    Cumulative number of GAD-enhancing lesions by MRI at months 3, 4, 5, and 6


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in number of T2 lesions from baseline [ Time Frame: Months 3, 4, 5, and 6 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Cumulative number of new or newly enlarged T2 lesions over 6 months of treatment

  • Brain volume [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Brain volume by MRI over 6 months of treatment

  • T2 lesion volume [ Time Frame: 6 month ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    T2 lesion volume by MRI over 6 months of treatment

  • Annualized Relapse Rate [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Annualized Relapse Rate over 6 months

  • Expanded Disability Status Scale (EDSS), change from baseline [ Time Frame: 3, 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Progression of disability as assessed by the Expanded Disability Status Scale at months 3 and 6.

  • Multiple Sclerosis Functional Composite, change from baseline [ Time Frame: 3, 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Males or females, aged between 18 and 50 years.
  2. Diagnosis of RR-MS according to McDonald 2010 diagnostic criteria with a prior brain MRI that demonstrates lesions consistent with RRMS, both within the past year.
  3. No evidence of relapse during the 60 days prior to enrollment.
  4. EDSS score of 0-5 at screening.
  5. Women of childbearing potential who have a negative pregnancy test (serum HCG) at screening.
  6. Men or women of reproductive potential who commit to use adequate contraception during the study and for 1 month following the last day of treatment.
  7. Subjects must be capable of understanding the purpose and risks of the study and provide written, informed consent.

Exclusion Criteria:

  5. Significant organ dysfunction, including cardiac, renal (eGFR ≤ 60 ml/min.), liver, central nervous system, pulmonary, vascular, gastrointestinal, endocrine, or metabolic (e.g., creatinine ≥ 1.6 mg/dL; ALT or AST ≥ 1.5x the upper limit of normal), history of myocardial infarction, congestive heart failure, or arrhythmias within 6 months prior to enrollment.
  6. Steroid therapy within 60 days prior to enrollment, with the exception of corticosteroids or ACTH for relapse treatment during the course of the study.

  11. Known or suspected current or past alcohol or drug abuse within one year prior to enrollment.
  12. Any medical, psychiatric or other condition that could result in a subject not being able to comply with protocol requirements.
