Are there any clinical and electrocardiographic predictors of heart rate reduction in relapsing- remitting multiple sclerosis patients treated with fingolimod?

Fingolimod, a sphingosine-1-phosphate receptor agonist, is used for treatment of relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS). S1P receptors that fingolimod acts upon have also been shown to be expre...

Trial of Fingolimod versus Interferon Beta-1a in Pediatric Multiple Sclerosis.

Treatment of patients younger than 18 years of age with multiple sclerosis has not been adequately examined in randomized trials. We compared fingolimod with interferon beta-1a in this population.

Treatment with alemtuzumab or rituximab after fingolimod withdrawal in relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis is effective and safe.

It has been described that treating relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS) patients with alemtuzumab following fingolimod could be less effective due to the different dynamics of lymphocyte rep...

Effect of dosage reduction on peripheral blood lymphocyte count in patients with multiple sclerosis receiving long-term fingolimod therapy.

Of the 19 cases of fingolimod-associated progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy (PML) reported worldwide by the end of 2017, 4 cases were from Japan. This may indicate that fingolimod sensitivity ...

Impact of fingolimod on clinical and magnetic resonance imaging outcomes in routine clinical practice: A retrospective analysis of the multiple sclerosis, clinical and MRI outcomes in the USA (MS-MRIUS) study.

The effectiveness of fingolimod on clinical and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) outcomes in patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) has been well established in trials and, to a lesser extent, in the r...

Long-term Effect of Fingolimod on Circulating Immunocompetent Mononuclear Cells in Patients With Multiple Sclerosis

The purpose of this study is to explore immunomodulatory and immunosuppressive mechanisms of action of fingolimod in patients with Relapsing remitting multiple Sclerosis to collect data on...

Biomarker Study After Initiation of Treatment With Fingolimod (FTY720) in Patients With Relapsing-remitting Multiple Sclerosis

The purpose of this study is to investigate which changes in immunological biomarkers under treatment with fingolimod in patients with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis can be detecte...

Efficacy and Safety of Fingolimod in Patients With Relapsing-Remitting Multiple Sclerosis With Optional Extension Phase

This study will assess safety, tolerability and efficacy of two doses of oral fingolimod versus interferon β-1a to reduce the frequency of relapses in patients with relapsing-remitting mu...

Monitoring Natural Killer Cells in Multiple Sclerosis Patients Treated With Fingolimod

Data on fingolimod effects on NK cells are so far conflicting. A longitudinal study on fingolimod treated kidney transplant patients showed that NK cells were not influenced in any of the ...

Effects of Fingolimod on Heart Rhythm and Heart Rate Variability in Patients With Multiple Sclerosis

The current study sought to prolong the observational interval after initiating medication with fingolimod and to measure the long-term effects of fingolimod on HR and HRV as an indicator ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A sphingosine-derivative and IMMUNOSUPPRESSIVE AGENT that blocks the migration and homing of LYMPHOCYTES to the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM through its action on SPHINGOSINE 1-PHOSPHATE RECEPTORS. It is used in the treatment of MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS.

A form of multiple sclerosis characterized by a progressive deterioration in neurologic function which is in contrast to the more typical relapsing remitting form. If the clinical course is free of distinct remissions, it is referred to as primary progressive multiple sclerosis. When the progressive decline is punctuated by acute exacerbations, it is referred to as progressive relapsing multiple sclerosis. The term secondary progressive multiple sclerosis is used when relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis evolves into the chronic progressive form. (From Ann Neurol 1994;36 Suppl:S73-S79; Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp903-914)

A non-glycosylated form of interferon beta-1 that has a serine at position 17. It is used in the treatment of both RELAPSING-REMITTING MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS and CHRONIC PROGRESSIVE MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS.

An autoimmune disorder mainly affecting young adults and characterized by destruction of myelin in the central nervous system. Pathologic findings include multiple sharply demarcated areas of demyelination throughout the white matter of the central nervous system. Clinical manifestations include visual loss, extra-ocular movement disorders, paresthesias, loss of sensation, weakness, dysarthria, spasticity, ataxia, and bladder dysfunction. The usual pattern is one of recurrent attacks followed by partial recovery (see MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS, RELAPSING-REMITTING), but acute fulminating and chronic progressive forms (see MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS, CHRONIC PROGRESSIVE) also occur. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p903)

A fumarate derivative that is used as a DERMATOLOGIC AGENT in the treatment of PSORIASIS and SKIN DISEASES. It also may be used as an IMMUNOSUPPRESSIVE AGENT in the treatment of MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS.
