08:06 EDTSNYGenzymeís Lemtrada approved in Brazil for MS treatment
Genzyme, a Sanofi company, announced that Brazilís national health surveillance agency, ANVISA, has approved Lemtrada for the treatment of patients with relapsing forms of multiple sclerosis. The approval in Brazil follows the recent approvals of Lemtrada in Mexico, Canada, Australia and the European Union. Lemtrada is currently not approved in the U.S. The Lemtrada clinical development program included two randomized Phase III studies comparing treatment with Lemtrada to high-dose subcutaneous interferon beta-1a in patients with RRMS who had active disease and were either new to treatment or who had relapsed while on prior therapy. In CARE-MS I, Lemtrada was more effective than interferon beta-1a at reducing annualized relapse rates. In CARE-MS II, Lemtrada was significantly more effective than interferon beta-1a at reducing annualized relapse rates, and accumulation of disability was significantly slowed in patients given Lemtrada vs. interferon beta-1a. The most common side effects of Lemtrada are infusion associated reactions, infections, lymphopenia and leukopenia. Autoimmune conditions and serious infections can occur in patients receiving Lemtrada.
