About BG-12 - Possibly the Next Oral MS medication


About BG-12
BG-12 (dimethyl fumarate) is an investigational oral therapy in late-stage clinical development for the treatment of RRMS, the most common form of MS. BG-12 is the only compound in clinical trials for the treatment of MS known to activate the Nrf-2 pathway. Research suggests that BG-12 has the potential to reduce the activity and impact of inflammatory cells on the Central Nervous System (CNS) and induce direct cytoprotective responses in CNS cells. These effects may enhance the CNS cells' ability to mitigate the toxic inflammatory and oxidative stress that plays a role in MS pathophysiology.
Top-line data from the second Phase 3 trial of BG-12, CONFIRM, is anticipated in the second half of 2011.
