Teva (TEVA) files a petition with the FDA requesting the agency task an outside panel to evaluate the safety of Biogen's (BIIB) multiple sclerosis drug, BG-12, before approval due to concerns over potential risks to the kidney. The drug is a potential competitor to TEVA's Copaxone, and if the request is granted, the drug's launch could be delayed.

    For those of us with MS waiting for alternatives to daily injections, this is bad news. Come on Drug Makers, it's not about the bank roll, it's about what's best for those with the disease!!!!
