avoiding IPIRs with copaxone

I have mostly been a lurker on this board, but I do post now and then. I have been on copaxone for 13 months now, and just got the results of my 1 year brain MRI.

Improved Diagnosis of MS with MEG

I am a participant in a research study sponsored by Orasi Medical, Inc. Title of the study is: "Improved Diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis using Magnetoencephalography (MEG) and the Synchronous Neural Interaction" The machine used looks kind of like one of the old conical shaped hair dryers.

30 days vs 90 days between blood draws

Can anyone of you answer this question. The waiting period between blood draws for the TERMS study was 30 days and the waiting period is 90 days for the OLTERMS study. Why?

Second question, how many have not tested positive on redraw twice, other than me?
