GREAT news! isn't it? Hope this trial results in an effective treatment/add-on treatment for progressive forms of MS (SPMS, at least). Specially since simvastatin is non-biologic, cheap drug. Following this link you'll find the publication of the Phase II study that proved high-doses of simvastatin (around 80mg) are safe and tolerable: https://www.thelancet.com/action/showPdf?pii=S0140-6736%2813%2962242-4 Best of luck for all of you participating in the trial!
