Ocrevo is now the first actual drug meant to treat the more serious forms of MS. MS, for those that don’t know, is a serious disease that eventually leads to loss of cognitive ability and later paralysis.
The drug is being billed as an intravenous infusion, which, is unheard of for a drug of its kind.
The cost? $65,000 a year.
