I have taken the blood test and I will find out soon if I am eligible for this drug. There are few options for SPMS but this one seems promising for a subgroup of patients. At the hospital, the nurse told me that two patients got worse, two had an improvement on their EDSS score by 1. The problem is that the nurse does not know who is on the placebo and who isn't. That five year study looks incredible but we need to complete this phase III study before passing judgment on the drug's efficacy for SPMS. Also note that BioMS is enrolling patients with RRMS for a new study. Stay tuned.
