Clinical Trials

The NeuroMedical Center is dedicated to the advancement of new and better treatment strategies for our patients and all who suffer from neurological disorders. Our Clinical Research Program located on the 4th floor of The NeuroMedical Center Clinic is actively pursuing accelerated research that may eventually lead to new, or more effective treatments for neurological disease.

ENROLLING TRIALS AT THE NEUROMEDICAL CENTER

We are currently recruiting for the following clinical studies. For more information on these studies, or to find out how to enroll, please contact our study coordinator, JoLynn Landry at (225) 768-2040 or by emailing jlandry@intrafusion.com.

1. Multiple Sclerosis – Novartis COMB157G2301 (ASCLEPIOS I)

Study to evaluate if an injectable study drug is more effective at treating relapsing MS than an oral medication that is currently being used in treatment.

Overview:

Participants will be treated with both a daily pill and a monthly injection (following three initial weekly injections). Participants will receive either the investigational treatment, or the comparing treatment. Participants receiving the study drug will take a daily placebo pill with no active ingredient. Participants receiving the comparing treatment will receive monthly placebo injections that do not contain an active ingredient. Neither you, nor your doctor, will know which treatment you are receiving. If you qualify and choose to join the study, you will be asked to participate for a maximum of 2½ years.

You may be eligible to participate if you:

  • Are 18 to 55 years of age
  • Have been diagnosed with relapsing multiple sclerosis
  • Have had at least one MS relapse during the previous year, or two MS relapses in the previous two years OR have had an MRI within the last year that showed disease activity

HOW OUR PATIENTS BENEFIT IN CLINICAL TRIALS

Our patients benefit from participating in our clinical trials which supports our developing research. The clinical trials at the NeuroMedical Center in Baton Rouge offer participants the opportunity to receive the latest developments and therapies only available in trial studies while they actively contribute to medical research. Participants are closely monitored by and provided care from a group of experienced physicians, lab technicians and health professionals. Every volunteer is vital for the continuation of our neurological studies and our ongoing efforts for more information to improve medical care. People who take part in clinical studies gain more insight and knowledge of their condition and treatment. To most of our participants, the new knowledge gives them a lot of hope for future recovery.
