We are delighted to announce that the first #MND clinical drug trial in Scotland, in over 20 years, has launched! 👏 MND Scotland is committing over £1.5 million into bringing MND drug trials to Scotland, with #MIROCALS being the first investment. mndscotland.org.uk/latest/news/fi…
#MIROCALS is a clinical trial currently taking place in the UK and France. It is testing a new potential therapy for #ALS, the most common form of #MND. The drug being tested is called Interleukin-2, which is already used for some types of cancer.
Now recruiting people with #MND in #Glasgow, who meet the criteria, the study will focus on types of immune cells in the blood, which are capable of influencing the speed at which #ALS progresses. Find out more about the trial here: mndscotland.org.uk/mirocals
We are committed to bringing safe and effective #MND clinical drugs trials to Scotland as soon as possible. We couldn't do this without our amazing supporters. Thank you! Read more: bit.ly/2MpUNP7 #CureMND 💙
