The StarMS trial aims to compare the efficacy and safety profile of Autologous Haematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation (aHSCT) vs 4 ‘highly effective’ Disease Modifying Therapies (DMTs) – Ocrelizumab, Alemtuzumab, Cladribine and Ofatumumab.
The study will also research the mechanism of action to help our understanding of how aHSCT works in RRMS.
The study aims to recruit 198 patients from 19 sites across the UK. All participants will be followed up over a 24 month period involving regular visits with the study team. Study visits will include blood tests, neurology examinations and questionnaires.

Our aims are to:
Help and support UK based sufferers of auto-immune diseases, primarily those with Multiple Sclerosis.
