For example, initial eicacy trials in middle stage may uncover that peripheral edema complicates the use of a medication in a signiicant percentage of patients. For any patient presenting with a complaint of edema, speciic additional medical history is recorded, limb measures are taken and additional blood, urine or other testing is performed to more fully understand the nature of the edema in speciic cases. At the end of the late stage program, these data are summarized and described in aggregate and can provide signiicant insight into a particular safety or tolerability issue.

In addition, diiculties arise because of the complexity of the CNS and the challenges of developing clinical endpoints to capture therapeutic efects on multiple functional domains controlled by complex brain Chapter 3: Unique challenges in the development of therapies circuits. Some of these problems have arisen because we have historically used clinical scales that were developed to describe subgroups of domains afected by CNS diseases. One example is the EDSS in MS which is largely inluenced by lower extremity walking function, but less so by cognition or upper extremity function.
