I thought your members may be interested to know about Innate Immunotherapeutics Limited who have developed a potential treatment for SPMS and the phase IIB clinical trial that the company will undertake 2Q 2014 at clinical sites around Australia once the current $12 million fundraising is completed.

Further information and company background can be obtained from the website at http://www.innateimmunotherapeutics.com
