Skyepharma PLC (SKYE) Research Update



1/21/2009 10:18:47 AM

LONDON--(Marketwire - January 21, 2009) -


                           Flutiform™ Update


LONDON, UK, 21 January 2009 -- SkyePharma PLC (LSE: SKP) today
announces that it has been notified by its partner Mundipharma that
there may be a few months' delay in the filing of the European
Marketing Authorisation Application for Flutiform™.  This is due to the
need to recruit additional patients into the on-going high dose
strength study, after some patients were assigned to the wrong study
arm in this four-armed study due to a randomisation issue.  There is no
cost implication for the additional work to SkyePharma as a result of
this.


Flutiform™ remains on track for a U.S. New Drug Application filing in
the first quarter of 2009.
