    The basics
    Ocrevus is a prescription medication, so people considering the treatment should discuss with their physicians whether it may be suitable for them.

    Genentech — Ocrevus’s developer — is working to make sure that patients receive adequate information about the therapy. The company has set up a website — http://www.ocrevus.com — with detailed information. Patients can also call 1-844-627-3887 (Ocrevus Connects, Monday to Friday, from 9 am to 8 pm ET) with questions concerning this therapy.
