This study evaluates the effect of cryopreserved autologous adult bone-marrow mesenchymal stromal cells (BM-MSC) in patients with active multiple sclerosis, compared to placebo. Patients ...
Multiple sclerosis is an autoimmune disease. We are studying whether high dose chemotherapy and autologous stem cell transplant can replace the autoreactive immune system and if this redu...
This is a 1 year study to evaluate the efficacy, safety, and tolerability of Tovaxin T cell therapy in subjects with a clinically isolated syndrome (CIS) and relapse-remitting multiple scl...
This is a patient-sponsored study that evaluates the safety and efficacy of reduced-intensity immunoablation followed by a single dose autologous hematopoetic stem cell transplantation in ...
Purpose of study is to determine safety and efficacy of use of autologous Adipose-Derived cellular Stromal Vascular Fraction (AD-cSVF) suspended in Normal Saline and delivered via intravas...
Infusion-associated reactions (IARs) occur in >90% patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) treated with alemtuzumab. We aimed to study the frequency of IARs at 2 sites using 5 days of steroids (1g/day o...
The risk-benefit ratio of continuing immunomodulating disease-modifying therapy (DMT) in older multiple sclerosis (MS) patients is unknown.
In the majority of relapsing multiple sclerosis patients, the disease can be quite easily controlled by already available, approved therapies. There are, however, some aggressive cases who continue to...
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is one of the most important demyelinating diseases that affects the central nervous system. Its treatment often involves a long-term disease modifying therapy. According to so...
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)
Use of any infusion therapy on an ambulatory, outpatient, or other non-institutionalized basis.
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.
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.
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.
