INTERNATIONAL ADVISORY COMMITTEE ON CLINICAL TRIALS IN MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS

The International Advisory Committee on Clinical Trials in Multiple Sclerosis is jointly supported by the US National Multiple Sclerosis Society (NMSS) and the European Committee for Treatment and Research in Multiple Sclerosis (ECTRIMS).

The Committee works to provide perspective and guidance in areas of interest to planning and implementation of clinical trials for new agents for the treatment of multiple sclerosis. The Committee works as a whole, in international meetings and consensus-building activities, or through subcommittees and task forces on specific topics.

Historically, some of the Committee’s projects and publications of their outcomes have included:

 

Ongoing projects (2014-2015) include a full exploration of MS comorbidities and their impact on clinical studies and an international conference on cell based therapies for MS.
