Alasdair Coles from Cambridge Neuroscience discussed the medication during the American Academy of Neurology's annual meeting in Washington DC. One of the key features of the medication is its delivery which includes an intensive start and trails off to allow patients to go several years without needing any additional medication. With such strong treatment there is also a risk of adverse events which Coles also talked about.
