ROCHE FILES CTA FOR THIRD GENMAB ANTIBODY
Copenhagen, Denmark; October 2, 2007 - Genmab A/S (OMX: GEN) announced today that its partner Roche has filed a Clinical Trial Application (CTA) with the British Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) for a Genmab antibody developed under the companies' collaboration. Genmab will receive a milestone payment from Roche which does not influence Genmab's financial guidance for 2007.

If all goals are reached, the value of the collaboration to Genmab could be USD 100 million, plus royalties.
"We are pleased that the third antibody created by Genmab under our partnership with Roche is entering the clinic and to now have eight products in clinical development," said Lisa N. Drakeman, Ph.D., Chief Executive Officer of Genmab. "Genmab has now achieved the eleventh milestone under the collaboration."
