I finally moved daclizumab from phase 2 to phase 3 based on the post from Frank a few days ago. It's still in a phase 2 trial, but I figured I just move it into phase 3.

Is there anything else you can share on this study - I am being considered as a canidate as I type and am cautiously optomistic!

Sorry, I don't really know any more. All I've seen are the news articles, based on this press release:

I removed BCX-4208 from the phase 1 list because there is no indication that they are testing on MS patients right now and it is being tested on people with gout, which suggests to me it won’t be helpful in MS, since low uric acid is seen in some MS patients, whereas gout is a problem with high uric acid levels.

I just took a hatchet to the phase 1 list. If anybody wants the gory details, they are here: http://mspipeline.wordpress.com/category/updates/

I added AIN457 (Novartis) to the phase 2 list based on this clinicaltrials.gov entry:

I added BIIB033 (Anti-Lingo) to the phase 1 list based on a post from ElMarino. The post cites a Dow Jones article. The trial is also now listed in clinicaltrials.gov

(5R)-5-Hydroxytriptolide (LLDT-8 ), a novel triptolide derivative, prevents experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis via inhibiting T cell activation.

A novel triptolide derivative (5R)-5-hydroxytriptolide (LLDT-8 ) has been shown to have potent immunosuppressive activities. Here LLDT-8 was evaluated in experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE), the model of multiple sclerosis (MS).

LLDT-8 reduced the incidence and severity of EAE, which was associated with the inhibition of the MOG 35-55 lymphocyte recall response, anti-MOG 35-55 T cell responses, interleukin (IL)-2 and interferon (IFN)-gamma production. In vitro, LLDT-8 inhibited primary T cells proliferation, division, IL-2 and IFN-gamma production stimulated with anti-CD3/28.

These findings highlight the fact that LLDT-8 prevents EAE by suppressing T cell proliferation and activation, with a potential for treatment of MS.

Man, I really wish someone would pursue the Triptolide angle. A naturally occurring compound that targets the ever mentioned IL-2. I'd be tempted to order it from China but it is highly toxic as evidenced by its comically horrifying nicknames: "Walk Seven Steps and Die Vine" and "Intestine Breaking Plant" 8O

Rainer, yeah, I don't like the sounds of those nicknames. I'm happy to wait for some pharmaceutical derivative that would be safer. Maybe, "walk seven steps and stop for a little rest".
