Analyst available to comment on the market forecast for the drug
Andrea S. Witt, Ph.D., analyst at Decision Resources, is available to discuss the impact of the Food and Drug Administration's re-approval of Biogen Idec's Tysabri for the treatment of multiple sclerosis (MS).
The Food and Drug Administration today gave Biogen Idec the go-ahead to resume sales of Tysabri, the multiple sclerosis drug that was pulled off the market 16 months ago when patients in clinical trials developed unexpected side effects.
Dr. Witt can provide: * A new forecast for the drug over the next ten years based on primary market research with MS specialists in the United States and in Europe. Will patients and neurologists use a highly efficacious drug with rare lethal side effects? * Implications for the current therapies in the MS drug market, namely the interferon-betas and glatiramer acetate: will these drugs retain their market dominance over the next ten years now that Tysabri has been re-approved in the United States? * How will Tysabri fare in the MS market once oral therapies for the treatment of MS launch in the United States and in Europe?
