Rilutek (riluzole) tablets in the U.S.
Rhone-Poulenc Rorer is now marketing Rilutek (riluzole) tablets in the U.S...probably soon in Canada.
This is the first drug approved for treating amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS, Lou Gehrig's disease).
ALS is a progressive, degenerative disease of the nerves. It leads to muscle weakness...paralysis...and eventually death.
