How KESIMPTA works.

Here’s what goes on with relapsing MS:

The immune system uses certain cells, like B cells, to help fight infections. These cells can become activated in the lymph nodes—the communication hub for the immune system. 

But there’s a miscommunication that happens in relapsing MS. Instead of protecting the immune system, these cells mistakenly attack the body’s myelin—the fatty, protective covering of the nerves in the brain and spinal cord.

Here’s what KESIMPTA does:

Although it's not known exactly how KESIMPTA works in relapsing MS, it's thought to travel specifically to the lymph nodes based on the way it's taken. From there, it's thought to reduce the number of B cells that are thought to play a role in relapsing MS.
This targeted approach to the lymph nodes is thought to limit the impact on other B cells your body needs to maintain immune function.
