Brief Summary:
A multinational, multicenter, randomized, Phase III, double blind, parallel group, placebo controlled study in subjects with Relapsing Forms of Multiple Sclerosis (RMS) to assess the efficacy, safety and tolerability of GA Depot, a long acting IM injection of glatiramer acetate, administered once every four weeks

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Multiple Sclerosis, Relapsing-Remitting Drug: GA Depot Other: Placebo Phase 3

Detailed Description:

A total of 960 subjects are planned to be randomized into this study to receive treatment with GA Depot or with matching placebo.

During the placebo controlled period (PC period, the first 52 weeks of the study immediately after randomization) subjects will receive either 40mg of GA Depot or matching placebo, IM, once every 4 weeks, for a total of 13 times.

Subjects who complete the PC period of the study will be offered to continue into the open label period (OL period) for an additional 52 weeks, in which all subjects will receive 40mg of GA Depot IM once every 4 weeks.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: GA Depot
Monthly IM injection
Drug: GA Depot
Long acting intramuscular injection of glatiramer acetate, once every 4 weeks

Placebo Comparator: Placebo
Monthly IM injection
Other: Placebo
IM injection once every 4 weeks




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Annualized Relapse Rate (ARR) [ Time Frame: 52 weeks ]
    Annualized Relapse Rate (ARR) will be derived from the total number of confirmed relapses.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Changes in brain MRI (number of T1 lesions) [ Time Frame: 52 weeks ]
    Cumulative number of new enhancing lesions on T1-weighted images as compared to baseline.

  2. Changes in brain MRI (number of T2 lesions) [ Time Frame: 52 weeks ]
    Cumulative number of new or newly enlarging hyperintense T2 lesions as compared to baseline.

  3. Hyperintense T2-lesion volume change [ Time Frame: 52 weeks ]
    Change from baseline to Week 52 in hyperintense T2-lesion volume.

  4. Enhancing T1-lesion volume change [ Time Frame: 52 weeks ]
    Change from baseline to Week 52 in enhancing T1-lesion volume.

  2. Subjects able to provide signed written informed consent.
  3. Subjects must be willing and able to comply with the protocol requirements for the duration of the study.
  4. MS diagnosis fulfilling the 2017 McDonald Criteria.
  5. Subjects should be ambulatory with an EDSS score of 0-5.5 at screening and baseline visits. EDSS score will be determined by a separate, blinded trained EDSS rater.
  6. Subjects should be relapse free and neurologically stable from one month before screening visit and from screening visit to baseline visit.
  7. No systemic corticosteroid treatment or ACTH within one month prior to screening visit.
  8. Subjects must have experienced at least one of the following:

    i. One documented relapse in the 12 months prior to screening. ii. Two documented relapses in the 24 months prior to screening. iii. One documented relapse between 12 and 24 months prior to screening, with at least one documented T1-Gd enhancing lesion in MRI performed within 0-12 months before screening.

  9. Women capable of child bearing must have a negative urine pregnancy test at screening visit and use an adequate contraceptive method throughout the study.

Exclusion criteria:

  1. Use of experimental / investigational drug, and / or participation in drug clinical studies within the 6 months prior to screening.
  2. Any off-label drug use for MS treatment such as high dose simvastatin and biotin within 6 months prior to screening.

  4. Previous use of Natalizumab or any anti-B cell agent within 9 months prior to screening.
  5. Previous use of Fingolimod or Dimethyl Fumarate within 2 months prior to screening. Subjects will be excluded if they do not have a lymphocyte count of above 1,000/mm3 at screening.
  6. Previous use of Teriflunomide within 12 months if no accelerated elimination procedure was used.
  7. Previous treatment with immunomodulators (including IFNβ 1a and 1b, and IV Immunoglobulin (IVIg) within 2 months prior to screening.
