Adeona Pharmaceuticals, Inc. announced that the Company's drug candidate, Trimesta™ (oral estriol), will be utilized in a new Phase II clinical trial to evaluate its potential therapeutic effect on cognitive dysfunction observed in female multiple sclerosis (MS) patients. The Skirball Foundation and Adeona have pledged to equally support this clinical trial led by Rhonda Voskuhl, M.D., Director, University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) Multiple Sclerosis Program, Department of Neurology. The study, which focuses on cognition loss in MS patients, also received contributions from numerous supporters, such as the Sherak Family Fund, the Gustafson Fund, and the Diamont family.

Shortest joke: "We may not be able to cure MS but we can manage its symptoms."
