Using copaxone prevents antibodies from developing.
Almost all doctors and neurologists are now advising people with MS to begin use of one of the disease-modifying agents (Copaxone, Betaseron, Avonex, Novantrone) as early in the disease process as possible, and to continue the use of therapy once started, unless there is a clear lack of benefit, intolerable side effects, new data which reveals other reasons for cessation, or better therapy is available
Copaxone significantly reduces the number of relapses in people with relapsing-remitting MS.It appears to work differently from any other therapy you and your doctor could choose. For many people with multiple sclerosis, the effectiveness and tolerability of this drug make it the best choice.
Avonex and Betaseron are interferons, which affect many immune reactions in the body. Copaxone is the only non-steroidal, non-interferon MS therapy.It is thought to modify those elements within the immune process that are believed to be responsible for MS.
There are two classes of these therapies: interferon (Betaseron & Avonex) and non-interferon (Copaxone & Novantrone). Copaxone is glatiramer acetate for injection. These therapies work to reduce the number of relapses, flare-ups or exacerbations. Reducing the relapses, or lengthening the time between them, has both physical and psychological benefits
One of the first published studies to measure the therapeutic power of Copaxone studied 50 patients with relapsing-remitting MS for a 2-year period. Analysis of the study concluded that more Copaxone patients (56%) were relapse-free than placebo patients (28%).
Patients with Copaxone had a significantly lower average number of relapses (0.6 relapses with Copaxone versus 2.4 relapses with placebo). This difference equated to a 75% reduction in relapses between Copaxone and placebo-treated patients
