ponesimod (or gillenia) effects

I have been proposed to try to take part in ponesimod clinical trial, third phase (without placebo). Ponesimod is a drug made by Actellion, the Swiss pharmaceutical company. That is a drug close to gilenia and RPC1063. they all three sequester lymphocytes into lymph nodes.
