This one is a clinical study being conducted by Biogen to evaluate the effectiveness of Tysabri in people with SPMS.
800 people are being recruited worldwide to participate in a double blind study (meaning some participants will receive Tysabri and some will receive a placebo and you won't be told which group you are in during the study).
The site has a list of USA cities enrolling participants.
Unfortunately you and I are beyond the age limit for the stem cell trial. I would be willing to do that one, because I think it holds a lot of promise. I have been saying that for years about stem cells being used to cure a number of serious diseases.
I sure hope the Tysabri trial for SPMS yields positive results. There needs to be more therapy options for SPMS and PPMS. I hope the Gilenya trial for PPMS works, too.
