Indications

BETASERON® (interferon beta-1b) is a prescription medicine used to reduce the number of relapses in people with relapsing forms of multiple sclerosis (MS). This includes people who have had their first symptoms of multiple sclerosis and have an MRI consistent with multiple sclerosis. BETASERON will not cure MS but may decrease the number of flare-ups of the disease.

How RRMS Happens


Although the exact cause is unknown, RRMS is thought to be an autoimmune disease in which some T cells (one type of immune cell) mistakenly attack the central nervous system (CNS)—the brain, spinal cord, and optic nerves9,10
