13 August 2012
A study of a 5mg/twice daily dose of fampridine found no improvement in walking speed compared to placebo. The good news for Acorda, who make the drug, whose patent for the 10mg dose runs until 2027. The bad news is that in the current trial the 10mg dose also missed the primary endpoint, though did show improvements in secondary measures.
