We would just like to thank you for your help in getting a new trial for progressive MS funded. This is the frequent lumbar puncture study we have been lobbying for. The study will test a neuroprotective compound in MSers with SPMS. The study is being supported by the NMSS (USA) and represents follow-on funding from our work done as part of Promise 2010.
Without your help we never have got it funded; you provide the necessary data to convince the reviewers’ that MSers are prepared to have multiple lumbar punctures as part of a clinical trial. This study will involve a London-based consortium and will be done under the umbrella of UCL Partners; essentially the MS Teams of Barts and The London, Queen Square and the Royal Free Hospital.
For those of you wanting to know more about the study design please look at the following YouTube video:
