If it's on your mind and it has to do with multiple sclerosis in any way, post it here.

Schering profits up

It's good to see that some benefit from MS. Schering, who manufacture Betaferon, have posted better than expected profits. Betaferon sales have increased by 8%. Not sure if that means that more people are being diagnosed with this disease and are being put on treatment or that they have put their prices up.

Probably a combination of things, bromley. But I'd hazard a guess it's because within the last few months, neuros have started prescribing double-dose Betaseron (double the dose, double the profits) and prescribing it more often to secondary progressive MSers.
