People have been looking for an oral DMD for many years. Some can't take the injectables anymore, so they get infused with Tysabri or try Novantrone or Cytoxan, etc.
So an oral drug may tempt a lot of people. Not me, but many will be switching to this oral pill. Biogen has a lot to lose in this market.
Many Big Pharma companies will try to copy an oral pill, but the cost seems to be the same as the injectables.
Not fair to so many people. I heard it will be available around March 2011. I don't remember where I read that.
All drugs have some side effects. Some worse than others. Death is more than a side effect, IMO. They need a safe oral pill with no side effects, one that will be much more effective than those made so far. JMO
Thanks for sharing this information. Neuros can now add another DMD to their medical bag.
Anyone on this forum that is on this drug from the Clinical trials? Has it helped?
