Help at hand for RRMS patients

A revolutionary research study hints at the evidence that COPAXONE? (glatiramer acetate injection) may offer protection from axonal injury and induced neuronal metabolic recovery in patients with relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS). //

COPAXONE? (glatiramer acetate injection) is a selective MHC class II modulator. COPAXONE? is indicated for the reduction of the frequency of relapses in relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis. The most common side effects of COPAXONE? are redness, pain, swelling, itching, or a lump at the site of injection, weakness, infection, pain, nausea, joint pain, anxiety, and muscle stiffness.

The research study which was a pilot study comprises 18 RRMS patients using brain imaging techniques. It was found that COPAXONE? produced significant increases in n-acetylaspartate/creatine (NAA/Cr) ratio, an indicator of neuron and axon integrity, compared to four untreated control patients after one year of treatment. This increase was maintained at two years of follow-up. Additionally, patients treated with COPAXONE? showed a significant 50 percent reduction in relapses compared to baseline (p<0.001) while relapse rate in the untreated group remained unchanged.

“The increases in NAA/Cr ratios with COPAXONE? suggested sustained beneficial effects on cerebral axonal recovery. We believe this indicates a potential for improved electrical conduction pathways in the brain, supporting the emerging concept that, centrally, COPAXONE? may be acting as a neuroprotective agent,” said Omar Khan, M.D., associate professor of neurology and director of experimental therapeutics/clinical research, Multiple Sclerosis Center, Wayne State University. “This data is of critical significance because axonal transection is a well-known feature of active MS lesions and represents an irreversible stage of the disease process,” said Dr. Khan.

Twenty-two treatment-na?ve RRMS patients were included in the study. Baseline neu
