In 2003, Biogen merged with San Diego, California -based IDEC Pharmaceuticals (formed in 1986 by biotech pioneers Ivor Royston , Howard Birndorf and Robert E. Sobol) and adopted the name Biogen Idec. After the merger, Biogen Idec became the 3rd largest Biotechnology company in the world.  Following shifts in research core areas, the company has since shortened its name, reverting to simply Biogen.  Biogen stock is a component of several stock indices such as the S&P 100 , S&P 500 , S&P 1500 , and NASDAQ-100 and the company is listed on the NASDAQ stock exchange under the ticker symbol, BIIB. 
HEAR HEAR!!!! I Second this comment!!!
My thoughts exactly…a society is measured by how it treats its ‘lowest’ class citizens,. criminals/addicts/homeless…and WOMEN….for this reason only is it socially ‘acceptable’ for this terrorist group to be named Isis. The history and force that the name Isis embodies is sacred to human history and the evolution of values for all mankind. If the acronym for the terrorists had somehow spelled,’real man’ ,I guarantee it would not have caught on in the media and been promoted as Isis has been. It is an unfortunate coincidence that the initials of Iraq, Syria, spell ‘IS ‘ but see the last county is actually Lybia and the proper name was ISIL….so the fact that the powers that be have promoted the name ISIS related to terrorism so much is totally a biased and prejudicial gouge at women. The government and media need to care more about the label now associated with the name ISIS. As far as I can tell allowing them to get media coverage by the name ISIS is an act of terrorism itself. Every time terrorists are referred to by that name it degrades society a little more.
