Participate in a Multiple Sclerosis Research Study
If you or someone you love has been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, perhaps you should consider participating in a clinical research study. Perhaps the best reason to participate in an MS clinical trial is so that you can take an active role in your health care, by educating yourself regarding your condition. You will obtain access to top quality medical care from our Board Certified physicians at a medical research healthcare facility specializing in Multiple Sclerosis.
Health insurance is not necessary to participate. Patients who qualify for our clinical trials will receive all study related care and treatment at no cost. In some cases you may be compensated for your time and travel. You may even gain access to research treatments before they are widely available.

The primary goal in Multiple Sclerosis Research is to prevent acute multiple sclerosis [MS] relapses, ultimately to prevent the progression of this neurologic disorder.
Multiple Sclerosis Research has advanced significantly with the availability of new oral treatments over the past few years. These advances are continuing to focus on our primary goal of preventing acute multiple sclerosis relapses. We continue to do research on the new oral treatments in an effort to find the most efficacious dosages and method of administering these medications. We are also working on new progressive concepts to block an acute attack through the use of monoclonal antibodies. We are researching ways to have your own immune system combat this neurologic disorder.
