Teva to Present New AJOVY® (fremanezumab) Analyses and Latest COPAXONE® Data (glatiramer acetate injection) at European Academy of Neurology Congress


Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd. (NYSE and TASE: TEVA) today announced that new data on AJOVY® (fremanezumab) and the burden of migraine in Europe will be presented at the 6th Congress of the European Academy of Neurology (EAN), being held virtually from 23-26 May 2020. Additionally, Teva will present data on the long-term safety and efficacy of COPAXONE® (glatiramer acetate injection). This year’s EAN congress is a virtual meeting due to the global coronavirus pandemic. All Teva abstracts will be published in a supplement to the European Journal of Neurology.

The new data, shared across nine ePresentations and three ePosters, reinforce the importance of continuing to study therapies that impact large patient populations. As the third-most prevalent disease in the world, affecting over one billion people globallyi, migraine imposes physical, emotional and societal burdens worldwideii,iii,iv,v,vi with limited treatment options available to many patients.

“Teva has a deep history in neurology and these data demonstrate our continued commitment to advancing solutions for patients with unmet needs,” said Matthias Mueller, MD MSc, VP Global Medical Affairs - Global Therapeutic Areas and Scientific Communications, Teva. “We look forward to presenting these new data, which include pooled results of our AJOVY Phase 3 trials and a 7-year evaluation of COPAXONE. We are proud of our ongoing efforts in evaluating the social impact and burden of migraine. It is critically important to understand the global impact of migraine and we are committed to collecting real-world data that can educate the broader healthcare population. We are also committed to evaluating treatment options for patients living with multiple sclerosis (MS), as demonstrated by our analysis of the long-term efficacy and safety of COPAXONE.”

The AJOVY data highlight data on safety, efficacy and quality-of-life for patients experiencing difficult-to-treat migraine as well as challenges posed by comorbidities and advancing age. The post-hoc analyses to be presented examine the data on AJOVY as reflected in the pooled analyses:

  • Efficacy and safety in patients of advanced age
  • Quality-of-life, productivity and satisfaction
  • Cardiovascular safety

across the FOCUS, HALO-episodic migraine (EM) and HALO-chronic migraine (CM) Phase 3 clinical trials.

Teva will host an online symposium “Pathways to Change: Anti-CGRP Monoclonal Antibodies & the Evolving Migraine Prevention Landscape,” on Sunday, 24 May from 13:45-14:45 CET. The symposium will be led by Messoud Ashina, Professor of Neurology in the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences, University of Copenhagen, Denmark, and will review the considerable burden of migraine from a patient perspective, discussing insights for targeted prevention that can be gained from the latest research on the neurovascular pathophysiology of migraine.

Approximately 2.5 million people live with multiple sclerosis (MS) worldwidevii, and relapsing-remitting is the most common MS disease courseviii. Teva will also share new long-term efficacy and safety results of COPAXONE from the 7-year Glatiramer Acetate Low‑Frequency Administration (GALA) open‑label extension study.

The complete list of Teva presentations to be available at the congress can be found below. All ePresentations and ePoster sessions will be recorded in advance and available through the EAN conference website. The sessions will be available at no cost and will also be on-demand for EAN members from 27 May onward.
