Although some may be familiar with the purpose of clinical trials, others may not know or understand the benefits of these studies. Clinical trials are scientific studies that test the safety and effectiveness of new treatments for diseases, including MS. They often use patient participants; are conducted by universities, MS clinics, and neurologists; and must follow FDA-approved protocol so that all treatment is provided and all data is collected uniformly. No drug can be approved by the FDA until there is clinical trial proof of their safety and effectiveness.
The major advances in the treatment of MS in the last 15-20 years have only been because of data provided through clinical trials, which is why these studies remain so significant for MS research.
