The European Medicines Agency said on Friday its experts had endorsed Zinbryta, or daclizumab, for the treatment of relapsing forms of multiple sclerosis (MS), adding a new option to a range of modern MS therapies.
The positive opinion will now be referred to the European Commission, which normally grants marketing authorisations for medicines recommended by the agency within a couple of months.
The self-administered, under-the-skin injection is also currently being reviewed by regulators in the United States, Switzerland, Canada and Australia. (Reporting by Ben Hirschler; Editing by Mark Potter)
