Summary

The purpose of the study is to evaluate the effectiveness and safety of CNTO 1275 in patients with Multiple Sclerosis

Description

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a life-long disease that usually starts in young adults. In MS, inflammation and damage to nerve cells occur in the brain and spinal cord. Symptoms of MS are quite variable and may range from being mild to severe and from short to long lasting. People with MS may have a wide variety of symptoms ranging from mild to disabling. Some of thesymptoms of MS include visual disturbances such as double vision, weakness in arms or legs,difficulty with coordination, fatigue, changes in sensations such as numbness and tingling, or difficulties with concentration or memory.The drug being tested in this research study is an antibody called CNTO 1275. Antibodies are natural substances made by the body that stick to and react with other substances in the body that may cause diseases. The body makes antibodies mainly to fight infections. CNTO 1275 is an antibody that has been manufactured in the laboratory. In the test tube, CNTO 1275 sticks to and blocks the activity of a naturally occurring substance in the body called interleukin 12 (IL-12).Higher than normal levels of IL-12 have been found in people who have MS. CNTO 1275 has been tested in animals with a condition similar to MS. In those animals, IL-12 was over-produced.Animals treated with CNTO 1275 showed decreased symptoms of the condition.The purpose of this study is to better understand the safety and effectiveness of CNTO 1275 in people who have relapsing-remitting MS

Patients will receive subcutaneous injections of 30, 100, 200 mg of CNTO 1275 or placebo at Weeks 0, 1, 2, 3, 7, 11, 15, and 19 or 100 mgs at weeks 0,1,2,3,11 and 19 and placebo at wks 7 and 15.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A form of multiple sclerosis characterized by a progressive deterioration in neurologic function which is in contrast to the more typical relapsing remitting form. If the clinical course is free of distinct remissions, it is referred to as primary progressive multiple sclerosis. When the progressive decline is punctuated by acute exacerbations, it is referred to as progressive relapsing multiple sclerosis. The term secondary progressive multiple sclerosis is used when relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis evolves into the chronic progressive form. (From Ann Neurol 1994;36 Suppl:S73-S79; Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp903-914)

A non-glycosylated form of interferon beta-1 that has a serine at position 17. It is used in the treatment of both RELAPSING-REMITTING MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS and CHRONIC PROGRESSIVE MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS.

An autoimmune disorder mainly affecting young adults and characterized by destruction of myelin in the central nervous system. Pathologic findings include multiple sharply demarcated areas of demyelination throughout the white matter of the central nervous system. Clinical manifestations include visual loss, extra-ocular movement disorders, paresthesias, loss of sensation, weakness, dysarthria, spasticity, ataxia, and bladder dysfunction. The usual pattern is one of recurrent attacks followed by partial recovery (see MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS, RELAPSING-REMITTING), but acute fulminating and chronic progressive forms (see MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS, CHRONIC PROGRESSIVE) also occur. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p903)

The most common clinical variant of MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS, characterized by recurrent acute exacerbations of neurologic dysfunction followed by partial or complete recovery. Common clinical manifestations include loss of visual (see OPTIC NEURITIS), motor, sensory, or bladder function. Acute episodes of demyelination may occur at any site in the central nervous system, and commonly involve the optic nerves, spinal cord, brain stem, and cerebellum. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp903-914)

Multiple protein bands serving as markers of specific ANTIBODIES and detected by ELECTROPHORESIS of CEREBROSPINAL FLUID or serum. The bands are most often seen during inflammatory or immune processes and are found in most patients with MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS.
