LEVADEX Analysis Shows Potential to Treat a Broad Spectrum of Migraine
***UPDATED SATELLITE COORDINATES***

Migraine is a common, debilitating neurological disorder that affects
approximately 30 million people in the United States, according to the
National Headache Foundation. Limitations of oral triptans, the class of
prescription drugs widely used for migraines, include slow onset of
significant pain relief between 45 and 90 minutes, substantial variability in
patient response and side effects such as heightened blood pressure.

MAP Pharmaceuticals, Inc. will present analysis of data from the efficacy
portion of the first Phase 3 trial of LEVADEX(TM) at the 14th Congress of the
International Headache Society. Data from this Phase 3 trial show the
potential of LEVADEX to be effective in treating acute migraine as well as a
broad spectrum of migraine, including migraine subpopulations that are often
resistant to current therapies, migraine with moderate and severe pain,
migraine with nausea and vomiting, and migraine with and without aura.
LEVADEX is an orally inhaled migraine therapy that patients administer
themselves using the company’s proprietary TEMPO(R) inhaler.
