Learn why AUBAGIO® (teriflunomide)
has been shown to be effective for
treating relapsing MS.
SEE THE RESULTS OF A CLINICAL TRIAL
We tested AUBAGIO on over 1,000 patients in a 2-year study. When compared to placebo AUBAGIO 14mg showed a significant improvement in the 3 measures of MS activity:
- Disability progression
- MRI brain lesions
In the same trial, when AUBAGIO 7mg was compared to placebo it showed a significant improvement in these 2 measures of MS activity:
- MRI brain lesions
KEY RESULTS FROM A 2-YEAR CLINICAL TRIAL:
AUBAGIO helps reduce relapses
|AUBAGIO 14mg showed a 31% reduction in MS relapses vs placebo||AUBAGIO 7mg showed a 31% reduction in MS relapses vs placebo|
Relapses are MS episodes that last at least 24 hours and usually get resolved over time. Relapses can affect many different functions (vision, sense of touch, walking, balance, etc). Which symptoms develop depends on where the attack affects the central nervous system (CNS).
AUBAGIO helps slow disability progression
|Patients on AUBAGIO 14mg were 30% less likely to have disability progression vs placebo||Patients on AUBAGIO 7mg were 24% less likely to have disability progression vs placebo. AUBAGIO 7mg did not demonstrate a significant positive effect on disease disability progression|
Over time, MS can make walking and other basic activities more and more difficult. This process is known as disability progression.
AUBAGIO helps reduce the number of lesions*
|AUBAGIO 14mg reduced the number of new brain lesions on MRI scans by 80% vs placebo||AUBAGIO 7mg reduced the number of new brain lesions on MRI scans by 57% vs placebo|
*Gd-enhancing T1 lesionsWhat are brain lesions?
Brain lesions are areas of inflammation and/or damage to the central nervous system (CNS), which includes the brain and spinal cord. They appear as spots on your MRI. Sometimes the disease is more or less severe than the number of spots on an MRI would suggest.
Do not take AUBAGIO if you have severe liver problems, are pregnant or are of childbearing potential and not using effective birth control, or are taking a medication called leflunomide.
