Cure For Multiple Sclerosis Found In Alemtuzumab? Find Out What Experts Have To Say
A new research currently suggests the introduction of a drug named "alemtuzumab" as a means of improving some of the physical inabilities linked to Multiple Sclerosis. Researchers believe that the drug can be used for the treatment of the said disease. Alemtuzumab is known to be a Disease Modifying Drug (DMD) which is considered to lessen the intensity levels of relapses for an individual with Multiple Sclerosis experiences.
