Tecfidera is a medicine used to treat multiple sclerosis (MS), a disease in which inflammation damages the protective insulation around nerves (demyelination) as well as the nerves themselves. It is used in adults and children from 13 years of age with a type of MS known as relapsing-remitting MS, where the patient has flare-ups of symptoms (relapses) followed by periods of recovery (remissions).
Tecfidera contains the active substance dimethyl fumarate.
