The risk of relapse during pregnancy was significantly higher in the group of women treated with natalizumab or fingolimod compared to the group with interferon beta or glatiramer acetate, and the postpartum risk of relapses was lower than that found in previous reports. Expand
Reversible dementia secondary to topiramate.
Functional magnetic resonance imaging reveals that topiramate has a critical effect on the cerebral neural systems that mediate expressive language and should be included in the list of drugs associated with dementia, and used with caution in older patients. Expand
Oral BG-12 in multiple sclerosis.
It is rather disappointing that the Comparator and an Oral Fumarate in Relapsing–Remitting Multiple Sclerosis (CONFIRM) study, reported by Fox et al., included glatiramer acetate as an active comparison drug but avoided a head-to-head comparison between BG-12 and glatireporter acetate. Expand
