Central Nervous System
There can be many challenges - physical, financial and emotional - faced every day by people and their families living with diseases of the central nervous system.
Neurodegenerative conditions and movement disorders such as multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s Disease, Huntington’s Disease and Tardive Dyskinesia affect every aspect of life, with even the most mundane tasks requiring great courage and effort.
We are committed to studying and reasearching neurodegenerative disorders so that we can find molecules that allow us to change the course of disease. We are also focused on innovation to help patients safely and effectively manage pain, which can severely affect their quality of life.
We know that disorders of the central nervous system are a huge burden on the NHS and more needs to be done to improve the lives of people affected by these conditions and work towards their prevention and eradication.
We concentrate on supporting the NHS in managing long-term conditions like multiple sclerosis and Parkinson's disease. Our aim is to work in partnership to develop joined-up care through collaborative working partnerships, to improve patient outcomes and enhance patient experience, and also to offer value for money. That might be through medicines optimisation, quality improvement, pathway redesign or improvement, innovation or identifying cost efficiencies.
At a global level, Teva has several innovative branded medicines that treat disorders of the central nervous system, including conditions such as multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s Disease, Huntington’s Disease and Tardive Dyskinesia.
MS can be a challenging condition to live with but new treatments over the past 20 years have considerably improved the quality of life of people with the condition.
When a patient is diagnosed with MS, life as they knew it may be limited, but with the right attitude, medical guidance and support, MS can be managed. Teva provides additional patient support programmes for patients prescribed Teva medications for MS.
