This trial is a Phase I study which means that it is tested in a small number of patients for the first time. The medication is injected under the skin into the fatty tissues of the abdomen. Subjects will receive either RN 168 or placebo. The study will last approximately 6 months. This medication is being tested as a possible new therapy to treat multiple sclerosis.
