The purpose of this world-wide prospective parallel-cohort study in patients with relapsing forms of MS, either newly treated with fingolimod or receiving another disease-modifying therapy, is to further explore the incidence of selected safety- related outcomes and to further monitor the overall safety profile of fingolimod under conditions of routine medical practice.
To evaluate the effects of BIIB033 versus placebo on disability improvement over 72 weeks and to evaluate the effects of BIIB033 versus placebo on additional measures of disability improvement.
The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the long-term safety profile of BG00012 (dimethyl fumarate). Secondary objectives of this study are to evaluate the long-term efficacy of BG00012 using clinical endpoints and disability progression, to evaluate further the long-term effects of BG00012 on multiple sclerosis (MS) brain lesions on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans in participants who had MRI scans as part of Studies 109MS301 (NCT00420212) and 109MS302 (NCT00451451) and to evaluate the long-term effects of BG00012 on health economics assessments and the visual function test.
This randomized, parallel group, double-blind, placebo controlled study will evaluate the efficacy and safety of ocrelizumab in participants with primary progressive multiple sclerosis. Eligible participants will be randomized 2 : 1 to receive either ocrelizumab or placebo. The blinded treatment period will be at least 120 weeks, followed by an Open Label Extension (OLE) treatment for participants in both groups who in the opinion of the investigator could benefit from further or newly initiated ocrelizumab treatment. Unless terminated early, all participants will continue their treatment with open-label ocrelizumab until the last participant who entered the OLE phase reaches 4 years of open-label ocrelizumab treatment.
This randomized, double-blind, double-dummy, parallel-group study will evaluate the efficacy and safety of ocrelizumab in comparison with interferon beta-1a (Rebif) in participants with relapsing multiple sclerosis. Participants will be randomized to receive either ocrelizumab 600 mg or matching placebo intravenous (IV) as 300 mg infusions on Days 1 and 15 for the first dose and as a single infusion of 600 mg for all subsequent infusions every 24 weeks, with placebo injections matching interferon beta-1a SC three times per week; or interferon beta-1a 44 mcg SC injections three times per week (with placebo infusions matching ocrelizumab infusions every 24 weeks).
Evaluate the safety and efficacy of Siponimod (BAF312) versus placebo in a variable treatment duration in patients with secondary progressive multiple sclerosis (Core Part) followed by extended treatment with open-label BAF312 to obtain data on long-term safety, tolerabiilty and efficacy (Extension Part).
This is an open-label, multicenter, biomarker study designed to be hypothesis-generating in order to better understand the mechanism of action of ocrelizumab and B-cell biology in RMS or PPMS. The study will be conducted in two cohorts i.e. RMS cohort (4 arm group) and PPMS cohort (one arm group). RMS cohort: Ocrelizumab will be administered as two intravenous (IV) infusions of 300 milligrams (mg) on Days 1 and 15. Subsequent doses will be given as single 600-mg infusions at Weeks 24 and 48. Participants will be randomized in 1:1:1 ratio to receive lumbar puncture (LP) post-treatment at Week 12, 24, or 52 following the first dose of ocrelizumab in three arm groups. A fourth RMS arm with delayed treatment start (Arm 4 [control group]) will not be a part of the randomization and will be recruited separately, wherein treatment with ocrelizumab will be delayed for 12 weeks from pre-treatment baseline. PPMS cohort: Ocrelizumab 600 mg will be administered as two 300-mg IV infusions separated by 14 days at a scheduled interval of every 24 weeks. Participants will receive a LP at the start of the study before dosing with ocrelizumab and second LP at Week 52 following the first dose of ocrelizumab.
This study will evaluate the efficacy and safety of ocrelizumab in participants with RRMS who have had a suboptimal response to an adequate course of DMT. Participants will receive ocrelizumab as an initial dose of two 300-milligrams (mg) intravenous (IV) infusions (600 mg total) separated by 14 days followed by one 600-mg IV infusion for a maximum of 4 doses (up to 96 weeks). Anticipated time on study treatment is 96 weeks.
This is a prospective, multicenter, open-label, single-arm, phase 3b study which evaluates effectiveness and safety of ocrelizumab in participants with early stage RRMS. The study will consist of an open-label treatment period of 192 weeks and follow-up period of at least 48 weeks.
