How effective is Radicava/Radicut (edaravone) for ALS?

An easy-to-understand infographic displaying the results from the clinical trial

If you're trying to decide whether or not to try the newly FDA approved medicine Radicava (edaravone) to treat amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), chances are that one of the first things you looked at were the results from the clinical trial.

However if you're not from a science background it can be tricky to understand all the medical terminology and statistics, so we thought we'd create an infographic summarising the clinical trial results in an easy-to-read format.

We hope it's helpful – feel free to Tweet, Pin and share it with others who may also find it a useful resource! (You're most welcome to republish this infographic on your own website etc., as long as you don't make any changes to it and credit TheSocialMedwork as the creator.)


*Side note: 'Radicut' and 'Radicava' are simply different country brand names for the exact same active ingredient, edaravone, produced by the original manufacturer, Mitsubishi Tanabe Pharmaceuticals. More information about that in an earlier blog that we wrote.
