  3. Have active, clinically significant liver, renal or bone marrow disease accompanied with significant laboratory abnormalities in the range of grade I or more as defined by Common Toxicity Criteria (CTC),
  4. Clinically significant ECG abnormalities at screening
  5. Have the presence of systemic disease that, in the opinion of the investigator, might interfere with subject safety, compliance or evaluation of the condition under study (e.g. insulin dependent diabetes, lyme disease, clinically significant cardiac, hepatic, or renal disease, Human Immunodeficiency Virus, or Human T-Cell Lymphotrophic Virus Type-1)
  6. Have current autoimmune disease, compromised immune function or infection
  7. History of allergic reactions to glatiramer acetate
  8. Steroid therapy within 30 days prior to first study specific procedure, or any other treatment known to be used for putative or experimental MS treatment
  9. Therapy with ß-interferon, glatiramer acetate, statins, copaxone or nonspecific phosphodiesterase inhibitors within 3 months prior to first study-specific test
  10. Therapy with mitoxantrone, cyclophosphamide, methotrexate, azathioprine, or any other immuno-modulating (e.g. IVIG) or immunosuppressive drugs including recombinant or non-recombinant cytokines or plasma exchange within 6 months prior to performance of the first study-specific test, with the exception of corticosteroids or ACTH for relapse treatment
  11. Treatment at any time with an altered peptide ligand, cladribine, total lymphoid irradiation, monoclonal anti-body treatment e.g. anti-CD4, anti-CD52, anti-VLA4, Anti-CD20,
  12. Any contraindications for MRI, e.g. pacemaker or known allergy to Gadolinium- DTPA
  13. Participation in any other trial of an investigational agent within 90 days prior to screening
  14. History of alcohol or drug abuse as specified by the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 4th edition (DSM-IV) within the year before screening
  15. Any medical, psychiatric or other condition that could result in a subject not being able to give fully informed consent, or to comply with the protocol requirements
