TREATMENT TO ALTER THE DISEASE COURSE With a firm diagnosis of relapsing-remitting MS, it is imperative that patients be informed about the three approved agents available for reducing attack rates and severity. Based on European and Canadian studies, it is likely that beta interferon is also helpful to prevent progression in secondary progressive disease (1). The three approved agents, beta interferon-1b (Betaseron®) (2), beta interferon-1a (Avonex®) (3,4,5), and glatiramer acetate (Copaxone®) (6), have been in use for several years to more than two decades.

A transition to secondary progressive disease is common but may not appear for several decades. Primary progressive MS represents approximately 10 percent of cases, some of which are actually secondary progressive patients who deny, suppress, or forget earlier symptoms. Perhaps 5 percent are progressive-relapsing, although this form of MS is controversial. There are now accepted treatments for acute attacks and for reducing the frequency and severity of attacks. There is growing consensus that agents that reduce attack frequency also slow the progression of disability and that secondary progressive MS also responds to these agents.
