Allright everybody, it is time for a team effort.
This is MS would like to pull together (and maintain) a document showing every drug that is currently in clinical trials for the treatment of Multiple Sclerosis (or its effects, such as fatigue), what phase it is in, who makes it, main mode of action, preliminary results, etc.
While we can get quite far ourselves, this seemed like a great opportunity to get the community involved. We hope that many of you will contribute to this project-- if you think of it like a scavenger hunt, it could be quite fun. Of course, there are shortcuts to getting a lot of the information at once, such as locating other documents that attempt to do something similar. However, we are not satisfied with what is out there today and we know we can do better. Our aim is to create a resource that is more thorough, easier to read and understand, and makes it clear where to find out more information (such as how to participate in a given trial...).
Furthermore, we know that the way to achieve that is to involve our brilliant, tenacious members.
Any help any person can provide will be greatly appreciated.
A good template to use is as follows, but feel free to present data in any way you want. We will take all the inputs here, add whatever is missing, and produce a document we will actively maintain.
The message of this project is HOPE. There is an incredible amount of research going on!
