1 Teva Reinforces Focus on Advancing Multiple Sclerosis Treatment at 31 st ECTRIMS Congress JERUSALEM, October 6, 2015 Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd. (NYSE and TASE: TEVA) today announced that data on COPAXONE (glatiramer acetate injection), the most prescribed therapy for relapsing forms of multiple sclerosis (MS) globally, and laquinimod, an investigational therapy being evaluated in relapsing and progressive forms of MS, will be featured at the 31 st European Committee for Treatment and Research in Multiple Sclerosis (ECTRIMS) Congress in Barcelona, October 7-10, New COPAXONE data at this year s Congress underscore the safety and efficacy of the three-times-aweek treatment, as well as explore the decreased incidence of adverse events for COPAXONE 40 mg/ml patients, while laquinimod data focus on long-term measures such as disability progression, said Michael Hayden, M.D., Ph.D., President of Global R&D and Chief Scientific Officer at Teva. The data being presented emphasizes our dedication to better understanding the long-term benefit of COPAXONE and potential for laquinimod. Teva will host a booth, called Hope in the Code, for its personalized medicine program during this year s Congress. In addition, Teva will also host a Satellite Symposium, Discovering a New World in MS, on Thursday, October 8, 2015 from 19:15 20:15 CEST.

Knappertz, M.D. Davis, G. Giovannoni, G.R. Cutter, J.S. Wolinsky About COPAXONE COPAXONE (glatiramer acetate injection) is indicated for the treatment of patients with relapsing forms of multiple sclerosis. The most common side effects of COPAXONE are redness, pain, swelling, itching, or a lump at the site of injection, flushing, rash, shortness of breath, and chest pain. See additional important information at: For hardcopy releases, please see enclosed full prescribing information. The COPAXONE brand is approved in more than 50 countries worldwide, including the United States, Russia, Canada, Mexico, Australia, Israel, and all European countries. Important Safety Information about COPAXONE Patients allergic to glatiramer acetate or mannitol should not take COPAXONE. Some patients report a short-term reaction right after injecting COPAXONE. This reaction can involve flushing (feeling of warmth and/or redness), chest tightness or pain with heart palpitations, anxiety, and trouble breathing. These symptoms generally appear within minutes of an injection, last about 15 minutes, and go away by themselves without further problems. During the postmarketing period, there have been reports of patients with similar symptoms who received emergency medical care. If symptoms become severe, patients should call the emergency phone number in their area. Patients should call their doctor right away if they develop hives, skin rash with irritation, dizziness, sweating, chest pain, trouble breathing, or severe pain at the injection site. If any of the above occurs, patients should not give themselves any more injections until their doctor tells them to begin again. Chest pain may occur either as part of the immediate post injection reaction or on its own. This pain should only last a few minutes. Patients may experience more than one such episode, usually beginning at least one month after starting treatment. Patients should tell their doctor if they experience chest pain that lasts for a long time or feels very intense. A permanent indentation under the skin (lipoatrophy or, rarely, necrosis) at the injection site may occur, due to local destruction of fat tissue. Patients should follow proper injection technique and inform their doctor of any skin changes. The most common side effects of COPAXONE are redness, pain, swelling, itching, or a lump at the site of injection, flushing, rash, shortness of breath, and chest pain. These are not all of the possible side effects of COPAXONE. For a complete list, patients should ask their doctor or pharmacist. Patients should tell their doctor about any side effects they have while taking COPAXONE. Patients are encouraged to report negative side effects of prescription drugs to the FDA.

4 Laquinimod is a once-daily oral, investigational, CNS-active immunomodulator with a novel mechanism of action being developed for the treatment of relapsing-remitting MS (RRMS), progressive MS and Huntington s disease. The global, Phase III, clinical development program evaluating laquinimod in MS includes two completed pivotal studies, ALLEGRO and BRAVO (both 0.6mg/day). A third Phase III trial, CONCERTO, is currently ongoing and evaluating two doses of laquinimod (0.6mg and 1.2mg/day) in 2,199 patients for up to 24 months. The primary outcome measure is time to three-month confirmeddisability progression as measured by the Expanded Disability Status Scale (EDSS). In the ALLEGRO and BRAVO trials, adverse reactions observed included headache, abdominal pain, back and neck pain, appendicitis, and mild, asymptomatic laboratory abnormalities, including liver enzyme elevations, hematological changes and elevation of CRP or fibrinogen levels.
