3X a week glatiramer acetate (Copaxone); innovation or life-cycle management? #MSBlog #MSResearch Epub: Khan et al. Three times weekly glatiramer acetate in relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis. Ann Neurol. 2013 May 20. doi: 10.1002/ana.23938. Objective: To assess the efficacy and safety of glatiramer acetate (GA) 40 mg administered three times weekly (tiw) compared with placebo in RRMSers. Methods: This randomized, double-blind study was conducted in 142 sites in 17 countries. RRMSers with at least one documented relapse in the 12 months before screening, or at least two documented relapses in the 24 months before screening, and an Expanded Disability Status Scale score ≤5.5, were randomized 2:1 to receive either subcutaneous (sc) GA 40 mg tiw (1 mL) or placebo for 12 months. Results: Of 1524 MSers screened, 1404 were randomized to receive GA 40 mg sc tiw (n=943) or placebo (n=461). Ninety-three percent and 91% of MSers in the placebo and GA groups, respectively,...

Epub: Mierzwa et al. FGF2 and FGFR1 Signaling Regulate Functional Recovery Following Cuprizone Demyelination Neurosci Lett. 2013. doi:pii: S0304-3940(13)00430-8. 10.1016/j.neulet.2013.05.010. In demyelinating diseases, such as multiple sclerosis, remyelination offers the potential to recover function of viable denuded axons by restoring saltatory conduction and/or protecting from further damage. Mice with genetic reduction of fibroblast growth factor 2 (Fgf2) or Fgf receptor 1 (Fgfr1) exhibit dramatically improved remyelination following experimental demyelination with cuprizone. The current studies are the first to test neurobehavioral outcomes with these gene deletions that improved remyelination. The cuprizone protocols used did not produce overt abnormalities but did reduce bilateral sensorimotor coordination (complex wheel task) and increase sociability (two chamber apparatus with novel mouse). A significant effect of genotype was observed on the complex wheel... [[ This is a content summary only. Visit my website for full links, other content, and more! ]]
Epub: Kinnunen et al. Specific peripheral B cell tolerance defects in patients with multiple sclerosis. J Clin Invest. 2013. doi:pii: 68775. 10.1172/JCI68775. Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a genetically mediated autoimmune disease of the central nervous system. B cells have recently emerged as major contributors to disease pathogenesis, but the mechanisms responsible for the loss of B cell tolerance in patients with MS are largely unknown. In healthy individuals, developing autoreactive B cells are removed from the repertoire at 2 tolerance checkpoints during early B cell development. Both of these central and peripheral B cell tolerance checkpoints are defective in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and type 1 diabetes (T1D). Here, we found that only the peripheral, but not the central, B cell tolerance checkpoint is defective in patients with MS. We show that this specific defect is accompanied by increased activation and homeostatic proliferation of mature naive B cells.... [[ This is a content summary only.
