No. of Recommendations: 1
No idea on cost right now, but a whole damn lot would be my guess. As far as the effectiveness, the approval after 1 year
of trial data says the FDA is pretty impressed, but it'll be nice to see another year or two of data. Since Biogen (Avonex) teamed up with Elan (Antegren/Tysabri) on this, they're going to try to push it as a combo treatment. I don't agree with this, but we'll have to see how doctor's end up prescribing it and how much Biogen pulls in off of it. I'm also wondering if Serono (Rebif) will end up lowering price.

A novel treatment that blocks passage of the blood-brain barrier is pretty
exciting, though.
