          London, United Kingdom, May 23, 2002 -- Amarin
Corporation plc (NASDAQ: AMRN) today announced the acceptance for
filing and substantive review of a New Drug Application (NDA) for
Zelapar ( tm )(selegiline HCl orally dissolving tablets) by the
U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).  The filing was made by
Elan Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Elan), current holder of exclusive
license rights to market and distribute Zelapar in the U.S.  As
previously announced, Amarin has an exclusive option to obtain the
U.S. rights to Zelapar from Elan.  Upon approval and exercise of
the option, Zelapar will be marketed by Amarin Pharmaceuticals,
Inc., the pharmaceutical development and marketing subsidiary of
Amarin Corporation, plc.

          Zelapar, a novel and proprietary formulation of
selegiline, an MAO-B inhibitor, is an oral tablet using the
patented Zydis( r ) fast-dissolving technology of RP Scherer
Corporation, Elan's licensor.  Zelapar is being developed as
adjunct treatment to levodopa for the symptoms of Parkinson's
disease.  Selegiline, the active ingredient in Zelapar, is
approved for that indication in conventional tablet form.  The
Zelapar tablet dissolves in seconds and is absorbed in the tissues
of the mouth, without swallowing or the need for liquids.

          "We believe that the convenience of Zelapar for
Parkinson's patients, many of whom have trouble swallowing,
combined with other unique advantages of the formulation, will
make Zelapar an important new treatment option in addition to
currently available therapies for Parkinson's," commented Rick
Stewart, Amarin's chief executive officer.  "Now that the NDA has
been accepted for filing, we look forward to completion of the
substantive review process by the FDA, and working toward approval
of the NDA," he added. "On approval, Zelapar will complement our
currently marketed Parkinson's disease product, Permax( r )
(pergolide mesylate tablets),  progressing Amarin toward its goal
of becoming a leader in the treatment of movement disorders," said
Rick Stewart. Permax is a dopamine agonist indicated as adjunct
treatment for the treatment of Parkinson's disease.

           The U.S. rights to Zelapar are currently licensed to
Elan by R P Scherer Corporation, a unit of Cardinal Health.  Elan
will pay all research and development costs, including the costs
of pursuing the NDA to approval.  Amarin's option is exercisable
at any time up to and for a period of time after any FDA approval
of the NDA for Zelapar. An initial payment of $10 million would be
made by Amarin upon the closing of the exercise of the option.
The agreement provides for two additional milestone payments
aggregating $27.5 million, contingent on achieving certain revenue
levels, with a final milestone of $15 million payable eight years
from exercise of the option. The final payment is subject to
certain extension rights, and is also subject to certain
reductions based on prior payments made.  Amarin would also make
royalty payments based on net sales of Zelapar in the U.S.  If
exercised, consummation of the option would be subject to
customary closing conditions, including approval under the Hart-
Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act.
