Interferon gamma 1b

Interferon-γ 1b is used to treat chronic granulomatous disease[12] and osteopetrosis.[13] It is manufactured by InterMune as Actimmune and costs around USD300 per vial.[citation needed].

A study accepted for publishing in March 2012 has shown "..treatment with IFNγ increases frataxin expression in DRG neurons, prevents their pathological changes and ameliorates the sensorimotor performance in FRDA mice",[14] providing a potential treatment for patients with Friedreich's ataxia. Human trials have not yet been conducted.
