  Purpose
Trichuris suis ova (TSO) is a probiotic treatment based on the hygiene hypothesis, that has proven safe and effective in autoimmune inflammatory bowel disease. Clinical trails indicate that helminth infections have an immunomodulatory effect in multiple sclerosis as well. Investigators hypothesize that TSO® 2500 eggs given oral every 2 weeks for 12 months is - due to its immunomodulatory and antiinflammatory effect - in recurrent remittent multiple sclerosis and clinically isolated syndrome significantly more effective than an oral placebo treatment as assed by new T2 lesions in cerebral magnetic resonance imaging and clinical examination.

Condition Intervention Phase

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double (Participant, Investigator)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Trichuris Suis Ova (TSO)in Recurrent Remittent Multiple Sclerosis and Clinically Isolated Syndrome - A Monocentric, Prospective, Randomized, Double-blind and Placebo-controlled Phase 2 Trial

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Cumulative number of new T2 hyperintensive in cerebral magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) [ Time Frame: after 12 months of treatment ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • reduction NAA/Cr-ratio in MR-spectroscopy [ Time Frame: after 12 month of treatment ]
  • Number of new Gadolinium lesions in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) cerebral magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) [ Time Frame: after 12 months of treatment ]
  • Volume of new T2 hyperintensive in cerebral magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) [ Time Frame: after 12 months of treatment ]
  • Number of relapes, proression of diability measured in EDSS (Expanded Disability Status Scale) and MSFC (Multiple Sclerosis Functional Composite), [ Time Frame: after 12 months of treatment ]
  • Number of Participants with Adverse Events [ Time Frame: participants will be followed for the duration of the study and have every 3 month planed visits. ]

Estimated Enrollment: 50
Study Start Date: September 2012
Estimated Study Completion Date: June 2017
Estimated Primary Completion Date: December 2016 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Drug: Trichuris suis ova
Experimental: Trichuris suis ova (TSO) 2500 eggs every 2 weeks for 12 months
Drug: Trichuris suis ova
Trichuris suis ova 2500 eggs every 2 weeks
Other Name: TSO
Placebo Comparator: Placebo
Drug: Placebo, fluid every 2 weeks
Drug: Trichuris suis ova
Trichuris suis ova 2500 eggs every 2 weeks
Other Name: TSO

Detailed Description:

TSO has an impact on the Th1-Th2 balance and effects Il-10 producing B-cells, mechanisms that result in an antiinflammatory effect.

A 12 month treatmet with TSO is safe and well-tolerated
