Copaxone for SPMS?

Postby Aaron » Fri Jul 31, 2009 9:40 am

Hello All,

I was wondering if anyone else heard the Copaxone was useful in treating Secondary Progrssve MS. I was at a dinner a couple of weeks ago, and I could've sworn that I heard the speaker, (a neurologist from Mpls), mention that Copaxone was now being used for SPMS.

I, unfortunately, was involved in the Dirucotide Phase III trial which means I had to stop all medications, (Copaxone and steroids), in February of last year to participate. My physical abilities have gone downhill ever since.

Although I kind of had the feeling that I was getting the placebo, I was looking forward to the open label trial next year. Now, afer the events of July 28th, I'm grasping at straws. Anything to avoid Novantrone or Cytoxin,(sp?), which were my docs recomendation if the trial didn't pan out. The side effects don't get me excited. Heart failure or Leukemia? Talk about out of the frying pan and into the fire.... :!:
