  • Female volunteers needed for estrogen/Copaxone clinical trial

    This new trial is enrolling. Women only (sorry gents). - Dave

    The National MS Society and the National Institutes of Health (NINDS) are funding a team of investigators at sixteen medical centers across the U.S. to conduct a two-year, placebo-controlled clinical trial testing treatment with the estrogen of pregnancy (estriol) in MS. All 150 women with relapsing-remitting MS will take Copaxone® (glatiramer acetate, Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd.) in combination with either oral estriol or oral placebo. Patients previously treated with an interferon or Copaxone® may be included.

    The estriol trial is taking place at sixteen medical centers across the U.S. Women between 18-50 who are diagnosed with relapsing remitting MS and are interested in participating in this clinical trial should contact the nearest site to discuss their eligibility:
