Currently itis the site of several different clinical trials involving patients with Relapsing Remitting and Primary Progressive MS. We are involved in trials to prevent the future worsening of MS, and to improve the quality of life of our patients.
Along with clinical trials, we are also involved in several clinical research studies which are aimed atfinding the cause or causes of the MS. These studies generally require only one clinic visit and may allow family members to participate by donating blood and filling our questionnaires.
