This research is being done to study the effectiveness of oral estriol when given in combination with the drug Copaxone in reducing the number of relapses in women with relapsing-remitting MS. MS relapses are known to be significantly decreased during pregnancy. Estriol is the major estrogen hormone of pregnancy.
Previously, a small study showed that relapsing-remitting MS participants who received oral estriol for six months had a significant reduction in new lesions on brain MRIs and a favorable shift in immune response.
Participants in this study must be females diagnosed with relapsing-remitting MS and between the ages of 18 and 50 years.
