An Allergy Drug that is said to be of help to MS PatientsHow the trial went through with Clemastine?

There was a prearranged test about an OTC drug that may possibly save the lives of the people, especially those who are suffering from multiple sclerosis or MS. This news draws a lot of feedbacks from the readers simply because the drug wasn’t named yet. Now, the researchers have exposed themselves in public and the details about the trial were published at the, so that the drug will soon be out of the shell. The medication is named clemastine, which is also the same ingredient with that of the OTC allergy drug Tavist. It is Ari Green, who is the prime investigator has just said that this medication stayed out high while the screening is ongoing and while aiming to know the compounds that may boost the oligodendrocyte focused in myelinating activity.

It is the lack in this activity in multiple sclerosis that is said to leave the fibers of the nerves stripped out from the myelin sheaths that may lead to axonal impairment, nerve function loss and severe clinical disability.  The patients with reoccurring multiple sclerosis with minimal to moderate infirmity or EDSS may be asked to go through the study, because there is a need to enroll around 50 individuals for the said test. The random trial contains a cross over design with the patients getting placebo or clemastine drugs for three months & then the others are for two months.

The EDDSS progression in MS patients

The principal result measures may indicate tiredness, myelin water volume & magnetization transfer ratios & EDSS score progression as well. The security biomarkers lead the 2nd outcomes. The results must have been released this September. The design has raised some of the questions for the people involved, with around 2-3 main endpoints being clinical, tiredness and physical disability, while the 5 month trial started out and then the inclusion of the patients with around minimum baseline disability appears at slightest unbelievable. It might be hard to know the outcome if there is any.

It is truly valuable to know that exhaustion is just the safe endpoint too with possible efficacy result in patients with allergies; the drug may also bring them fatigue as well. Along the way, the focus is on the patients with reoccurring multiple sclerosis more than those with primary or secondary progressive multiple sclerosis case and that may seem needlessly restrictive. It might have thought that remyelinating the effects to the person might be at least discovered in the later part, if not very soon.  The presentation of ANA will happen this October and this is to hold the information that the trial may provide in just one shot testing if the clemastine will not cause remyelinating effects in living individuals. There will be a negative result if there are no funds that will be released for the 2nd try.
