That chart was also posted in another thread discussion about DMDs in general the other day: general-discussion-f1/topic22646.html
One problem with the chart is that many of those meds have been renamed since their clinical trials, so in that thread I also posted what those meds are now called and which of the new ones have their own forums here:
BG-12 is now the oral med Tecfidera (has its own forum here)
Rituximab (is found in the Rituxan forum here)
Teriflunomide is now the oral med Aubagio (has its own forum here)
Alemtuzumab, or Campath (has its own forum, soon to be re-named Lemtrada)
I also posted a link to a recent article in MSFocus magazine comparing most of the MS meds:http://eflip.msfocus.org/Spring2013.htm
Look on page 28 for "Everything You Need to Know about Adverse Reactions Associated with the Disease-Modifying Treatments for Multiple Sclerosis." Tecfidera is reviewed on p. 34.
Good luck in finding a treatment option that works for you!
