FDA approves first MS treatment in pill form – The Chart - CNN.com Blogs

Quote:
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved the first oral drug for treating relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (MS), the most common form of the disease.

Unlike current MS drugs, which are given by injections or infusion, this new drug, called Gilenya or fingolimod, comes in a capsule which is taken once a day. Taking a pill is much less painful than having to stick a needle in your body on a daily, weekly or monthly basis, which is what many MS patients have to do now.
This is awesome! My MIL has advanced MS and hopefully this will help her.

That is a great discovery!
My first DH & I were friends with a couple where the wife had MS, I remember how much pain she was in on a daily basis. I'm glad to see research pay off!!
