Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis Study

Now Open in Raleigh

Now Enrolling

Primary progressive multiple sclerosis (PPMS) is a form of the chronic disease multiple sclerosis (MS). Most people with MS start out with a clinical course characterized by episodes or attacks (relapses) of neurologic dysfunction, which occur over many years. This is called the relapsing-remitting phase. Unlike the relapsing-remitting MS, symptoms of PPMS get steadily worse, and remissions generally do not occur.

Limited approved MS and PPMS therapies are currently available. Meridian is conducting a Phase 3 clinical trial for an investigational medication for people with PPMS.
