How RRMS Happens


Although the exact cause is unknown, relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (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 nerves.9,10

What Is BETASERON® (interferon beta-1b)?

BETASERON is a prescription medicine used to reduce the number of relapses in people with relapsing forms of MS. This includes people who have had their first symptoms of MS and have an MRI consistent with MS. BETASERON is similar to certain interferon proteins that are produced in the body. It will not cure MS but may decrease the number of flare-ups of the disease4
