Multiple sclerosis (“MS”) is a disease where the body’s immune system damages the protective covering on nerves (myelin sheath).  See diagram.  The disease affects the brain’s ability to communicate with the rest of the body.  Ultimately, the disease can cause nerve deterioration, which is irreversible.  Unfortunately, there is no cure for MS.

Researchers think that genetics and childhood infections may play a role in MS, but the exact cause is unknown.  MS is an autoimmune disease where the body’s immune system actually attacks itself.  With MS, the body is attacking the brain and spinal cord.  The disease usually presents itself in people between ages 20 and 40, with women being twice as likely as men to develop MS.

Abbott Laboratories issued some serious warnings for one of its popular drugs Humira (also known as adalimumab).  Humira acts by blocking TNF (tumor necrosis factor – involved in inflammatory and immune responses) which can cause inflammation and lead to immune-system disease.

Humira is used to treat conditions such as Crohn’s Disease, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Plaque Psoriasis, Psoriatic Arthritis, Ankylosing Spondylitis, and Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis.  Other TNF blockers include Remicade (infliximab), Enbrel (etanercept), Cimzia (certolizumab pegol), and Simponi (golimumab).

Client Reviews

  • Jonathan Rosenfeld was professionally objective, timely, and knowledgeable. Also, his advice was extremely effective regarding my case. In addition, Jonathan was understanding and patient pertaining to any of my questions or concerns. I was very happy with the end result and I highly recommend Jonathan Rosenfeld.
    ★★★★★
  • Extremely impressed with this law firm. They took control of a bad motorcycle crash that left my uncle seriously injured. Without any guarantee of a financial recovery, they went out and hired accident investigators and engineers to help prove how the accident happened. I am grateful that they worked on a contingency fee basis as there was no way we could have paid for these services on our own.
    ★★★★★
