Adamas Announces First Patient Enrolled in Phase 3 Trial of ADS-5102 in Multiple Sclerosis Patients with Walking Impairment
“Initiating this Phase 3 study of ADS-5102 in MS patients with walking impairment is a significant milestone for Adamas, as it could potentially advance the approval of GOCOVRI (amantadine) extended release capsules as a treatment for this MS population,” said
