 GlaxoSmithKline suspends drug trial after FDA ruling - The Boston Globe
LONDON -- European drugmaker GlaxoSmithKline PLC said yesterday it had suspended clinical trials of an experimental drug to treat multiple sclerosis and Crohn's disease, in line with a US regulator's ruling.
The US Food and Drug Administration this week called for a suspension of Glaxo's SB 683-699 because it is in the same class as the recently withdrawn Tysabri multiple sclerosis medication.
GlaxoSmithKline spokesman Chris Hunter-Ward said that while the Glaxo trial drug had the same molecular target -- to block a substance called alpha-4 integrin -- as the withdrawn Tysabri, it showed pharmacological distinctions.
