NMSS Bulletin on Antegren

I just now saw the NMSS's bulletin regarding Antegren that was just posted on their website (dated 11-8-04).

Well, I have to say (for what it's worth), that I approve. I couldn't have worded it better myself for them (given their "leadership" role in MS). :wink:

They basically are doing what I said I was doing just a minute ago. Letting the FDA deal with it. HAH! ...

VLA-4 Antagonists (i.e. Antegren)

I think I'm becoming the "Michael Moore" of the pharmaceutical world. HAH! (As a side note, I'm from Flint, Michigan originally, also. Mike Moore graduated a year earlier than I did. He went to a different high school, but I remember him WELL! LOL Flint was not that large, and he used to come in and out of the law firm I used to work at up there years ago, too. Maybe it's just ...

Antegren study funding

From: http://www.wddty.co.uk/archive/e-news%2 ... 02003.html

Medicine in general—and the pharmaceutical industry in particular—live for the ‘next best thing’, the breakthrough discovery that will change the course of a disease.

Take, for instance, a monoclonal antibody drug called Antegren (natalizumab). Two studies that appear in the same issue of the prestigious New England Journal of Medicine show that Antegren can improve the quality of life for sufferers of acute Crohn’s disease, ...

Biogen Idec

Some of you may find this interesting.

In talking about Antegren, and pharmas, etc., I mentioned SEC filings. So........I took a quick look at SEC filings for Biogen Idec. This is ALL public record and can be found on their website, not to mention on the Securities and Exchange Commission website.

I'm going to highlight what I found a little "surprising" in a way. Not very "diversified" are they? That's a little risky in my ...

Biogen/Elan delay release of Phase III Antegren data

BIOGEN IDEC, ELAN TO DELAY RELEASE OF PHASE III ANTEGREN DATA UNTIL RECEIPT OF APPROVAL FROM FDA

This is probably not a major development. They are still on course to get it approved at the end of the year in the US. The article does mention that there is speculation that this might be a sign that an antegren/avonex combination study is not yielding desired results.

Early approval for Antegren

Can someone revisit and summarize what Antegren means to the MS community, listing the positive benefits and the potential downside and side effects?

There seems to be lot of new people onboard. Perhaps we all can share in some hope in the near future.
