Steroid drugs added to MS treatment can reduce disease activityThe addition of a steroid drug, methylprednisolone, to the multiple sclerosis (MS) drug can significantly reduce the amount of disease activity more than what could have been experienced with the use of MS drug in isolation, as per a presented study as part of the Late-breaking Science Program at the American Academy of Neurology’s 61st Annual Meeting in Seattle.

The study results clearly suggest that the two drugs, steroid and MS, can bring synergy when taken as a combination and provide a greater beneficial effect on the disease activity than MS drug alone, according to study author Mads Ravnborg, MD, of the Danish Multiple Sclerosis Research Center at Copenhagen University Hospital in Denmark.
