Read frequently asked questions about COPAXONE®
How does COPAXONE® work in the body?
COPAXONE® is thought to act by modifying immune processes that are believed to be responsible for the pathogenesis of MS.1 This hypothesis is supported by studies utilizing experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE), a condition induced in animals through immunization against CNS-derived material containing myelin.1 Studies in animals and in vitro systems suggest that upon administration, glatiramer acetate–specific suppressor T cells are induced and activated in the periphery.1
How often is COPAXONE® administered?
COPAXONE® 40 mg is used 3 times a week, with injections at least 48 hours apart around the same time on the same 3 days each week. It can be administered manually or with the autoject®2 for glass syringe.
