Vienna (Austria), July 13, 2010 (euro adhoc) - Intercell AG (VSE: ICLL) announces that Swissmedic has approved IXIARO®, its vaccine against Japanese Encephalitis. IXIARO®, which is distributed and marketed by Novartis, is now available in Switzerland.

The decision by the Swiss authorities represents another important milestone for the licensure process initiated for selected attractive market segments. Intercell's vaccine, which helps to prevent Japanese Encephalitis, has already been approved and launched in the USA, Europe, Canada and Australia.

"The Swissmedic approval is great news and another important step in the product's global reach", states Thomas Lingelbach, Chief Operating Officer of Intercell.

IXIARO® is a modern purified, inactivated vaccine for active immunization of adults against infections caused by the Japanese Encephalitis Virus. IXIARO® is manufactured at Intercell's proprietary manufacturing facility in Scotland using tissue culture rather than live organisms.
