Collaboration to advance novel treatment for spasticity and pain in MS

Image

Concert Pharmaceuticals has joined forces with New York-based Fast Forward, a subsidiary of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, to fund the pre-clinical advancement of a new drug developed by the company, C-21191, to treat spasticity and pain in people suffering from MS.

Again? This is the 31294788123780418230812384129472389th time they cure spasticity and MS. Great news, I am having a party tonight!

Why is such trash announced in press releases?
Shortest joke: "We may not be able to cure MS but we can manage its symptoms."

Medical Cannabis reduces spasticity for me. CBD (Cannabidiol)) has a far more beneficial effect than THC.

Using plants instead of pills makes sense to me.

Nature's not always your friend. Tetrodotoxin from puffer fish is just one example. Calyculin, a toxin from a marine sponge that acts as a potent phophatase inhibitor and mutagen, is another. Then there's domoic acid from a phytoplankton that causes amnesic shellfish poisoning (lets not forget saxitoxin which causes paralytic shellfish poisoning) and so on...
