Research Database For Regenerative MS Therapies
We are at the dawn of a new era in MS research.
Therapies that are regenerative, even curative, are now in clinical trials.
Join the SWiMS Research Study Group on Facebook for discussion of the Research Database.
SWiMS is tracking over 100 therapies in our Database. Full access to detailed Research Profiles on these therapies is available, and several are found below.
The SWiMS Monitor – Regenerative MS Trial Finder
Column 1 – Overall Score reflects the most important criteria to SWiMS members – when can I get it?
Phase 4 is when it can be prescribed by your doctor.
Column 7 – Estimated year phase 4 is reached and prescribing begins. This is especially important to those with advanced disability or older age that excludes them from participating in a trial.
For those who do meet inclusion criteria, you can apply for these trials now.
The Research Profiles are designed to ensure you are well informed before discussing it with your doctor. Please do not show your doctor this entire Trial Finder list, they may not have time to go through it. First do your own research, to see if there is a trial you can enroll in.
Step 1 – In the SWiMS Monitor – Regenerative Trial Finder, find a trial for your MS type that is Recruiting, then click the title of the Research Profile.
Step 2 – Review the trial details, starting with location. Is it close enough that you can get to it? Do you meet the inclusion criteria?
Step 3 – Go to the Contact section and confer with the trial coordinator to confirm you fit the trial criteria.
Step 4 – Now you are prepared to discuss this with your doctor. Feel free to print or send the link to the Research Profile to your doctor.
What if you don’t qualify for a clinical trial?
SWiMS is also profiling therapies that are in trials, but are also available either as an off-label prescription, or over-the-counter supplements. The Metformin and NAC profiles below are examples of therapies you can discuss trying with your doctor.
Compare results to the Research Database to see if trials are regenerative.
Metformin is available in clinical trials or off-label prescription. Share this profile with your doctor to see if it is appropriate for you.
