Drug trials in secondary progressive MS

Nice to see some drug trials for secondary progressive MS. These are to see if these agents might be ‘ neuro-protective’ – ie, help to save nerve cells, in progressive MS. All drugs have potential side-effects, but amiloride is a fairly old, well known drug that’s been used for a long time for people with a heart condition.

Here’s the web page. Obviously, you need to get really well-informed, and have a very serious discussion about the pros and cons of the treatment and being on a trial, but here’s the website if you’re interested.
