The FDA’s Peripheral and Central Nervous System Drugs advisory committee will discuss the merits of Biogen and Ionis’s ALS candidate tofersen on March 22nd.

Ionis Pharmaceuticals Inc. announced that the European Medicines Agency (EMA) has accepted the marketing authorization application (MAA) for review of tofersen, an investigational medicine for the treatment of superoxide dismutase 1 (SOD1) amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). SOD1-ALS is a progressive and uniformly fatal disease that affects fewer than 1,000 people across Europe.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has extended the review of Biogen Inc.’s (BIIB.O) experimental treatment for an inherited form of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) by three months, the company said on Monday.

Longer-term use and early initiation of Biogen Inc.’s experimental treatment for an inherited form of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) was effective in slowing disease progression, according to a new analysis by the company published on Wednesday.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has agreed to review Biogen Inc.’s experimental treatment for an inherited form of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), after the therapy failed a late-stage study but showed promise in some patients.
