Our clinic is involved in several clinical trials. Participating in one of these studies is a very valuable contribution to the advancement of new treatments in MS.
Investigator initiated studies:
Micro RNA's in CSF as predictors of cognitive impairment in MS.
- Micro RNA's are very small ribonucleic acid (RNA) molecules. Large RNA molecules transfer the information coded in the DNA into proteins. Micro RNA's regulate this process and also serve as a communication network between cells.
- This study is looking for patients with MS with and without cognitive impairment who are willing to undergo a spinal tap. We are using special needles that cause minimal trauma and thus have reduced risk of headaches after the spinal tap.
- We will be comparing the levels of micro RNA's to see if they differ between impaired and normal subjects.
There are no open industry-sponsored studies at this time
