The study

This is the official link for the study where you can get some info and apply.

http://www.msclinicaltrials.com/index.html

This is another info page which is a great place to search for clinical trials.

http://www.clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT00355134?term=novartis+AND+fty720&rank=12&show_locs=Y#locn

The trial is still taking applications. It is a 2 yr study. All medical stuff is covered.

For those that are interested but dont want to do the trial here are 2 articles that both list a 2009 date for filing for Novartis and this drug. Novartis is the company that owns and will sell this drug. The US gov has already said it will fast track these drugs which mean 6 months are less approval. So that means sometime in 2010 this should be available to the general public. Might want to ask you doctor about this so they are aware so you can get it as soon as it hits the market.
