Multiple sclerosis, or MS, is a progressive chronic disorder of the nervous system that is most often seen in patients between the ages of 20 and 40. In MS, the immune system attacks a protein called myelin, which forms a protective sheet around neurofibers. When myelin is damaged by MS, neurons struggle to communicate, leading to an accumulation of neuronal loss, atrophy and significant disability over time. We are committed to meeting the needs of patients with MS, and we are currently supporting treatment options that promote nerve protection and facilitate neuronal regeneration.
Parkinson’s disease is the second most-common neurodegenerative disorder, affecting more than 10 million people worldwide. In addition to our therapy for advanced Parkinson’s, we are currently exploring other pathways that could provide patients with a new method of treatment for this progressive chronic disease. We are also developing a new delivery system to enhance the patient and caregiver experience while administering our existing therapy for Parkinson’s disease.
