Mid 2012 I was told BG12 was scheduled for release in February 2013.
I've searched and can't find any current articles with release information.
Any answers? I'm desperately awaiting this therapy...
According to the linked story, "An FDA advisory panel has until March 28 to decide whether BG-12 meets safety standards that would permit the drug to hit the market." So I would figure the drug is still at least three months from market.
Also, a few days ago the Biogen CEO "...expects BG12 -- its oral medication for MS -- to receive FDA approval as early as March." I would suspect he is predicting toward the optimistic side to comfort shareholders.
Hi - just had a thought. Why don't you sign up for one of Biogen/ Active Source seminars? Active Source IS Biogen, right? Anyway they are having one here in Bridgewater, NJ on 2/7 entitled "Learn about the Benefits and Risks of a Treatment Option for Relapsing for Relapsing MS" I'm sure they could answer any ?s you would have. Get on their mailing list---866-955-9999 or www.MSActiveSourceEvents.com All free and usually includes a nice meal.
Just an idea!
