What is Ocrevus?

Orcevus, is a biological infusion that was approved by the FDA in 2017 to treat Relapsing- Remitting Multiple Sclerosis (RRMS) and  Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis (PPMS), marking the first FDA approved treatment for PPMS. 

Orcevus works by blocking the CD20 marker on B lymphocytes, suppressing the body’s immune response. By suppressing the body’s immune response, it prevents healthy tissues in your brain and spinal cord from being attacked.
