Multiple Sclerosis Drug BG-12

Postby orion98665 » Thu Mar 22, 2012 6:35 pm

Has anybody heard of the drug BG-12..??? Wife had an appointment with her neuro today and is looking to put
her on BG-12. She currently is taking Rebif and doing quite well with the only side affect is the rashes at injection site.
Anyhow, any info would be greatly appreciated.


Thanks,

Bob

There was some information on BG-12 from the ECTRIMS conference last year. You can probably pull up their final minutes on the computer. They seemed very enthusiastic about it; I didn't know it was available for prescribing now though.

Biogen just filed their new drug application with the FDA this month. I don't think that "BG-12" is available yet.

Thanks NHE, and joannedoty. Your right BG-12 is not available yet but her neuro is looking to put here on the drug when it is available. I'm thinking this will be when she has her next visit with neuro is in September.



Thanks,
