The active ingredient of COPAXONE is acetate salts of synthetic polypeptides, which contains amino acids such as L-glutamic acid, L-alanine, L-lysine and L-tyrosine. All are naturally occurring substances. Glatiramer acetate has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the US for being helpful in the reduction of relapse frequency for the disease multiple sclerosis.

L-glutamine helps in the production of the natural anti-oxidant glutathione, which has a crucial role in preventing cell damage since it is a powerful neuro-transmiter for central nervous system.

The approval of COPAXONE by the ministry followed favorable efficacy and results of a 52-week, open-label study. The study was conducted in Japan by the manufacturer in patients affected with relapsing-remitting MS.
