Another Major Drug Approval for Regeneron

Congratulations to BCW member Regeneron on the approval of an important new drug to help patients with rheumatoid arthritis. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved the human antibody drug sarilumab, developed by Regeneron Pharmaceuticals Inc. in Westchester and its French pharmaceutical partner Sanofi and trademarked as Kevzara, to treat adult patients with moderately to severely active rheumatoid arthritis.

The FDA approval came less than two months after the federal agency approved Regeneron’s and Sanofi’s human antibody dupilumab, marketed as Dupixent, as the first biologic medicine used to treat the debilitating itching and widespread rashes afflicting adults with moderate to severe cases of atopic dermatitis.
