Antisense - ATL-1102

Not much info - Teva is partnering with Antisense Therapeutics to help the latter get its MS drug - ATL-1102 - (currently Phase II) to market. ATL-1102 has a similar approach as Tysabri.

Environmental factors

Doesn't say what they are in the abstract! The Australia case would seem to point to Vit D as one of the environmental factors. But the increase in MS in woman is another puzzle. But the researchers appear to be making some headway.
