Sanofi-Aventis’ Teriflunomide Comes Up Trumps in Two-Year Phase III MS Trial ....

Sanofi-aventis reported positive two-year data from a Phase III trial with its oral disease-modifying multiple sclerosis (MS) drug teriflunomide. Results from the international thousand-patient TEMSO study showed that both evaluated doses of teriflunomide reduced the annualized MS relapse rate by 31% in comparison with placebo. The 14 mg and 7 mg teriflunomide doses resulted in a reduction in the risk of disability progression by 30% and 24%, respectively, when compared with placebo.
