Abstract

Glatiramer acetate (Copaxone®) is a disease-modifying agent approved by several health authorities worldwide for the treatment of relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis. Although its primary target is the inflammatory component of the disease, there are emerging pieces of evidence suggesting that glatiramer acetate might also have a neuroprotective effect. In this review, the results of glatiramer acetate clinical trials and other relevant studies as well as the place of glatiramer acetate among other approved disease-modifying treatments for relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis are discussed critically.
