What is BG-12?
Well, I’m not really sure either, but I can tell you that:
1. it’s an oral MS med
2. it’s not Gilenya
3. I’m scared of Gilenya…
4. it’s about to go into phase 3 testing
5. the testing will be vs my lovely med, Copaxone!
So, my current thing to ponder (and email my doctor about) is whether I should try to sign up to be a participant in the testing… I’m a little scared of getting a placebo and unknowingly being without treatment for months. That seems like a generally bad idea for me, although I know it would benefit the MS community etc etc yada yada… but okay being off treatment is scary!
If you (yes YOU, if you exist) know anything about BG-12 or have any thoughts to share… go ahead and do that 🙂
