regarding potential marketing approvals, new indications or labeling for

Lu-PSMA-617. You should not place undue reliance on these statements. 
Such forward-looking statements are based on our current beliefs and 
expectations regarding future events, and are subject to significant 
known and unknown risks and uncertainties. Should one or more of these 
risks or uncertainties materialize, or should underlying assumptions 
prove incorrect, actual results may vary materially from those set forth

can there be any guarantee that (177) Lu-PSMA-617 will be commercially 
successful in the future. In particular, our expectations regarding 
(177) Lu-PSMA-617 could be affected by, among other things, the 
uncertainties inherent in research and development, including clinical 
trial results and additional analysis of existing clinical data; 
regulatory actions or delays or government regulation generally; global 
trends toward health care cost containment, including government, payor 
and general public pricing and reimbursement pressures and requirements 
for increased pricing transparency; our ability to obtain or maintain 
proprietary intellectual property protection; the particular prescribing 
preferences of physicians and patients; general political, economic and 
business conditions, including the effects of and efforts to mitigate 
pandemic diseases such as COVID-19; safety, quality, data integrity or 
manufacturing issues; potential or actual data security and data privacy 
breaches, or disruptions of our information technology systems, and 
other risks and factors referred to in Novartis AG's current Form 20-F 
on file with the US Securities and Exchange Commission. Novartis is 
providing the information in this media update as of this date and does
