Surveyed U.S. Neurologists Report Greater Overall Satisfaction with Tecfidera than with Platform Injectables and Other Oral Multiple Sclerosis Therapies
Date:9/24/2013

EXTON, Pa., Sept. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- BioTrends Research Group, one of the world's leading research and advisory firms for specialized biopharmaceutical issues, finds that surveyed U.S. neurologists report significantly greater overall physician satisfaction with Biogen Idec's recently-launched oral disease-modifying therapy (DMT) Tecfidera than with most other DMTs approved for the treatment of relapsing forms of multiple sclerosis (MS). These other agents include platform injectables such as interferon-beta therapies and Teva's Copaxone, as well as other oral DMTs—Aubagio from Genzyme (a Sanofi company) and Novartis's Gilenya. This finding likely reflects respondents' high rating of Tecfidera on several key performance attributes in the areas of efficacy and patient benefits compared with other approved agents. Nevertheless, Copaxone—the current patient share leader among respondents' DMT-treated MS patients—still ranks as respondents' most preferred brand for the treatment of relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (RR-MS), a perception driven by the drug's long-term safety and tolerability/side effect profile.

The recently published TreatmentTrends: Multiple Sclerosis Q3 2013 (US) report also finds that, if only two late-stage emerging products were to launch for the treatment of MS (out of six products assessed), more than 45 percent of surveyed neurologists select Teva's Copaxone 40 mg three-times-weekly (3TW) and Genzyme/Bayer HealthCare's Lemtrada as bringing the most value to treatment; slightly fewer also chose Teva/Active Biotech's laquinimod. Data show that neurologists' self-reported familiarity with the product and its predecessor drives the perceived valu
