Copaxone® for all types of MS

What is this treatment?

Glatiramer acetate (Copaxone®) is a synthetic protein made up of a combination of four amino acids, which are the natural building blocks of protein in the body. It is thought to work by connecting cells to stop them attacking the myelin. It is administered by a daily injection given under the skin.
