  Limitations and Caveats
  Hide Limitations and Caveats

Limitations of the study, such as early termination leading to small numbers of participants analyzed and technical problems with measurement leading to unreliable or uninterpretable data
The trial was closed prematurely for futility, because pre-determined interim analysis demonstrated that selected dosing led to <50% depletion of B cells from the brain/spinal cord. Therefore, only 5 patients per group finished trial.
