Sanofi Research Report

On June 28, 2013, Sanofi announced that its subsidiary, Genzyme, received a
positive opinion regarding the approval of LEMTRADA from the Committee for the
Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP) of the European Medicines Agency
(EMA). LEMTRADA (alemtuzumab) is under consideration for the treatment of
adult patients with relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS) with active
disease defined by clinical or imaging features. Sanofi reported that the CHMP
had also issued a positive opinion, in early 2013, on new active substance
designation (NAS) for AUBAGIO (teriflunomide). David Meeker, MD, President and
CEO of Genzyme, stated, "Today's CHMP opinions set the stage for the approval
of two important new treatment options for MS patients. Treatments to-date
have addressed some of the unmet needs in MS, but still have limitations."
Meeker continued, "Upon approval, physicians will have the ability to
prescribe LEMTRADA for appropriate relapsing remitting patients based on their
impressions of clinical or imaging characteristics regardless of duration of
disease or treatment history. Expectations among the MS community are high for
LEMTRADA and with today's positive CHMP opinion we are a step closer to making
this very innovative treatment available for MS patients in Europe." The Full
