A pharmaceutical/biotech company is in the process of developing a new potential multiple sclerosis (MS) therapy and will be hosting a small Patient/Care-partner Advisory Board meeting on Thursday, November 3, 2016 in Chicago, IL.

At this one-day meeting, people with a diagnosis of primary progressive multiple sclerosis (PPMS) and their Support partners will be invited to share their experiences and challenges living with PPMS. This advice will inform the pharmaceutical/biotech company’s work in providing information about the product and appropriately engaging with the MS community.

The pharmaceutical/biotech company will reimburse the travel expenses of invited participants, and provide an honorarium as thanks for their time and participation. 

Participants must:
  • be between the ages of 18 and 55
  • have a diagnosis (made by a physician) of PPMS for 3 to 10 years
  • not currently be participating in an MS drug clinical trial
  • be interested in participating, with or without a care-partner; and
  • be willing and able to travel to Chicago, IL, for a one-day meeting on Thursday, November 3rd.  The meeting will be held at a hotel near the Chicago O’Hare International Airport. 
If you are interested in attending, please contact Sam Wunderle at Stem Scientific by email or phone.
