Brian Abrahams, a Wells Fargo analyst, believes that Biogen (NASDAQ: BIIB) MS pill patents will be a positive boost for XenoPort (NASDAQ: XNPT).

Further patent applications could provide patent protection until 2032 for Biogen's BG-12, which should benefit XenoPort's '829 drug, an earlier stage derivative of BG-12, with added protection from generic competition.

BIIB is currently up 1.5 percent in pre-market trading, while XNPT is currently unchanged.
