TORONTO – Edmonton’s University of Alberta is lending its neuromotor research smarts to a wearable, machine learning driven sensors platform developed by Menlo Park, Calif., and Calgary, Alberta-based Protxx Inc. for better managing the future care of patients suffering from neurodegenerative conditions such as multiple sclerosis (MS).
San Diego-based Autobahn Therapeutics Inc.’s $76 million series B round will let the firm advance lead candidate ABX-002, a thyroid hormone receptor beta agonist therapy for multiple sclerosis and adrenomyeloneuropathy, a rare genetic disorder, plus a portfolio of central nervous system programs that leverage the company’s brain-targeting chemistry platform.
Novartis AG didn’t say why the FDA has put off action until September – a delay of three months – on the sBLA for multiple sclerosis (MS) prospect Arzerra (ofatumumab, OMB-157), first cleared in October 2009 for chronic lymphocytic leukemia, but the holdup brought renewed attention to the bustling space, and Immunic Inc. – which held its R&D Day on May 27 – is coming on strong.
Barely a day after its PDUFA date, despite the unfolding COVID-19 pandemic, the FDA has approved Bristol Myers Squibb Co.'s immunomodulator, ozanimod, an oral treatment for adults with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (MS) and active secondary progressive disease branded as Zeposia. The win, a much-anticipated milestone precipitated by the company’s multibillion-dollar acquisition of ozanimod developer Celgene Corp. in November 2019, gives patients a new treatment option amid a growing field of therapies for MS.

In a second phase III trial for treating progressive forms of multiple sclerosis (MS), designed to confirm the successful first trial, Medday Pharmaceuticals SA’s investigational MD-1003 failed to hit its primary and secondary endpoints.
At 26 years old, Karen Jury stood before a class of elementary students as her right arm tingled before falling completely numb. That led to a conversation with her doctor. Years of migraine headaches and a recurring sensation of shock waves throughout her body, simply from the turn of her head, resulted in a scheduled spinal tap and an MRI. She received a diagnosis of Arnold-Chiari malformation, a structural defect in the base of the skull and cerebellum.
Sanofi SA said an investigational Bruton's tyrosine kinase (BTK) inhibitor it licensed from Principia Biopharma Inc. in 2017 significantly reduced disease activity associated with multiple sclerosis (MS) as measured by magnetic resonance imaging, meeting the trial's primary endpoint.
What’s new inevitably includes an element of the old. Clene Nanomedicine Inc., which just completed enrollment and dosed the first patient in its phase II trial in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), literally contains an element of the old in its lead nanocatalytic therapy: gold.
Digital therapeutics have made great strides in recent years, with Pear Therapeutics Inc. playing a key role. Now, the company has reported the dosing of the first patient in part two of a study assessing Pear-006 to address depressive symptoms in multiple sclerosis (MS).
