Accelerated Cure Project Repository Open for Enrollment
Published story by sjloud
The Accelerated Cure Project repository continues to be open for enrollment at six collection sites nationwide (Worcester, MA; New York, NY; Baltimore, MD; Atlanta, GA; Dallas, TX; or Phoenix, AZ).
If you have MS, TM, NMO, ADEM, CIS, or ON and live or travel near one of the collection sites - you may be eligible to enroll.
Participation in the repository includes a blood draw and interview. Many more details regarding enrolling may be found in the Repository --Get Involved  section of Accelerated Cure Project's website.
The purpose  of the repository is to provide a much needed resource to the researchers studying the causes of MS and other demyelinating diseases. Through development of this repository, scientists investigating many different aspects of MS will now have large numbers of samples available to use in their work. Additionally, the results from the distinct experiments performed on samples from this resource are being added into the repository database where they
can be analyzed together. By analyzing results from multiple studies simultaneously, Accelerated Cure Project hopes to find combinations of factors that predispose to or protect against MS and other demyelinating diseases.
