Aaron Boster from OhioHealth: Extended Data On Lemtrada Shows More Good News
SEPTEMBER 17, 2016
As more and more treatments are approved for patients with multiple sclerosis questions are being answered about their effectiveness long past their approval dates. This is true for many of the medications including Lemtrada.
Aaron Boster, MD, from OhioHealth discussed the latest data being presented on the medication at the annual ECTRIMS conference in London. Unlike other treatments which are taken daily, weekly, or monthly Boster noted Lemtrada is given in much more extended durations and has shown to be effective for much longer periods of time. Many patients, he noted, do not need any further treatment after a second dose of the medication.
