Safety, Tolerability, and Effectiveness of CGP77116 in Patients With Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
Launched by NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF NEUROLOGICAL DISORDERS AND STROKE (NINDS) · Nov 3, 1999
Current as of November 28, 2023
This trial will evaluate safety, tolerability and effect on cranial magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and immune response of CGP 77116 in patients with the demyelinating autoimmune disease, multiple sclerosis (MS). The purpose of the trial is to assess whether CGP 77116 modifies inflammatory disease activity as measured by MRI and immunological techniques, and to facilitate dose selection for future pivotal trials in progressive and relapsing-remitting MS. CGP 77116 is an altered peptide ligand (APL) designed around an immunodominant epitope of human myelin basic protein (MBP) corresponding...
- Patients with clinically definite and/or laboratory-supported definite diagnosis of MS.

- No evidence of relapse for at least 30 days prior to entry.
- One or more relapses in the 2 years preceding randomization.
- Expanded Disability Status Scale (EDSS) score less than or equal to 7.0.
