Bayer Offers New Betaferon(R) Titration Pack
29 Mar 2009 -
Bayer will launch a titration pack for patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) that is specially designed to make it easier for them to start Betaferon® (interferon beta-1b) therapy. From now on, the titration pack will be available in Germany. More European countries will follow in 2009. The four-week pack facilitates a gradual increase in dose as recommended for patients new on Betaferon®.
Betaferon® is a well-established therapy for people starting their MS treatment as early as after the first signs of the condition. Findings from the recent landmark BENEFIT (BEtaferon in Newly Emerging multiple sclerosis For Initial Treatment) trial have shown that gradual dose titration of the medication contributes to a high acceptance of Betaferon® treatment from the start. Delivering Betaferon® in an easy-to-use titration pack for the first four weeks of therapy will simplify the titration process for physicians, MS-nurses and patients.
