Teva to Present Data Highlighting SD-809 at 20th International Congress of Parkinson’s Disease and Movement Disorders

Data in Huntington Disease, Tardive Dyskinesia and Tourette Syndrome to Be Presented

Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd. (NYSE and TASE: TEVA) today announced new data for SD-809 (deutetrabenazine) tablets will be presented at the 20th International Congress of Parkinson’s Disease and Movement Disorders (MDS) in Berlin, June 19-23, 2016.

Teva-sponsored data evaluating SD-809 in patients with chorea associated with Huntington disease, tardive dyskinesia and tics associated with Tourette syndrome will be highlighted in clinical, preclinical and health economics data poster presentations. In addition, Teva will host a Corporate Symposium entitled, “Emerging Technologies and Therapies in Movement Disorders,” on Thursday, June 23, 2016 from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. CEST.

“There is a significant unmet medical need, as limited options are currently available for the treatment of neurological disorders such as Huntington disease, tardive dyskinesia and Tourette syndrome,” said Michael Hayden, MD, PhD, President of Global R&D and Chief Scientific Officer at Teva. “Data planned for presentation at this year’s MDS Congress demonstrates Teva’s commitment to research and helping improve the lives of patients and caregivers in these severely underserved patient communities.”
