PARIS, October 20, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --

- New findings from the pivotal TEMSO Phase III study presented today at the joint ECTRIMS / ACTRIMS Congress -

- U.S. FDA Accepts New Drug Application for Teriflunomide for relapsing forms of MS -

Sanofi (EURONEXT: SAN and NYSE: SNY) and its subsidiary Genzyme announced today new data from the pivotal TEriflunomide Multiple Sclerosis Oral (TEMSO) Phase III trial showing that once-daily oral teriflunomide significantly reduced annualized rates of relapses leading to hospitalization. New data also confirmed the safety profile and efficacy of teriflunomide over a six-year period after the initial randomization. A total of fifteen presentations on teriflunomide are on the program for the fifth joint triennial congress of the European and American Committee for Treatment and Research in Multiple Sclerosis (ECTRIMS / ACTRIMS) in Amsterdam, Netherlands.

The companies also announced today that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has accepted for review Sanofi's new drug application (NDA) for oral teriflunomide as a potential therapy for people with relapsing forms of multiple sclerosis (MS).  Sanofi expects to file an application for regulatory approval with the European Medicines Agency (EMA) in the first quarter of 2012.

"The new results of the TEMSO study show that both 7mg and 14mg doses of teriflunomide could reduce the severity of relapses measured through annual rates of relapses leading to hospitalization as well as deliver encouraging long-term results on safety and efficacy," said Professor Paul O'Connor, Director of the MS Clinic at St. Michael's Hospital, Toronto, Canada, and principal investigator of the TEMSO study.

New post-hoc analyses showed that teriflunomide-treated patients' annualize
