NINDS is seeking persons who may have multiple sclerosis for participation in a research study to investigate the cause and response to treatment of multiple sclerosis and other inflammatory conditions of the central nervous system. The study will include medical evaluation, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and bloodwork. Other tests and procedures may be required during the study. This study does not provide treatment. Participants remain under the care of their own physicians during this study.
Participants must be 18 to 70 years of age with clinical symptoms of multiple sclerosis or a MRI suggestive of the disorder.
The study will take place at the NIH Clinical Center in Bethesda, MD. There is no cost for participation or for any study-related tests. Transportation reimbursement will be available as needed.
