Disease-modifying therapies (DMTs) are important tools in the fight against multiple sclerosis. To date, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved 14 DMTs: 13 therapies for the treatment of relapsing forms of MS, some of which are also approved for clinically isolated syndrome; and one therapy, Novantrone, for the treatment of “worsening MS;” however, Novantrone is no longer customarily used in the United States.
In May 2016, daclizumab (under the brand name, Zinbryta) was approved by the FDA as the fourteenth DMT option for people diagnosed with MS in the U.S. In July 2016, Zinbryta was approved for use in Europe. The FDA suggests that because of its safety profile, the use of Zinbryta should generally be reserved for patients who have had an inadequate response to two or more drugs indicated for the treatment of MS.
