DMD could not protect from relapse taken during remission, the idea of using this drug 'discovery' was to fool cellular component of immune responce DURING relapse (at the beginning of drug making), and therefore to limit 'agressive attack' of T-cells. During remission cells couldn't get into the brain, it is sealed.
Actually this idea of DMD came from alternative treatment, when you eat animal brain during and after attack you will recover faster. But sheep brain is much cheaper
Teva tried to get oral version, it was 'in the air' somewhere around 2000, but they didn't. Again, if you come up with oral version - sheep brain is more affordable.
