Glatiramer acetate acts on innate immune cells, including monocytes, dendritic cells and B cells, which in turn modulate adaptive functions of B and T cells inducing anti-inflammatory and regulatory cytokine secretion.
Prevalence of MS recorded in the UK from 1990 to 2010 increased by about 2.4% per year, reaching 285.8 per 100 000 in women and 113.1 per 100 000 in men by 2010. There was a consistent decrease in incidence of MS reaching 11.52 per 100,000 per year in women and 4.84 per 100,000 per year in men by 2010 [1].
