Reconval for Multiple Sclerosis

  • Multiple Sclerosis therapy with injectable drugs such as beta-Interferon may be accompanied by frequent local side effects (injection site pain, burning, erythema and necrosis),
  • Often these skin changes very severe and may limit your dosing frequency and thus resulting in a reduced efficacy of your treatment
  • Sometimes your physician may need to stop therapy and change to an alternative less optimal treatment
  • Application of Reconval® K1 reduces local skin reactions and may therefore improve your quality of life, treatment tolerability and overall therapeutic outcome
