Teva’s Dedication and Commitment Recognized by Patients

Moreover, patients noted our dedication to the continued development of CNS-focused treatments and our patient support programs as a part of our Specialty CNS business. In addition, the patient groups praised Teva’s many generic offerings in the neurological therapy area.
“We are honored to be recognized by neurological patient groups who do such important work on behalf of those they support around the world. At Teva, our focus on CNS (including multiple sclerosis, neurodegenerative diseases, pain and migraine) is at the core of what we do, and we are committed to the continued development of safe and effective treatments, innovative technologies and comprehensive support programs that address the unmet needs of those who live with debilitating neurological diseases,” said Mike Derkacz, Senior Vice President and Head of Global CNS, Teva.
Where Patient Groups Focus
According to the PatientView report, Teva is ranked at the top for continuing development of CNS-focused treatments, patient safety and transparency, and our patient support programs as a part of our Specialty CNS business. In addition, fair pricing and the high quality of our generics portfolio contributed to this ranking.
