which makes you wonder what their definition of a "blockbuster drug" is.Concerns Over Safety and Efficacy Will Prevent Emergence of a Blockbuster Drug Through 2020
which leads you to believe that oral therapies will be available at some unknown time before 2020 and for some reason we should believe that they will have only captured 25% of the market at that point.emerging oral therapies for multiple sclerosis, including a new drug from Novartis/Mitsubishi Pharma, will capture 25% of the market share by 2020
if an oral drug at least as effective as the crabs without glaring side effects became available, it would find 80-90% of the market..immediately.......or as quickly as they could pump up production to meet the demand.

Unlike Tysabri which can only be administered by registered infusion centers, and a lot of neuros opted not to go to the expense and effort to become an infusion center, an oral MS drug will be available at every pharmacy and all that will be required of a neuro is to write a prescription.
I've been WAY wrong before but I'd have to believe that when an oral drug becomes available, and if it doesn't acquire a bunch of bad baggage along the way, I'd have to think that not only will most people throw their needles away but a good number of people not currently on treatment would seriously consider an oral treatment.
That's a good point. Wishful thinking on my part but hopefully the orals will prove more effective than the crabs and make the decision REALLY easyewizabeth wrote:Some people that are doing ok on the shots or infusions might be hesitant to change for awhile.
