Recent Events

  • On October 18, Biogen Idec announced the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has extended the initial PDUFA date for its review of the New Drug Application (NDA) for the marketing approval of BG-12 (dimethyl fumarate), the company’s oral therapeutic candidate for the treatment of multiple sclerosis (MS). The three month extension is a standard extension period. The FDA has indicated that the extension of the PDUFA date is needed to allow additional time for review of the application. The agency did not ask for additional studies.
  • On October 10, Biogen Idec presented extensive data from the company’s leading MS franchise during the 28 th Congress of the European Committee for Treatment and Research in Multiple Sclerosis (ECTRIMS) in Lyon, France. Fifty-three poster and platform presentations further showcased Biogen Idec’s commitment to advancing the treatment of MS and improving the lives of people living with the disease around the world. Approved and investigational therapies in Biogen Idec’s MS franchise presented at the conference included BG-12, daclizumab-HYP, anti-LINGO, TYSABRI, AVONEX and FAMPYRA ® (prolonged-release fampridine tablets).

  • On September 19, Biogen Idec announced that the September 20, 2012 issue of the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) published detailed results from two pivotal clinical trials that evaluated oral BG-12 for the treatment of MS.
