    Seems they finished the 2B trial enrollment last May. The above article also cites secondary progressive MS.

    I always take Wikipedia with a grain of salt but it looks like you can get it now since you finished a trial.

    Yes I know that I get the drug soon, going for the blood draw in July however ... My question is, is there anyone enrolled in the phase II experiencing similar. been in the emergency room 3 times with extreme leg pain, back pain, using a cane fultime. Fatigue cut my work days down to 3 days a week. Not teing to complane. The clinical trials have to prove that with the drug you get better and without it you get worse.

    I am sorry that I did not see your post until just now. I have spent quite a bit of time following multiple sclerosis and particularly vaccination therapy. You are the first person who has asked if about relapse after the trial. If you get any information, that would be very interesting.
