hackwriter posted:
Opexa has changed the name of its drug, Tovaxin, to Tcelna, as it relaunches Phase IIb trials in 2012 in SPMS patients. See details in the link below:

Currently there is only one FDA-approved treatment for SPMS. Novantrone, originally a cancer chemotherapy, is an infusion therapy performed once every three months for up to 24 months for the treatment of Secondary-Progressive MS.
