Teva/Proneuron lawsuit question

Postby Lars » Sat Jan 03, 2009 10:25 am

I am not on Copaxone but some newly diagnosed members of my local group are starting it. I was forwarded the following link which I'm sure most of you have seen but it is dated a year ago and I'm wondering if anyone has current info regarding it. The apparent crux of the article is Tevas prescribed dosage and the argument by Proneuron that smaller doses are sufficient. Any takers?

Hey Lars...
Here's an article with the history of the conflict. Pretty complex... Proneuron and Teva are co-licensors of Copaxone. Looks like proneuron wanted to test copax. in other neurodegenerative diseases and obtained a license from Yeda (copax creator), but that would mean teva would lose their exclusive license and some $$$. proneuron claims teva intentionally sabotaged a trial in ALS, so they could keep copax profits for MS alone.

Nothing about teva withholding info on lower dosages of copax for MS- the lower doses proneuron refers to were trial "vaccines" of copax for ALS and other neurological conditions.

Drug companies. Don't get me started, Lars. Wish their family members had MS...maybe then they'd give a damn. That said, Copaxone has been good for Jeff (as far as we know.)

Hope you're well.
