  5. Clinical Trial: ASPIRE (Aspirin for Exercise in Multiple Sclerosis)

    ASPIRE is a clinical trial to investigate aspirin as a treatment to improve exercise performance in people with MS who experience overheating during exercise.
  6. Research Study: Mechanisms of Low Physical Work Capacity, Fatigue, and Reduced Mobility

    You are being asked to be a subject in a research study about blood flow regulation during exercise and how that may affect work capacity (the ability to perform exercise). This study will examine cardiac output (how much blood your heart can pump each minute) during a treadmi...
  7. Clinical Trial: Ocrelizumab in MS

    This study is measuring the long-term effectiveness of ocrelizumab in people with progressive  and relapsing MS with novel composite disability endpoints, including No Evidence of Progression and No Evidence of Progression or Active Disease, in addition to a wide range of pati...
  8. Clinical Trial: Multifaceted Fall Prevention Program in Non-Ambulatory People with MS

    The purpose of the proposed study is to examine the efficacy of a community-based rehabilitation educational intervention on management of falls in non-ambulatory individuals with MS (Multifaceted Fall Prevention Program, or MFPP) who use wheeled mobility devices. MFPP that ta...
  9. Clinical Trial: Effects of epidural and transcutaneous spinal stimulation

    Investigators are recruiting individuals with MS for a research study to compare the effects of epidural (invasive) and transcutaneous (non-invasive) spinal stimulation approaches to improve mobility. Participants will first undergo up to 3 experimental sessions with transcuta...
  10. Clinical Trial: Pear-006

    The ENABLE Study is evaluating an investigational digital intervention for people with relapsing MS who experience symptoms of depression. The intervention being evaluated in this study is downloaded to your mobile device and can be used to deliver treatment. It is a tool t...
