Happy New Year everyone... i think!

FTY 720/Fingolimod for Primary Progressive Trial

A little more detail obtained from my research nurse Friday: Three-Five year study, placebo vs. 1.25 mg. The initial screening was described to me and sounds just like what Carolew posted previously for her extension phase. One week of visits to include eyes, pulmonary function, heart function, dermatology, baseline MRI, baseline blood work. I will have to get all tests done with doctors near the MS clinic who have agreed to see patients in this ...
