MS Clinical Trials

You Can Become Part of the Solution

If no one with MS volunteered to participate in a clinical trial, there would be no treatment options for you! It took patients before you who were bold, heroic, and fed up with suffering with MS to help researchers develop therapies that help those who have been diagnosed with MS live productive lives.

Become part of the MS treatment solution by participating in a clinical trial at The Boster Center.

For more information about clinical trials, listen to an interview from Real Talk MS – Everything You Need to Know About Clinical Trials with Dr. Aaron Boster.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the symptoms of multiple sclerosis?

Multiple sclerosis symptoms can vary from person to person, but common ones include muscle weakness or stiffness, balance problems, vision problems, trouble walking, numbness or tingling in the body, fatigue, and memory loss. Some people also experience depression or mood changes.

Will there soon be a cure for multiple sclerosis?

While there is currently no cure for multiple sclerosis, research (like that being done at The Boster Center) is bringing us closer each day to more effective and longer-lasting treatments.

What is the latest research on multiple sclerosis?

Multiple sclerosis is a disease that affects the functioning of the brain and body. Recently, researchers have been looking into ways to treat the disease and delay disability progression. This includes trying different drugs, physical therapy, and lifestyle changes like diet and exercise. Researchers are also exploring the use of stem cell therapy to replace damaged cells in the brain and body, which could help improve symptoms of the disease.

What is a phase 1 clinical trial?

A phase 1 clinical trial is a research study that tests a new drug or treatment in people for the first time to evaluate its safety, determine a safe dosage range, and identify side effects. The Boster Center is currently conducting clinical trials for multiple sclerosis and other neurologic diseases.

What is a phase 2 clinical trial?

A phase 2 trial is a study of people to see how well a new drug works and to find out what side effects and safety risks it may have. This study is usually larger than a phase 1 trial and may involve hundreds of people.

What is a phase 3 clinical trial?

In a phase 3 clinical trial, the new drug or treatment is studied to determine if it works better than current treatments and to find out what side effects and safety risks it may have. Phase 3 trials are the last stage of testing in a drug's development process. These trials are usually the most important part of the drug development process.

What is a phase 3B clinical trial?

Like the phase 3 trial, the phase 3B clinical trial is a study in people to see if a new drug or treatment works better than current treatments and to find out what side effects and safety risks it may have. But at this phase of the study, the subject pool is generally much larger and may involve hundreds or even thousands of people.

Is there hope for MS?

Yes, there is hope for people with multiple sclerosis. With early diagnosis and the right treatments, people with MS can manage the symptoms of their disease and live active and fulfilling lives. There are new treatments being developed each day and clinical trials just like those being performed at The Boster Center, giving hope for even more advancements in the future.

Can stem cell treatment help MS?

Stem cell treatment is a type of scientific therapy that uses stem cells from the patient or from a donor to help repair damaged or destroyed cells in the body. For people with multiple sclerosis (MS), stem cell treatment can help replace damaged cells in the brain and can help reduce the symptoms of the disease.

What treatments are available for multiple sclerosis?
At this time, there is no known cure for MS; however, there are treatments that can be administered to help control symptoms of the disease. These treatments can include medicines, therapies, lifestyle changes, or surgery. These treatments have been effective in slowing the disease, reducing pain, and increasing mobility.

Treatment studies are currently underway at The Boster Center. To learn more, contact The Boster Center today at (614) 304-3444 or contactus@bosterms.

What causes multiple sclerosis?
MS is thought to be caused by a combination of genetic, environmental, and immunological factors. Specific genes may make people more likely to develop MS, as perhaps will certain environmental factors such as exposure to certain toxins. The immune system might also be involved, attacking the nerves and causing damage.
How is multiple sclerosis diagnosed?

Multiple sclerosis is usually diagnosed by a combination of physical exams and medical tests. Doctors may conduct blood tests, eye exams, and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans to look for specific changes in the brain and spinal cord. They might also look for changes in the nerve impulses sent from the brain to other parts of the body.

What are the long-term effects of multiple sclerosis?

Over time, the effects of MS can cause difficulties with walking, speaking, thinking, and more. It can also cause fatigue, pain, and emotional problems. In the long term, there's no cure, but treatments can help people with MS manage their symptoms and live a satisfying life.

What lifestyle changes can be made to help manage multiple sclerosis?

When you have multiple sclerosis, it's important to make some lifestyle changes to help you stay healthy. You should try to exercise regularly, eat a healthy diet, get enough sleep, and maintain a regular schedule. You should also avoid smoking, alcohol, caffeine, and other substances to help manage your symptoms. Lastly, make sure to talk to your doctor regularly and follow their advice.
