Stocks in this article: BIIB

Biogen Idec (NASDAQ: BIIB) will present more than 50 company-sponsored platform and poster presentations on data supporting its multiple-marketed and pipeline therapies for neurological diseases at the 65 th American Academy of Neurology (AAN) Annual Meeting in San Diego, March 16-23, 2013. The breadth of data presented demonstrates Biogen Idec’s robust neurology research and development programs, and affirms the company’s decades-long leadership in multiple sclerosis (MS).

“Biogen Idec is dedicated to addressing unmet medical needs of people living with neurological diseases through innovative science,” said Douglas E. Williams, Ph.D., executive vice president, Research and Development at Biogen Idec. “We are proud to have the deepest MS pipeline in the industry, supplied by a strong R&D neurology program. We will continue to focus on improving the lives of patients through novel scientific discovery, as well as by providing first-in-class treatments, unsurpassed patient support and educational services.”

Highlights include data on Biogen Idec’s currently marketed products, TYSABRI® (natalizumab), AVONEX® (interferon beta-1a) and FAMPYRA® (prolonged-release fampridine tablets). The company will also present results from the investigational trials of its late-stage MS pipeline, including TECFIDERA™ (dimethyl fumarate), peginterferon beta-1a and daclizumab high-yield process (DAC HYP).

As part of the company’s overall commitment to improving the lives of people living with neurological diseases through education and support, Biogen Idec is proud to be a sponsor of the American Brain Foundation’s 2013 Brain Health Fair, a day-long event that will take place on Saturday, March 16, 2013 in San Diego, CA. This event connects thousands of patients, families and caregivers affected by a brain disease. The Brain Health Fair will provide health screenings, educational activities for kids and teens, as well as “Brain Health Classes,” led by expert neurologists. Registration is free at BrainHealthFair.com.
