The primary study objective is to test the superiority of DAC HYP compared to IFN β-1a in preventing MS relapse in subjects with Relapsing Remitting Multiple Sclerosis.
The secondary study objectives are to test the superiority of DAC HYP compared to IFN β-1a in slowing functional decline and disability progression and maintaining quality of life in this subject population.

The goal of this study is to evaluate the safety, tolerability and effectiveness of oral cladribine when taken in combination with Interferon-beta therapy for the treatment of MS. This st...
The main objective of this study is to establish interferon-beta-1a as the treatment of choice for chronic hepatitis C with better efficacy & safety profiles in monotherapy or combination ...
Extended DAC HYP monotherapy from study 205MS202 in order to evaluate long term safety and efficacy of DAC HYP in subjects with relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis (MS).
The BEYOND Follow-Up study will give patients who participated in the preceding BEYOND study the opportunity to continue treatment with the 500µg dose of interferon beta (IFNB) 1b and wil...
This study is to find out if Interferon-beta (IFN-beta) can recover its effectiveness after a washout period in patients with Multiple Sclerosis who have previously developed neutralizing ...
Subcutaneous (SC) peginterferon beta-1a and SC interferon beta-1a (IFN beta-1a) have demonstrated efficacy in treating relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS) but have never been compared in dir...
As new immunomodulatory therapies continue to be licensed for use in Multiple Sclerosis, it is important to remain vigilant for new, unexpected associations relating to these medications. We highlight...
An intensified process was developed that enables high level production of recombinant core streptavidin (cSAV), a non-glycosylated tetrameric protein utilised in a wide range of applications. A pH-st...
Sequential parallel comparison design (SPCD) has been proposed to increase the likelihood of success of clinical trials especially trials with possibly high placebo effect. Sequential parallel compari...
Interferon secreted by leukocytes, fibroblasts, or lymphoblasts in response to viruses or interferon inducers other than mitogens, antigens, or allo-antigens. They include alpha- and beta-interferons (INTERFERON-ALPHA and INTERFERON-BETA).
A ubiquitously expressed heterodimeric receptor that is specific for both INTERFERON-ALPHA and INTERFERON-BETA. It is composed of two subunits referred to as IFNAR1 and IFNAR2. The IFNAR2 subunit is believed to serve as the ligand-binding chain; however both chains are required for signal transduction. The interferon alpha-beta receptor signals through the action of JANUS KINASES such as the TYK2 KINASE.
An interferon regulatory factor that binds upstream TRANSCRIPTIONAL REGULATORY ELEMENTS in the GENES for INTERFERON-ALPHA and INTERFERON-BETA. It functions as a transcriptional activator for the INTERFERON TYPE I genes.
An interferon beta-1 subtype that has a methionine at position 1, a cysteine at position 17, and is glycosylated at position 80. It functions as an ANTI-VIRAL AGENT and IMMUNOMODULATOR and is used to manage the symptoms of RELAPSING-REMITTING MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS.
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.
Spinal Cord Disorders
The spinal cord is a bundle of nerves that runs down the middle of the back which carry signals back and forth between the body and brain. It is protected by vertebrae, which are the bone disks that make up the spine. An accident that damages the verte...
Of all the types of Dementia, Alzheimer's disease is the most common, affecting around 465,000 people in the UK. Neurons in the brain die, becuase 'plaques' and 'tangles' (mis-folded proteins) form in the brain. People with Al...
