Biogen Idec Inc. (NASDAQ: BIIB) and its partner Swedish Orphan Biovitrum released positive results for Eloctate, an experimental hemophilia A drug. The companies said in a statement that in a late-stage study, the blood-clotting drug "was generally well-tolerated, and no inhibitors (interfering antibodies) were detected.” Blood in patients with the genetic disorder has little ability to clot which can lead to excessive, sometimes fatal, bleeding when the skin is cut.

Biogen Idec Inc. discovers, develops, manufactures, and markets therapies for the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases, hemophilia, and autoimmune disorders in the United States and internationally. Its marketed products include AVONEX for the treatment of relapsing multiple sclerosis (MS); TYSABRI to treat relapsing MS; RITUXAN for treating relapsed or refractory, CD20-positive, and B-cell Non-Hodgkins lymphoma (NHL); FUMADERM for the treatment of severe plaque psoriasis in adult patients; and FAMPYRA, an oral compound for the improvement of walking in adult patients with MS with walking disability.
