Acorda presents new analysis of AMPYRA tablets at ECTRIMS Congress Acorda Therapeutics.

This new evaluation shows that the MSWS-12 score differences, 7.30 factors between AMPYRA placebo and responders, and 7.02 points between AMPYRA responders and all nonresponders, exceed the consensus professional group criteria and satisfy the requirements for clinically significant and meaningful differences thereby. An AMPYRA responder was defined as someone who walked faster on the Timed 25-Foot Walk at 3 of 4 on-treatment assessments than at any of the 5 off-treatment assessments. ‘Strolling is a crucial function, and walking disability is often cited by people with MS as the utmost concerning aspect of their disease,’ stated Ron Cohen, M.D., CEO and President of Acorda Therapeutics.Those who were bullied were much more likely to be in lower grades, females and white. In addition they were more likely to carry a weapon to college than kids who weren’t bullied . ‘Large numbers of high school students survey having been victimized by bullies and admit to transporting a weapon to school. Greater efforts need to be expended on reducing bullying in all of its many forms,’ said Dr. Schapiro.
