When I was Diagnosed...


Stu's Views:   In 1998 when I was diagnosed there was only:  

Avonex, Betaseron, Copaxone  for Relapsing Remitting MS (RRMS)
and Novantrone 
        

Until late last week there were these (11) Disease Modifying Therapies 

        

















.
Of the above, Three being Orally taken
(7) Injections - with one being every other week (yay)
 and (1) infusion


With the recent FDA approval of Lemtrada (Alemtuzumab)
Learn about this new medication.
