New survey: environmental impact of DMTs

New Survey: Do you think the environmental footprint of disease-modifying therapies, e.g. the number of syringes, should be taken into account when making a decision about which DMT to go onto?

“A recent post highlighted the problem with the disposal of syringes from injectables. With the emergence of oral therapies the environmental impact of injectables may be an issue worth considering. To explore this we would appreciate it of you could vote on the latest survey.”

  1. "With the emergence of oral therapies…"Should this now read "With the gradual removal of the emerged oral therapies"?

  2. Re: "With the gradual removal of the emerged oral therapies"?I remain upbeat; I am confident NICE will say yes to Fingolimod on appeal and then there is BG12 and Teriflunomide in the wings. Who knows about the future of Cladribine Tablets? I suspect some generics drug maker in the developing world may take-up the baton. Let's hope so!
