I was beyond confused at the title of your post, and then I remembered Borat... ;)

I did a quick look for more information on this therapy, and came up empty, at least in English-language. We'll keep an eye out for it.

I found this from the pharmaceutical company's site.

Are Enkorten and FAR404 the same thing?

NHE, I think so. I got to the same place in a similar post in the pipeline section.

I took a very quick look at the information available in Bosnian language-- didn't find too much solid stuff out there-- it looks like Phase II was completed in December. The drug is an immunomodulatory agent of some sort (sorry, don't speak either English or any other language well enough to understand dr-speak). It is administered sub-Q; was tested on 60 RR (I think) patients, half of whom were controls. Again, all I was able to find are references to "many" of them experiencing improvement in MRI and EDSS, as well as in bladder, bowel control, eye function, coordination etc. Looks like it's proceeding to Phase III; some of the testing centers either were or will be (I couldn't understand that part) in Germany.

The Farmacija site lists Zahida Ademović as the R&D manager. A search on PubMed yields several papers with Z. Ademović listed as an author. A few of these abstracts discuss cell adhesion via beta-integrins, e.g.,

It may be the case that the drug in trials by Farmacija affect cell adhesion.

Hi Crue,

Your English is good. Thank you for the translation. Did you find a reference to the phase II study?
