Naltrexone is an oral medication approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of opiate and alcohol addiction. It has been proposed that low-dose naltrexone (LDN) is effective in preventing multiple sclerosis (MS) attacks, slowing the progression of MS, and treating MS symptoms. LDN is claimed to be effective for multiple other diseases, including cancer, AIDS, rheumatoid arthritis, and Crohn disease. Dr. Bernard Bihari, a physician in New York City, was the first to propose that LDN may be an effective treatment for MS and other diseases. A patent for the use of naltrexone in MS has been awarded by the U.S. Patent Office.
