This video from Fox News is all about a new breakthrough drug which may help patients with multiple sclerosis (MS).

Early data suggests new B-cell therapy could allow for rapid dosing. Find out more.

As we learn in the video, there are approximately 2.3 million people in the world who suffer from MS. The hosts, along with the chairwoman of Race to Erase MS, talk about a new potential drug that works by suppressing the B-cells and encouraging remyelination. The drug will particularly help patients with the more aggressive form of the disease: primary progressive MS.

The FDA has yet to approve the drug, but hopefully it’ll be approved soon and available for MS patients in the spring.
