The Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Center at UMass Memorial participates in many clinical trials to evaluate the effectiveness of drugs and treatments for MS. Currently, it is the site of several clinical trials involving patients with relapsing, remitting and primary progressive MS. In partnership with UMass Medical School, we are involved in clinical trials to prevent the future worsening of MS and to improve the quality of life of our patients.
Along with clinical trials, we are also involved in several clinical research studies, which are aimed at finding the cause or causes of MS. These studies generally require only one clinic visit, and may allow family members to participate by donating blood and filling out questionnaires.
For information on any of these trials, please call 508-856-5006 and ask for Carolyn Griffin, RN, CCRP, MSCN.
