MS Breakthrough Drug’s FDA Approval Halted Until Spring

This video from Fox News is all about a new breakthrough drug which may help patients with multiple sclerosis (MS).

Early data suggests new B-cell therapy could allow for rapid dosing. Find out more.

As we learn in the video, there are approximately 2.3 million people in the world who suffer from MS. The hosts, along with the chairwoman of Race to Erase MS, talk about a new potential drug that works by suppressing the B-cells and encouraging remyelination. The drug will particularly help patients with the more aggressive form of the disease: primary progressive MS.

The FDA has yet to approve the drug, but hopefully it’ll be approved soon and available for MS patients in the spring.

Jack Osbourne talks about his multiple sclerosis diagnosis.

    Hi, my name is Michelle and I have MS. I live in Port Huron Michigan.

    I have had MS since 1989 when I was diagnosed with Optical Neuritis and having an MRI confirming MS. I have had typical ups and downs one experiences with MS however in 2015 my right leg decided nope, you’re not going to drive anymore so there goes your Independence right off the bat. Due to fatigue and barely being able to walk I can’t work at a normal 9 to 5 job so have to figure out how I can do a job at home so decided I’ll try to sell some of my cool photographs and make a little money for myself and give 10% of each sale or something like that to contribute to the research for the Cure already for MS. I have to get a website for the photos, not quite sure who to use for that task or (WIX, GoDaddy, etc). I have a one part done, domain name. Ideas welcome❤
