Teriflunomide Pill Reduces Relapses

In a clinical trial involving 1,169 people with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis, oral teriflunomide (Genzyme/Sanofi-Aventis) reduced relapses compared with placebo over at least 48 weeks, according to a company press release dated June 1, 2012. Of two different doses tested during the TOWER trial, the higher dose also slowed progression of disability. This is the third completed of five phase III studies involving teriflunomide in multiple sclerosis. An application for marketing approval of teriflunomide was accepted for review by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in October 2011.
