Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd., a leading global pharmaceutical company that delivers high-quality, patient-centric healthcare solutions to millions of patients every day, recently announced the approval of a Marketing Authorization license (MA) by the Russian Ministry of Health for three-times-per-week COPAXONE®(glatiramer acetate injection) 40 mg/mL, a new dose of COPAXONE®, to treat patients with a diagnosis of relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS). This new COPAXONE® formulation will reduce the frequency of dose regimen for RRMS patients in Russia.
“For more than 20 years, Teva has been committed to safe and tolerable treatments options for patients with multiple sclerosis. The availability of three-times-a-week COPAXONE® 40 mg/mL is a significant advancement for the multiple sclerosis patient community in Russia,”said Rob Koremans, MD, President and CEO of Global Specialty Medicines at Teva in a pressrelease. “The new three-times-a-week COPAXONE® 40 mg/mL is the same therapy that patients and physicians know and trust with almost 60 percent fewer injections per year compared to the current daily COPAXONE® 20 mg/mL formulation. In the U.S., for example, more than 70 percent of patients currently receiving glatiramer acetate treatment are receiving the COPAXONE® 40 mg/mL formulation.”
