Shortly after the end of the quarter, MediciNova reported results
from the completed two-year Phase II clinical trial of MN-166 for
the treatment of multiple sclerosis (MS). Importantly, MN-166
slowed sustained disability progression. Sustained disability
progression was measured as a greater than or equal to 1.0 point
increase from baseline in the Expanded Disability Status Scale
(EDSS) score for four consecutive months. Significant effects
were also observed by MRI, including a significant reduction in
brain volume loss and a significant reduction in the relative risk
for conversion of new inflammatory lesions identified at month two
to persistent black holes at month ten, which indicate MN-166 is
