  4. IN PERSON Clinical Trials

    Clinical Trial: Copaxone plus Estriol

    A combination trial of Copaxone plus Estriol in relapsing-remitting Multiple Sclerosis. The purpose of this study is to determine if the use of oral Estriol in combination with Copaxone injections is safe; if the use of combination treatment causes a decrease in relapse rates; if there is more rapid improvement on brain MRI with the combination treatment; if there is an improvement in disability measures with the combination treatment.

  9. IN PERSON Research

    Research Study: Brain Plasticity

    Seeking patients to participate in a study to test for genes related to disease progression in MS. This is a NON-medication study and requires only one visit. Study participants will complete an MRI (without contrast), a blood-draw for genetic testing, a neurological exam, and brief questionnaires. Lebanon, NH
