Jerusalem, Israel and Lund, Sweden, June 12(th), 2013 - Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd. (NYSE: TEVA) and Active Biotech (NASDAQ OMX NORDIC: ACTI) announced today the results of a Phase IIa study of oral laquinimod designed to assess safety, tolerability and clinical efficacy in patients with active lupus nephritis, one of the most serious manifestations of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE or lupus)that can lead to chronic kidney failure(1). Treatment with laquinimod provided an additive effect in improving renal function when combined with current standard of care for active lupus nephritis (mycophenolate mofetil and corticosteroids), compared with standard of care alone. The data will be presented during the European League Against Rheumatism (EULAR) Annual European Congress of Rheumatology in Madrid, 12-15 June, 2013 as part of the late-breaking news session.
