    The Implications of Natalizumab for Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Therapy

Course Director: Douglas A. Kerr, MD, PhD
January 18, 2005 - January 18, 2006


The approval of natalizumab for the treatment of MS presents MS-treating physicians and nurses with another therapy in their MS armamentarium. Recently released data from the Phase III natalizumab AFFIRM trial demonstrates a reduction in the risk of exacerbation by 66% in the first year of therapy, presenting a significant improvement over current MS therapies. This educational activity presents the natalizumab Phase III data and provides an expert discussion and Q&A; about the implications natalizumab may have for the treatment of MS, including infusion therapy and indications for use, alone and in combination with existing disease modifying therapies.
