Biogen Idec announced today that the results of their randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled Phase 3 trial of dexpramipexol in people living with ALS, known as the EMPOWER study, failed to demonstrate efficacy in its primary or key secondary endpoints.
Although Biogen Idec will be discontinuing development of dexpramipexole in ALS at this time, the company has indicated that it remains steadfast in its commitment to find a potential new treatment for ALS.
