Parker & Waichman, LLP Comments on Published Study Underscoring Risks of Ortho Evra Birth Control Patch
NEW YORK, Sept. 26, 2005 (PRIMEZONE) -- Parker & Waichman, LLP (http://www.yourlawyer.com), a leading pharmaceutical liability law firm representing victims who have suffered side effects associated with the Ortho Evra Birth Control Patch, believes that a recent medical study, published in the journal Contraception, clearly illustrates the increased risks of Ortho Evra when compared with other forms of birth control. The study compares ethinylestradiol (EE) pharmacokinetics in three types of hormonal contraceptives: the transdermal patch, the vaginal ring, and an oral contraceptive. The study confirms that, "Of the three contraceptive methods, exposure to EE was highest for the patch group." It is believed that prolonged exposure to high levels of estrogen may be associated with increased risk of adverse effects, including blood clots, pulmonary emboli, and strokes. Ortho Evra is an adhesive, transdermal birth control patch manufactured by Ortho-McNeil, a division of Johnson & Johnson (NYSE: JNJ).

Telenor: Canal Digital Ensures Continued TV2 Distribution
OSLO, Norway, Sept. 26, 2005 (PRIMEZONE) -- Canal Digital Norge has signed a contract with TV2 for exclusive satellite distribution rights for the TV-channel for another two years. Canal Digital submitted the highest bid in a tender competition. "We are very happy to have secured the rights to go on distributing TV2. Canal Digital's customers currently get TV2 in the basic tier, and we want to continue offering that. That's why it was important to secure this agreement," says Executive Vice President Stig Eide Sivertsen. Canal Digital currently have 875,000 Nordic DTH customers. Norwegian households will now continue to receive TV2 in their basic tier. TV2 is the only commercial channel in Norway offering national coverage. The agreement between Canal Digital Norge and TV2 regulates exclusive satellite distribution of the TV2 channel. Canal Digital will also be distributing TV2-Zebra. "Putting together the best and most relevant TV package is important if we are to meet the increasingly tough competition in the market. To achieve this, it is necessary to enter into individual agreements; something our competitors are doing as well," says Stig Eide Sivertsen. "One of the reasons that exclusive distribution is important is that unlike some of our competitors, Canal Digital does not own any channels," Stig Eide Sivertsen points out. The renewed distribution agreement between TV2 and Canal Digital comes into force from 9 October 2005.
