1. A copolymer-1 composition comprising a mixture of copolymers of alanine, glutamic acid, lysine and tyrosine, in a molar ratio of approximately 6:2:5:1,
respectively, the copolymer species in the mixture being non-uniform with respect to molecular weight and sequence, which is synthesized by polymerization of suitably protected amino acid carboxyanhydrides, wherein less than 5% of the copolymers have a
molecular weight above 40 kDa, and wherein the composition is suitable for treating multiple sclerosis.
2. The copolymer-1 composition of claim 1, wherein less than 2.5% of the copolymers have a molecular weight above 40 kDa.
3. The copolymer-1 composition of claim 1, wherein the mixture of copolymers is synthesized by polymerization of N-carboxyanhydrides of alanine, tyrosine, 7-benzyl glutamate and e-N-trifluoroacetyllysine.
4. The copolymer-1 composition of claim 3, wherein less than 2.5% of the copolymers have a molecular weight above 40 kDa.
