The purpose of this study is to determine the effect of 2 different doses of daclizumab on reducing relapses in subjects with relapsing-remitting MS.
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 primary objective of the study is to evaluate the effects of treatment with daclizumab on the proportion of participants relapse-free at 6 months in Relapsing-Remitting Multiple Sclero...
This research study is being conducted in the U.S. and Europe to evaluate the safety and efficacy of daclizumab for the treatment of multiple sclerosis (MS).
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 stu...
Daclizumab beta is a humanized monoclonal antibody specific for the human interleukin-2 receptor alpha chain (CD25). In two pivotal studies in relapsing multiple sclerosis (MS), patients treated with ...
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...
Natalizumab is highly effective in the treatment of relapsing multiple sclerosis patients. Unfortunately, after stopping natalizumab, there is an increased risk of inflammation in the central nervous ...
Rebound phenomena after discontinuation of different treatments for relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS) have previously been described. Systematic database research in PubMed did not show an...
Interferon-β has been approved for the treatment of relapsing-remitting (RR) multiple sclerosis (MS), whereas its efficacy in preventing long-term disability and conversion to secondary progressive (...
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.
A random polymer of L-ALANINE, L-GLUTAMIC ACID, L-LYSINE, and L-TYROSINE that structurally resembles MYELIN BASIC PROTEIN. It is used in the treatment of RELAPSING-REMITTING 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)
The most common clinical variant of MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS, characterized by recurrent acute exacerbations of neurologic dysfunction followed by partial or complete recovery. Common clinical manifestations include loss of visual (see OPTIC NEURITIS), motor, sensory, or bladder function. Acute episodes of demyelination may occur at any site in the central nervous system, and commonly involve the optic nerves, spinal cord, brain stem, and cerebellum. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp903-914)
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...
