Gold Nanocrystals for remyelination - update - phase 2 trial at UTSW

Hello. 5 weeks of the trial and I can report increased mobility (less footdrop,) visual acuity, and almost zero fatigue issues. Zero side effects from the drug therapy. I feel like I did 3 or 4 years ago before my MS symptoms worsened. I hope that continued treatment will lead to complete recovery.

The clinical trial study at the Univ. of Texas Southwestern needs up to 15 more volunteers with RRMS/PPMS to participate in the trial. It's free and they give you a small stipend. I have to travel there 6 times for evaluation and dosing, but it's well worth it in my opinion.

I'm happy to provide more information based on my experience.

Info on trial can be found here:
