“Rebooting” MS Drug Succeeds In Trials

“Rebooting” MS Drug Succeeds In Trials

Two phase 3 trials of a drug for treating multiple sclerosis (MS) that “reboots” the immune system showed it to be effective in patients who had not responded to first-line therapy: it reduced risk of disability and brain shrinkage. Reporting in the 1 November issue of The Lancet, the researchers describe how alemtuzumab (known commercially as Lemtrada), previously used to treat a type of leukaemia, was able to help people with early MS who relapsed on previous treatments as well as patients who had not yet received any treatment.
