Accelerated Cure Project MS Repository

A repository of biological samples and data from people with multiple sclerosis, selected other demyelinating diseases, and unaffected controls. The repository not only provides much-needed samples and data to researchers studying MS and other diseases, but also aggregates the results from all of these studies so that they can be analyzed collectively, leading to new findings and breakthroughs. The repository collects blood, DNA, and imaging once per year. The repository currently includes samples and data from over 2,700 subjects with Multiple Sclerosis, Neuromyelitis Optica, Acute Disseminated Encephalomyelitis, Transverse Myelitis, Optic Neuritis, and Clinically Isolated Syndromes, as well as controls. Blood samples are provided as aliquots as serum, plasma, DNA, RNA, and lymphocytes and each sample is accompanied by more than 40 pages of clinical and epidemiological data contributed by the subject and the enrolling neurologist.
