Cinnomer® (glatiramer acetate) is a combination of four amino acids (proteins) that affect the immune system.
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a potentially disabling disease of the brain and spinal cord (central nervous system). In MS, the immune system attacks the protective sheath (myelin) that covers nerve fibers and causes communication problems between your brain and the rest of your body. Eventually, the disease can cause permanent damage or deterioration of the nerves.
Cinnomer® injection is used to treat relapsing forms of multiple sclerosis. Cinnomer® will not cure MS, but it can make relapses occur less often.
Usual Adult Dose for Multiple Sclerosis: 40 mg subcutaneously 3 times a week.
