Project: Research project

Project Details


This is an application to become one of the cooperating clinics in
the Optic Neuritis Treatment Trial. The ONTT consists of
essentially two research components: (1) a clinical trial of the
efficacy of oral prednisone and intravenous methylprednisolone in
reducing residule optic nerve damage in patients with optic
neuritis; and (2) a study of the natural history of optic neuritis.

In this proposal we document our patient recruitment potential.
Our group of ophthalmologists and neurologists saw 12 patients
with optic neuritis meeting the listed Study criteria within a 12
month period. In addition we provide data from 2 practitioners in
our referral area, willing to refer patients for the Study, who have
seen a total of 4 patients with optic neuritis meeting the Study
criteria within a 12 month period.
