Biogen and ABbbVie announced on March 2, 2018 the voluntary worldwide withdrawal of daclizumab (Zynbryta®) following an urgent review of eight cases of inflammatory encephalitis and meningoencephalitis under urgent review by the European Medicines Agency (EMA). 

Alfred Sandrook, MD, PhD, Executive Vice President and Chief Medical Director said “Biogen believes the voluntary worldwide withdrawal is in the best interest of patients.” The EMA has suggested that doctors should not start new patients on Zinbryta.

The companies and the regulatory authorities have said that patients currently on the drug should consult with their doctors as soon as possible, but to not stop taking the drug before discussing it with their physicians.
