Surveyed U.S. and European Neurologists Agree that a Therapy's Effect on Physical Disability is the Most Important Attribute Influencing Prescribing Decisions in Secondary-Progressive Multiple Sclerosis
Date:3/20/2013

BURLINGTON, Mass., March 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Decision Resources, one of the world's leading research and advisory firms for pharmaceutical and healthcare issues, finds that surveyed U.S. and European neurologists agree that a therapy's effect on physical disability is the most influential attribute when making prescribing decisions for secondary-progressive multiple sclerosis (SP-MS)*. These same neurologists cite a therapy's effect on quality of life as the second-most important attribute, ahead of an effect on relapses, imaging metrics and other functional domains.

Current management of SP-MS relies on the use of mainline disease-modifying therapies (which include interferon-betas and Teva's Copaxone), most of which are approved broadly for the treatment of relapsing forms of MS. This category encompasses relapsing-remitting MS (RR-MS) and SP-MS patients who continue to experience relapses. Interviewed thought leaders suggest that, based on data in RR-MS, Genzyme/Sanofi/Bayer HealthCare's Lemtrada may offer advantages over sales-leading Copaxone on measures of physical disability—potentially translating into clinical benefits for SP-MS patients. 

"The neurologists we surveyed indicate that an improved effect on physical disability is one of the greatest unmet needs in SP-MS," said Decision Resources Analyst Georgiana L. Kuhlmann , S.M. "Drawing on clinical data from RR-MS trials, interviewed thought leaders indicate that Lemtrada has demonstrated the potential to partially fulfill this unmet need."
