Andrographolides. Does anybody know what is that?

It seems that there is a new therapy for progressive MS based on something called Andrographolides.
Does anybody have any information?

I have found only this:

InnoBioscience
Product Development: IB-MS for Multiple Sclerosis
https://innobioscience.com/index.php?page=IBMS

and,

interesting. It looks like the trial was completed in 2017, but no results were posted- not encouraging. Andrographolide seems to be an extract of the green chireta plant, which is used for medicinal purposes in southeast asia.
Here's a little more info:
