I read the above links about this drug and one thing I found interesting was the reaction of the MS Society..."Mr Schofield's wife Liz, a support officer at the Halifax branch of the MS Society, said: "Living with MS is difficult and the symptoms can be very debilitating - anything that helps people manage their condition is good news and it should be made available if there is a clinical need."
