As of the present time, there is no known cure to Multiple sclerosis which has baffled experts ever since its emergence. However, that could possibly change in no time as two of the well-known pharmaceutical giants, Sanofi and ImmuNext have recently announced that they have finally come up to an agreement to develop an antibody with the potential to treat a series of autoimmune diseases, including multiple sclerosis (MS) and lupus. The two companies revealingly said that they are currently planning to launch a research collaboration that will allegedly support clinical testing of the drug that will hopefully shed light to the mysterious disease that continues to affect millions of people globally.

According to reports revealed by BioPharma Dive, the said agreement would be able to grant Sanofi with exclusive worldwide manufacturing and marketing rights to ImmuNext's preclinical drug INX-021, a monoclonal antibody that is known to calm a cellular pathway for a protein called CD40L or CD154. Experts believe that the protein has the ability to regulate the immune response and contribute to autoimmune diseases and chronic inflammation if by any chance that it becomes hyperactive.
