It is not an interferon, but may be grouped with interferon betas Avonex and Betaseron; together the three first-line treatments are sometimes known as the "ABC" drugs for MS. The exact mechanism of action of Copaxone in patients with MS is unknown. A generic form of glatiramer acetate is also available under the name Glatopa, but only for the once-daily injection.
