Copenhagen, November 23, 2010 - NASDAQ OMX (NASDAQ: NDAQ) announces that the trading of Zealand Pharma (ZEAL) shares opens today on NASDAQ OMX Copenhagen. Zealand Pharma is a Mid Cap company within the health care sector. This is the fourteenth company to be listed on NASDAQ OMX in Europe in 2010. Zealand Pharma is a Danish biopharmaceutical company dedicated to the discovery and development of innovative peptide-based drugs for the treatment of metabolic diseases such as diabetes and obesity, as well as gastrointestinal diseases.
