Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change from baseline in Disease activity measured by Kurtzke's Expanded Disability Status Scale (EDSS) [ Time Frame: Baseline, 24 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Kurtzke's Expanded Disability Status Scale (EDSS): assesses disability in 8 functional systems. An overall score ranging from 0 (normal) to 10 (death due to MS) is calculated. Disability progression was determined by the following: One point increase from baseline in patients with baseline EDSS score from 0 to 5.0; or half a point increase in patients with baseline EDSS score of 5.5 or above.

  • Change from baseline inDisease activity measured by 9-Hole Peg Test (9HPT) [ Time Frame: baseline, 24 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    9-Hole Peg Test (9HPT): The time to 3-month confirmed disability progression based on the occurrence of any events as measured by ther 9-HPT

  • Change in Disease activity measured by 25 ft Timed Walk Test (25'TWT) [ Time Frame: baseline, 24 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    25 ft Timed Walk Test (25'TWT): The time to 3-month confirmed disability progression based on the occurrence of any events as measured by the 25'TWT.

  • Change in Disease Activity measured by Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) parameters [ Time Frame: baseline, 24months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    MRI: change/percent change from baseline in predefined MRI parameter including (but not limited to): total volume of T1-hypointense lesions, T2-weighted hyperintense lesion count, new/newly-enlarged T2 lesions and total volume of T2 lesions, changes in brain volume.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of patients with AE/SAE as assessment of safety and tolerability [ Time Frame: Baseline to 24 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Analysis will report overall AE/SAE and death.


Estimated Enrollment: 700
Study Start Date: January 2013
Estimated Study Completion Date: April 2017
Estimated Primary Completion Date: April 2017 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
