You can join if…
Open to people ages 18-65

- Have experience of having used a smartphone and connecting a smartphone to Wi-Fi network providers.
- For women of childbearing potential: agreement to use an acceptable birth control method during the treatment period and for at least 6 months after the last dose of study drug.
- EDSS (Expanded Disability Status Scale) ≤6.5 at screening
- Have a documented evidence of disability progression independent of relapse at any point in time over the 2 years prior to the screening visit. In case relapse(s) have occurred in the last 2 years, disability progression will have to be considered as independent of relapse activity as per treating physician's judgment
