Are you affected by Relapsing Forms of Multiple Sclerosis?
We are carrying out an important clinical trial of a new treatment for people with RFMS. This is a validation study to check that a particular imaging technique works.
There are no expected benefits to you from participation in this study, it is purely for research purposes. However, by taking part in this study, you may be helping future patients by contributing to medical knowledge about RFMS.
To be eligible for this trial you need to be:
Diagnosed with relapsing-remitting MS (RRMS) or relapsing secondary progressive MS (SPMS), known as relapsing forms of MS (RFMS).

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), Positron Emission Tomography (PET) and Computed Tomography (CT) scans will be taken at various times. The PET and CT scans will be collected by a single instrument during the same imaging session and henceforth this procedure will be called PET scan in this form.
If you are included in this study you will have approximately 4 outpatients visits to the study site or imaging center.
