Clinical Trial Testing New Multiple Sclerosis Treatment to Launch in Buffalo

Additional independent researchers from University at Buffalo will participate in the evaluation and follow-up of study patients. An independent Data Safety Monitoring Board (DSMB) will ensure the safety and effectiveness of the study on an ongoing basis.

The procedures, scheduled for June 29 and 30, 2010, will be performed by Drs. Siddiqui and Levy at Kaleida Health’s Millard Fillmore Gates Hospital in Buffalo, New York.

The treatment will be blinded in such a way that neither the patient undergoing the procedure nor the clinicians evaluating the patient will be aware which procedure was performed.

If results suggest an appropriate safety profile and preliminary effectiveness, then researchers will approach the University at Buffalo Institutional Review Board (IRB) for an extension of the protocol to study a larger number of patients in order to convincingly prove or disprove a causal relationship between CCSVI and MS.

Multiple sclerosis is estimated to affect more than 400,000 people in the United States and over 2 million people worldwide.
