MS nonprofit is building large research repository, seeks participants


Accelerated Cure Project for MS is creating a large-scale collection of
blood samples and data from people with MS, people with other
demyelinating diseases, and unaffected controls. We are making the
samples and data available to researchers studying the causes of MS and
building a database of the experimental results obtained in these studies.


The repository provides MS scientists with rapid access to a large
number of high quality samples, thereby accelerating efforts to cure
this disease. As of November 2008, over 1,350 people have enrolled but
we still need more!


Participation involves spending an hour or two at one of our collection
sites, answering a questionnaire, and donating some blood. If you live
(or travel) near
Worcester, MA
New York City, NY
Baltimore, MD
Atlanta, GA
Dallas, TX
Phoenix, AZ
then you may be able to participate.
