Further study details as provided by Elan Pharmaceuticals:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To determine the safety and tolerability of ELND002 including the identification of dose-limiting toxicity(ies) (DLT) and determination of the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) in patients with multiple sclerosis (MS). [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Assessment of PK and PD measures of ELND002 (including but not limited to Cmax, Tmax, T1/2, AUC) [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]
    Measurement of drug concentration, alpha 4 receptor saturation, soluble VCAM and MADCAM.

  • Assessment of the cumulative number and volume of Gd-enhancing T1-weighed MRI brain lesions [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]
  • Reduction in rate of clinical relapses. [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]
