N-acetylglucosamine (GlcNAc) & Copaxone

Hi following reports that N-acetyl glucosamine may be beneficial for MS sufferers http://www.msrc.co.uk/index.cfm/fuseaction/show/pageid/1861/ are there any thoughts as to how this may interact with copaxone. As they both seem to work with Tcells ? Good health Mark

I got in touch with LDN trust as well to find out if its safe with copaxone, (as I’m waiting on a delivery of copaxone,) they said yes they are both ok together. Al x

I believe this study was on mice with an engineered condition similar to MS so there is no way of knowing what it would do for humans with MS. A lot of these findings get released way too early and get hyped up way too much. I don’t believe there would be any interaction with Copaxone, for what it’s worth. They do different things. Karen x
