Name: Multiple sclerosis and related disorders
Natalizumab, a monoclonal antibody directed against alpha-4-integrin, is an efficacious treatment used in Multiple Sclerosis (MS). Use in early pregnancy is safe but information in the third trimester...
Natalizumab (NTZ) is widely used for highly active relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (MS). Inflammatory disease activity often returns after NTZ treatment discontinuation. We aimed to identify pr...
Natalizumab (NTZ) is a humanized monoclonal antibody used in the treatment of relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis. Although NTZ is usually well-tolerated, infusion-related reactions (IRRs) may occu...
One of the most dreaded complications in Multiple Sclerosis (MS) patients treated with natalizumab is the appearance of the Progressive Multifocal Leukoencephalopathy (PML). A 54-year-old Mexican woma...
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a degenerative neurological disorder. Treatment aims to avoid relapses and disability progression. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the cost-effectiveness of natali...
A prospective clinical trial with the aim of maintaining drug efficacy of natalizumab while extending dose intervals guided by drug concentrations in patients with relapsing remitting mult...
The purpose of this study is to determine if natalizumab in combination with AVONEX is safe and effective in delaying progression of individuals diagnosed with relapsing remitting Multiple...
The purpose of this study it to evaluate the safety of natalizumab monotherapy following re-exposure to natalizumab (during the first 48 weeks) and assess the long-term efficacy of nataliz...
The purpose of this study is to explore alternative routes of administration for natalizumab.
The purpose of this study is to study safety and efficacy of natalizumab treatment of primary and secondary progressive multiple sclerosis. This will be done by measuring the effect of tr...
A humanized monoclonal immunoglobulin G4 antibody to human INTEGRIN ALPHA4 that binds to the alpha4 subunit of INTEGRIN ALPHA4BETA1 and integrin alpha4beta7. It is used as an IMMUNOLOGIC FACTOR in the treatment of RELAPSING-REMITTING MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS and CROHN'S DISEASE.
A form of multiple sclerosis characterized by a progressive deterioration in neurologic function which is in contrast to the more typical relapsing remitting form. If the clinical course is free of distinct remissions, it is referred to as primary progressive multiple sclerosis. When the progressive decline is punctuated by acute exacerbations, it is referred to as progressive relapsing multiple sclerosis. The term secondary progressive multiple sclerosis is used when relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis evolves into the chronic progressive form. (From Ann Neurol 1994;36 Suppl:S73-S79; Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp903-914)
A non-glycosylated form of interferon beta-1 that has a serine at position 17. It is used in the treatment of both RELAPSING-REMITTING MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS and CHRONIC PROGRESSIVE MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS.
An autoimmune disorder mainly affecting young adults and characterized by destruction of myelin in the central nervous system. Pathologic findings include multiple sharply demarcated areas of demyelination throughout the white matter of the central nervous system. Clinical manifestations include visual loss, extra-ocular movement disorders, paresthesias, loss of sensation, weakness, dysarthria, spasticity, ataxia, and bladder dysfunction. The usual pattern is one of recurrent attacks followed by partial recovery (see MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS, RELAPSING-REMITTING), but acute fulminating and chronic progressive forms (see MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS, CHRONIC PROGRESSIVE) also occur. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p903)
A fumarate derivative that is used as a DERMATOLOGIC AGENT in the treatment of PSORIASIS and SKIN DISEASES. It also may be used as an IMMUNOSUPPRESSIVE AGENT in the treatment of MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS.
Multiple Sclerosis MS
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is the most common disabling neurological condition affecting 100,000 young adults in the UK. The condition results from autoimmune damage to myelin, causing interference in nerve signaling. Symptoms experienced depend on the pa...
