Biogen-Idec's BG-12 Shines At the Top of the Charts in the Treatment of Relapsing-Remitting Multiple Sclerosis
Date:11/4/2011

rate (ARR) by 44 percent for BID (p< 0.0001) and by 51 percent for TID (p< 0.0001) versus placebo at two years.  Biogen-Idec announced the results of the CONFIRM trial only days after it presented detailed data of the DEFINE study at the 5th Joint Triennial Congress of the European and Americas Committees on Treatment and Research in Multiple Sclerosis (ECTRIMS and ACTRIMS) in October 2011.   In fact, results from the CONFIRM study showed that BG-12 beats Teva's Copaxone, which reduced the ARR by only 29 percent (p< 0.02) compared with placebo at two years.

With two robust and positive pivotal clinical trials that exposed BG-12 to over 2,600 patients, the drug is well positioned as a top MS therapy of choice and a formidable competitor to Gilenya from Novartis, which gained FDA approval in September 2010.
