Welcome to Aqualane Clinical Research’s Multiple Sclerosis Research Program
Hello and thank you for visiting our dedicated research page on Multiple Sclerosis (MS). In our beautiful Southwest Florida community, we’re deeply committed to advancing our understanding of MS and its various forms, including Non-Relapsing Secondary Progressive, Primary Progressive, Secondary Progressive, Progression Relapsing, and Relapsing Remitting MS.
Exploring the Spectrum of Multiple Sclerosis
Multiple Sclerosis is a complex and often unpredictable disease, with symptoms and progression varying significantly from one person to another. Our research endeavors to explore this diversity, understanding each form of MS in depth to improve diagnosis, treatment, and patient care.
Join Our Efforts in Understanding MS
We invite you to participate in our studies, whether you’re newly diagnosed, have been living with MS for some time, or are a caregiver. Our current research areas include:
- Non-Relapsing Secondary Progressive MS: Understanding the transition from relapsing-remitting and focusing on slowing progression.
- Primary Progressive MS: Exploring treatments and management strategies for this less common form of MS.
- Secondary Progressive MS: Aiming to understand the progression and developing interventions to improve quality of life.
- Progression Relapsing MS: Investigating this rare form of MS, characterized by clear relapses with or without recovery.
- Relapsing Remitting MS: Focusing on the most common form of MS, exploring new therapies to manage relapses and remission phases.

What are Clinical Research Trials for Multiple Sclerosis?
Clinical research trials for Multiple Sclerosis (MS) are comprehensive studies designed to test new treatments, such as medications, therapies, or diagnostic tools, in individuals to assess their safety and efficacy.
Who Can Participate in These Trials?
Eligible participants typically include individuals diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, those at risk of developing MS, or healthy volunteers. Specific criteria for participation vary depending on the particular study.
Why Participate in a Clinical Trial?
Participation in a clinical trial aids in advancing medical research that could lead to innovative treatments for MS. Participants might also gain access to new therapies before they become widely available.
How Are Participant Safety and Privacy Protected?
The safety of participants is paramount. These trials adhere to strict ethical standards and regulatory guidelines. Privacy is ensured through confidentiality agreements and secure management of personal data.
What Happens During a Trial?
Each trial has different procedures, but common elements include regular health evaluations, monitoring of MS symptoms, and administration of the study treatment or placebo. Participants receive detailed information before the trial commences.
