    Default Ocrevus doing well on the market

    According to this, Ocrevus wins an award as the most impressive drug launch of the year. Among the patients taking Ocrevus, 60% have RRMS and 40% have PPMS.

    I didn't know it's for RRMS and PPMS. It's about time they made something for PPMS.

    That seems to be one of its big selling points--that it's the first drug that can be prescribed for PPMS.

    Also, I think that Doctor who did the lengthy video that someone posted on here, (and I watched in it's entirety) said that it is also for Secondary Progressive. I believe he said all three types. If anyone remembers it differently let me know. It may have been BBS who posted that link.

    I remember the video but need to rewatch it. As I recall he more or less suggested that it was for SPMS by saying it was "for progressive MS" without specifying "primary progressive MS."

    I posted the video by Timothy Vollmer. He said that rituxan and Ocrevus were the same drug. The rituxan patent was running out so they repackaged it as Ocrevus. But,there is a small difference that might give one the edge over the other.

    The hope is that it is helping to repair some of what has been destroyed.
