Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Ponesimod
Subjects to receive 20 mg ponesimod
Drug: ponesimod
film-coated tablet with 20 mg ponesimod, administered orally once daily in the morning
Other Name: ACT-128800

Active Comparator: Teriflunomide
Subjects to receive 14 mg teriflunomide
Drug: teriflunomide
film-coated tablet with 14 mg teriflunomide, administered orally once daily in the morning




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Annualized relapse rate (ARR) [ Time Frame: From baseline to End-of-Treatment (EOT, Week 108) ]
    ARR is defined as the number of confirmed relapses per subject-year


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change from baseline to Week 108 in fatigue-related symptoms as measured by the symptoms domain of the Fatigue Symptoms and Impact Questionnaire - Relapsing Multiple Sclerosis (FSIQ-RMS) [ Time Frame: From baseline to EOT (Week 108) ]
    The FSIQ-RMS is a 20-item patient-reported outcome (PRO) measure that was developed by Actelion to evaluate fatigue-related symptoms and the impacts of those symptoms on the lives of people with relapsing multiple sclerosis (RMS).

  2. Cumulative number of combined unique active lesions (CUAL) from baseline to Week 108 [ Time Frame: From baseline to EOT (Week 108) ]
    CUAL is defined as new gadolinium-enhancing (Gd+) T1 lesions puls new or enlarging T2 lesions (wihtout double-counting of lesions) measured by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).

  3. Time to 12-week confirmed disability accumulation (CDA) from baseline to End-of-Study (EOS) [ Time Frame: From baseline to EOS (Week 108 + 30 days) ]
    The 12-week CDA is an increase in the Expanded Disability Status Scale (EDSS) score relative to the EDSS score at baseline as defined in the study protocol. The EDSS score is based on the examination by a neurologist and ranges from 0 (lowest) to 10 (highest) with 0.5 unit increments. EDSS quantifies disability and monitors changes in the level of disability over time.

  4. Time to 24-week CDA from baseline to EOS [ Time Frame: From baseline to EOS (Week 108 + 30 days) ]
    The 24-week CDA is an increase in the Expanded Disability Status Scale (EDSS) score relative to the EDSS score at baseline as defined in the study protocol. The EDSS score is based on the examination by a neurologist and ranges from 0 (lowest) to 10 (highest) with 0.5 unit increments. EDSS quantifies disability and monitors changes in the level of disability over time.

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 55 Years   (Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

Male and female subjects aged 18 to 55 years with established diagnosis of MS McDonald 2010 with relapsing course from onset (i.e., RRMS and SPMS with superimposed relapses).

Subjects must have active disease evidenced by one or more MS attacks with onset within the period of 12 to 1 months prior to randomization, or by two or more MS attacks with onset within the 24 to 1 months prior to randomization, or with one or more gadolinium-enhancing (Gd+) lesion(s) of the brain on an MRI performed within 6 months prior to randomization.

Enrolled subjects must be ambulatory (EDSS score of up to 5.5 inclusive) and may be treatment-naïve or previously treated with MS disease modifying therapy.

Exclusion Criteria:

Subjects with significant medical conditions or therapies for such conditions (e.g., cardiovascular, pulmonary, immunological, hepatic,ophthalmological conditions) or lactating or pregnant women are not eligible to enter the study.

Subjects with contraindications to MRI or with clinically relevant medical or surgical conditions that, in the opinion of the investigator, would put the subject at risk by participating in the study are not eligible to enter the study.
