Merck’s cladribine tablets are now just one step away from obtaining European Union approval as a relapsing multiple sclerosis treatment.
The European Medicines Agency’s Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use has recommended that the European Commission approve the tablets.
“The positive opinion from the CHMP [the committee] is an extraordinary development for our company, affirming our belief in cladribine tablets as a potential important treatment option for patients living with multiple sclerosis,” Belén Garijo, a Merck board member, said in a press release.
“We now eagerly await the European Commission decision, and the opportunity to make a difference in the MS treatment paradigm,” he said. “Our sincerest thanks to the entire MS community for their unwavering support throughout the cladribine tablets journey.”
