I have been evaluated by their MS Clinic and was given information Refib & Copxone. They also suggested to consider applying for an opening in the FTY720 phase III trials. I have the applications and information and was told I met all initial qualifications but would need to get initial approval first by their board then Novartis approval after testing completion. I guess they are interested as I am newly diagnosed and to date, untreated with anything. As I am a newbie and have no available local support (to my knowledge), does anyone have any suggestions? This decision is rather confusing and intimidating. Anything such as suggestions or anything else will be appreciated.

I am in that FTY720 trial and have completed one year of it. It is after 2 years that you get offered the real medication. I don't even know what dose they will offer me but the neuro said that they will not leave me without it.
So far, so good. No side effects at all. No great gains either but no relapses. I could be on the placebo arm of the study.
Take care all, Carole
