Hey everyone........this just in.  Merck Serono has just released the results of its study of a pill.  It looks great!!!  It may be approved later this year!!  I am asking my doc about it when I have my check in Feb. 
It is stating nearly 60% efficacy!!!!  Woooo hooooo!!!

Rhonda (I meant to say Gretchen geesh must have R on my small brain),
Does it work on PPMS or just RRMS? Either way, it is very good news. Thanks a bunch! I will go on the site you gave and check it out.

I have not heard of this one.  I definitely will ask my neuro if he knows anything about it next month at my appointment.  I have my doubts that he will have any information.  G, make sure you let us know what your neuro says.
