If you go to the site, and look at the pdf, it shows the breakdown of the original 13.
One of the 13 quit. I have a hell of a time reading all this stuff. It gets jumbled now so if I miss it sorry. Hopefully that goes away as well.
12 of the 13 chosen were woman. The 13 was a woman. 6 of the 13 were RRMS. The rest were SPMS.
The data directly shows a correlation between age, and disease duration. The people with RRMS (activity on MRI) showed the best EDSS improvements while only one of the SPMS showed any. Also it made me happy to see that a good deal of the people were only reporting at 6 or 12 months, not even the full 24 months.
Right now I hear a bell going off too. Sucks I agree but explains the protocol for sure.
So from what I can tell, I got nothing to loose but my life.
I'm being over dramatic lol
