Ocrelizumab (OCREVUS™), an anti-B cell therapy has been approved by the FDA as of March 28th 2017, for the treatment of Relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS) and primary progressive multiple sclerosis (PPMS). This treatment is highly effective for RRMS, based on the data from the Phase III clinical studies. It is also the first drug approved for use in PPMS. At IMSMP/TISCH we have used Rituximab, a similar anti-B cell treatment, for the past 16 years with great success.
Construction crews have arrived on site. The build-out has begun!

Tisch MSRCNY is preparing for construction to commence January 2017 of a state-of-the-art stem cell facility on our 3rd floor. This could not have been done without the generosity of our supporters. The build-out of our new research laboratory enables Phase II of the Tisch MSRCNY FDA-approved stem cell clinical trial to move forward. We are NOT enrolling patients in the study at this time. We anticipate the trial to commence in June of 2017.  Please check the Phase II Page of this website for continuous updates in the coming months.
