Multiple Sclerosis Research Group
MS doctors and specialists at the Multiple Sclerosis Research Group (MSRG) Clinic have established a track record of cutting-edge care through the use of state-of-the-art techniques in the diagnosis, evaluation, management and treatment of adult patients with demyelinating disorders in Houston.
Specialists at the Houston clinic are at the forefront of investigator-initiated research in MS, including:
- immune regulation in MS
- infections as a cause of MS
- MS-related MRI findings
- MS-related cognitive impairment
The Center also conducts investigator-initiated and pharmaceutical company sponsored clinical trials on novel agents for the treatment of MS and clinical research using imaging studies to investigate the evolution of MS pathology.
Houston's Leader in MS Research
Organized in 1983, the MSRG is a global leader in advanced image analysis for multiple sclerosis and the first and only center in Houston to direct national and international clinical trails in MS.
Our team of physicians has participated in more than 25 clinical trials of potential novel symptomatic and disease-modifying therapies. Several of these trials were pivotal in supporting FDA approval of treatments currently available for MS.
The Institute was the first in the world to conduct preclinical studies on the effects of combined therapy with immunomodulating drugs and to explore the effects of oral cytokines in modulating MS and type 1 diabetes, and to focus on treatments for primary progressive forms of MS as well as the more common relapsing forms of the disease.
