Scientists studying the effect of Copaxone on axonal health recently released the results of a four-year study. This study used magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS), an imaging technique that can detect the presence of different molecules, to analyze a particular region of the brain in MS subjects on Copaxone. Comparison of the images taken at baseline to those taken four years later revealed an increase in the levels of Naa, a component of axons. This increase was also seen in some subjects who went on Copaxone midway through the study. These results indicate that even over a period of several years, Copaxone is capable of enhancing neuronal health and survival in MS.
