Glatiramer acetate immunization induces specific antibody and cytokine responses in ALS patients.

We assessed humoral and cytokine responses in monthly plasma samples from ALS patients who received glatiramer acetate (GA) immunization every day or every other week, or remained untreated (control) from a six-month phase II trial. Samples were evaluated by GA-specific ELISA assays for detection of combined immunoglobulin (Ig) classes (IgM,A,G), IgG alone… CONTINUE READING
