(Nasdaq: BIIB) today announced positive topline results from EVOLVE-MS-2, a large, randomized, double-blind, five-week, Phase 3 study of diroximel fumarate
, an investigational, novel oral fumarate
with a distinct chemical structure, for relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS), compared to TECFIDERA[R] (dimethyl fumarate
was statistically superior to dimethyl fumarate
on the study's pre-specified primary endpoint, with patients treated with diroximel fumarate
self-reporting significantly fewer days of key gastrointestinal (GI) symptoms with intensity scores 2 on the Individual Gastrointestinal Symptom and Impact Scale (IGISIS), as compared to dimethyl fumarate
[ClickPress, Tue Jul 09 2019] The diisostearyl fumarate
market is primarily driven by the rising adoption of cosmetic products by millennial and trends in skin care, hair care, and cosmetics globally.
The approval was based on positive results from the Phase III KRONOS trial in which Breztri Aerosphere demonstrated a statistically-significant improvement in trough forced expiratory volume in one second (FEV1), the primary endpoint for Japan, compared with the dual comparators Bevespi Aerosphere (glycopyrronium/formoterol fumarate
) and PT009 (budesonide/formoterol fumarate
In this study, standard samples of ferrous fumarate
and gluconate were measured using Mossbauer spectroscopy.
First introduced in the 1950s because it was thought that psoriasis was caused by a biochemical defect of the citric acid (Krebs) cycle, evidence suggests that it has nothing to do with the Krebs cycle, and the major active compound appears to be dimethyl fumarate
. The running hypothesis is that dimethyl fumarate
works by correcting the immunologic imbalance in psoriasis (shifting from a Th1/TH17 pattern of immune response to a Th2 one).
Compared to formulations containing tenofovir disoproxil fumarate
, the newer tenofovir alafenamide formulation achieves higher intracellular levels in CD4 lymphocytes (but not in renal tubular cells).
The FDA also has granted the long-acting beta-2 agonist formoterol fumarate
tentative approval for use as monotherapy.
She first heard about dimethyl fumarate
at an outpatient appointment at the RVI, where her consultant mentioned that the treatment was being tested.
Researchers found that the periodontal biofilm depended for growth on the availability of iron and heme (an iron-containing molecule related to hemoglobin), and that restricting these reduced levels of the enzyme, fumarate
In March, oral Tecfidera[TM] (dimethyl fumarate
, Biogen Idec--formerly "BG-12") joined the ranks of first-line, disease-modifying therapies approved by the U.S.
, chemically known as 4-(1-methyl-4piperidylidene)-4h-benzo [4,5] cyclohepta [1,2-b] thiophen-10(9h)-one hydrogen fumarate
(Figure 2), is cycloheptathiophene blocker of histamine h-1 receptors used as an antiallergic and an antiasthmatic drug .
