A board to discuss future MS therapies in early stage (Phase I or II) trials.

Antisense Therapeutics

Antisense Therapeutics were trialling an oral drug which targeted the same protein as Tysabri. The company stopped the trial following the Tysabri fiasco. The company has applied to restart the trial (may need to add to Dignan's list of approval given).

I have no idea what Padma28 is but it seems to have some benefit for chronic progressive ms sufferers.

PS I found some more information - it's a Tibetan medicine.

It seems to consist of a vast range of ingredients - as our nutrition expert Melody might translate for us.
