical management efforts with our partner Novartis are materializing now also in Europe with the first country specific recommendations. Especially for novel travel vaccines recommendations are key to foster disease and product awareness and thus increasing vaccination rates and product uptake," stated Gerd Zettlmeissl, Chief Executive Officer of Intercell.

Intercell's novel Japanese Encephalitis vaccine is a purified, inactivated vaccine for active immunization of adults against the Japanese Encephalitis virus.
