Biogen Idec may impressing Wall Street with its new Tecfidera treatment for multiple sclerosis, but the drugmaker is not impressing regulators with some of its practices for manufacturing a pair of older treatments – Tysabri and Avonex. A recent inspection report issued by the FDA, which examined a facility last summer, noted that the drugmaker did not always challenge the validity of all testing results provided in certificates of analysis as part of qualification procedures. In other words, Biogen (BIIB) did not always ensure that active pharmaceutical ingredients were sterile, as suppliers claimed.
