Copaxone and Cancer Link?

I'm surprised no one else has posted on this. According to a January 19, 2005 article on Globes Online (an Israeli business publication), an article linking Copaxone with an increased risk of breast cancer may be published soon in the medical journal Breast Cancer Research and Treatment.

The full article, which deals with the impact on Teva's share price (rather than on patients taking the stuff) can be found at:

Copaxone effectiveness? (or lack of?)

I've been reading mixed reports on the web about copaxone and it's effectiveness.

^^^^
Seems the most promising data I can find, which is consistent to what I read. The longer one takes copaxone, the better it will work. This seems to be ideal in my situation as I'm young and was picked up in MS's early stages. I dont feel I need to go on ...

Copaxone effects they dont tell you about!!!

I was currently recieving avonex treatment (for a year and a half), and stopped a few months ago because the side effects were worse than having the MS itself. After a wonderful couple of months treatment free, I have been given copaxone as an alternative because my neuro thought the interferons didnt suit me!

So far I have done 5 injections and feel worse than I did on the avonex. I am getting the usual ...

Has anyone noticed bruising at injection site?

Hi Everyone,

Has anyone noticed bruising at your injection sites? I just recently noticed that I have bruises on my arms and on my thighs. It's ugly!

Is there anything I can do to reduce them? As it is I ice the injection sites after I am done.

Cochrane report

OK...here is a revisited article on Copaxone by the Cochrane Group which is a non-profit organization.

I would imagine that Teva, the makers of Copaxone, wouldn't have the Cochrane Group on their Christmas list this year...if ever!!

Copaxone pre-filled and headaches

Did anyone else suffer from headaches when they swapped to the pre-filled syringes ? :( I am waking up every morning with a de-hydration sort of headache and if I have even half a glass of wine I get a major hangover the next day. :oops: I am not very happy about this !!!

Copaxone break

I have just taken a 10-day break from my copaxone. Before I start again, I am wondering if there are any cautions I should be aware of. It looks like the research shows you can start again with no problems, but I do not know for sure and don't want to experience the hyper feeling if that is more likely. Any info please?

Thanks, Sheila
