EDMONTON, Oct. 6 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - BioMS Medical Corp. (TSX: MS), a leading developer in the treatment of multiple sclerosis (MS), today announced that the independent Data Safety Monitoring Board (DSMB) for the Company's phase II MINDSET-01 trial of dirucotide (MBP8298) in patients with relapsing-remitting MS has completed a safety analysis and recommended that the trial continue as per the protocol.

This was the sixth of several regularly scheduled reviews by the DSMB that will occur over the duration of the trial. The purpose of the DSMB is to provide objective, independent safety monitoring of the trial.

MINDSET-01 Trial
