Radicava™ has been approved for the treatment of ALS
The FDA has approved Radicava™ (Edaravone), the first new treatment specifically for ALS in 22 years. The drug was approved by the FDA less than a year after Mitsubishi Tanabe Pharma Corporation submitted a New Drug Application. The only other approved treatment specifically for ALS, riluzole, was approved in 1995. Please click the links on the right to find more information on Radicava and check back often for updates.
On May 9th, The ALS Association hosted a webinar about the approval of Radicava. You can download the slides or watch a recording of the webinar. We will also be hosting another webinar, check back here for day and time.
