Hopes Raised for Effectiveness of Multiple Sclerosis Drug


Points from article:
- the drug (daclizumab/Zenapax) has proven more effective than anticipated
- seems to help with other auto-immune diseases
- it is believed to inhibit T-cell activation (the main culprit of destruction in MS)
- especially useful for "highly inflammatory" MS (i.e. Relapsing/Remitting)
- it appears that the drug does not damage the immune system
