    Breaking News: FDA Approves Zinbryta for RRMS
    avatar
    Stephanie Butler, RN posted:
    The FDA approved Zinbryta for the treatment of RRMS. Zinbryta is a monoclonal antibody that is injected under the skin once a month. In clinical trials it was shown to be 45% more effective then Avonex (an interferon) in reducing relapse rates.
    Serious side effects including liver injury, skin reactions, and secondary immune conditions were seen in clinical trials, so Zinbryta should be reserved for people who have already tried at least two other DMTs.
    It is always helpful to expand the treatment options for RRMS, but hopefully we will hear news soon about Ocrelizumab, which is anticipated to be the first DMT approved for progressive MS.
