2 Studies for Patients with Relapsing-Remitting MS
- Patients with Relapsing-Remitting Multiple Sclerosis (RRMS) between the ages of 18 and 65 may be qualified to join this study that is evaluating a new drug to help reduce relapses. Qualified volunteers will receive study-related medical evaluations and the study drug at no cost. Compensation for travel may also be provided.
- Patients with Relapsing-Remitting Multiple Sclerosis that have been newly treated with a specific MS treatment or those with other approved MS disease-modifying therapies may be qualified to participate in this study, which is monitoring patient safety during these treatments. By enrolling in the study, you will help researchers collect important information on patients being treated for relapsing forms of MS. Participants must be between 18 and 65 years old.
Actively Relapsing MS
Patients between the ages of 18 and 70 currently experiencing a MS relapse may participate in an investigative study of a human antibody that promotes remyelination in early preclinical studies. Qualified volunteers will receive study-related medical evaluations and the study drug at no cost.
Chronic Pain from MS
Patients between the ages of 18 and 65 and have chronic MS related pain with no other diseases or conditions that cause pain may be eligible for this new study. Participants will be randomly divided into two groups and meet once a week for four weeks. Both groups will use new psychological treatments to reduce pain perception to determine which treatment is better at reducing pain.
