All-Island Multiple Sclerosis Research Study Launched

Irish life sciences company, Genomics Medicine Ireland (GMI) have announced an important scientific research study aimed at unlocking the mystery of the genetic and lifestyle factors that contribute to MS. Volunteers with MS currently being treated at St. Vincent’s University Hospital, Tallaght Hospital, Cork University Hospital or Altnagelvin Hospital in Derry are invited to participate in the study which aims to identify these factors in order to find better treatments, diagnoses and, ultimately, a cure for MS. GMI also hopes to rollout additional study sites around the country in future.  

MS Ireland welcomes this exciting new study as an opportunity to further understand the causes and mechanisms of MS, which will hopefully lead to better management and treatment of the disease in the future. Further information on the study is available in the third issue of our research eZine

Interested volunteers should speak with their clinical team at one of the current research sites for more information.
