New Data Suggests Progression of Disability at Two Years Predicts Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Disability Progression at Eight Years
Date:10/12/2007

hree times as many progressed to an EDSS of greater than or

equal to 6.0 (67% sustained, versus 24% unsustained)

"This new analysis presents further evidence that patients who are treated for two years achieve long-term, clinically significant disability benefits," said Dr. Richard Rudick, vice-chairman of Neurological Institute at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation. "For a person with RRMS, starting and staying with treatment slows disability progression, as measured by EDSS."

EDSS is a common disability outcome measure that is used in multiple sclerosis clinical trials. EDSS greater than or equal to 4.0 signifies relatively severe disability, such as impacting physical coordination or the ability to walk without assistance.

AVONEX is the number one prescribed treatment for relapsing forms of multiple sclerosis (MS) worldwide, and is the only once-a-week MS therapy that is effective after the first attack. AVONEX is also proven to slow the progression of physical disability (as shown by 37% reduction over two years) and reduce the number of relapses. AVONEX has been proven effective in clinical trials for up to three years.

This study was funded by Biogen Idec.

About AVONEX

AVONEX is the number one most prescribed treatment for relapsing forms of MS worldwide, with more than 130,000 patients on therapy. It was launched in the U.S. in 1996 and later in Europe for the treatment of relapsing forms of MS to slow the progression of disability and reduce relapses. AVONEX has been proven effective in clinical trials for up to three years. AVONEX is marketed internationally in more than 90 countries. AVONEX was the first treatment approved for patients who have their first clinical MS attack and have a brain MRI scan consistent with MS; this use was approved in Europe in 2002 and in the U.S. in 2003.

The most common side effects associated with AVONEX multiple sclerosis treatment are flu-like symptoms, including myalgia, f
