Q: I live on Long Island and would be interested in participating in a clinical trial for Anti-Lingo. I hear that such a study is being done this year at Stony Brook University. I currently suffer from the early phases of secondary progressive MS, having been diagnosed in 2006 with Relapsing Remitting MS. I am a 55 year-old male, ambulatory (although I do walk with the assistance of a cane. Thank you.
A: ClinicalTrials.gov and CenterWatch are good places to check regarding clinical trials. After checking these sites, we didn't see any trials for anti-lingo in the Long Island area, so we contacted Stony Brook University directly and they were not aware of any either. Finally, we contacted Biogen-Idec and they said to speak with your physician about any possible future trials.
