Share

Celgene Corporation (NASDAQ:CELG) today announced it will present 13 scientific abstracts, including new analyses from the Phase 3 ozanimod clinical development program in adults with relapsing forms of multiple sclerosis (RMS), at the 35th Congress of the European Committee for Treatment and Research in Multiple Sclerosis (ECTRIMS) in Stockholm, September 11-13, 2019. Ozanimod is an investigational oral, sphingosine 1-phosphate (S1P) receptor modulator that binds with high affinity selectively to S1P subtypes 1 (S1P1) and 5 (S1P5).

“Celgene is committed to furthering our understanding of multiple sclerosis (MS) and the full potential of ozanimod,” said Terrie Curran, President, Global Inflammation and Immunology, Celgene. “We look forward to sharing these new analyses with the MS community, including data on the long-term efficacy and safety of ozanimod in adults with relapsing forms of MS.”

Ozanimod is an investigational compound that is not approved for any use in any country.

About Ozanimod

Ozanimod is an investigational oral, sphingosine 1-phosphate (S1P) receptor modulator that binds with high affinity selectively to S1P subtypes 1 (S1P1) and 5 (S1P5). Ozanimod causes lymphocyte retention in lymphoid tissues. The mechanism by which ozanimod exerts therapeutic effects in multiple sclerosis is unknown, but may involve the reduction of lymphocyte migration into the central nervous system.

Ozanimod is in development for immune-inflammatory indications including RMS, ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease.

About Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a disease in which the immune system attacks the protective myelin sheath that covers the nerves. The myelin damage disrupts communication between the brain and the rest of the body. Ultimately, the nerves themselves may deteriorate — a process that's currently irreversible. Signs and symptoms vary widely, depending on the amount of damage and the nerves affected. Some people living with MS may lose the ability to walk independently, while others experience long periods of remission during which they develop no new symptoms. MS affects approximately 400,000 people in the U.S. and approximately 2.5 million people worldwide.

RMS is characterized by clearly defined attacks of worsening neurologic function. These attacks — often called relapses, flare-ups or exacerbations — are followed by partial or complete recovery periods (remissions), during which symptoms improve partially or completely with no apparent progression of disease. RMS is the most common disease course at the time of diagnosis. Approximately 85 percent of patients are initially diagnosed with RMS, compared with 10-15 percent with more progressive forms of the disease.
