Fingolimod and teriflunomide are commonly used in the treatment of relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS). These have not been compared in controlled trials, but only in observational studies, with inconclusive results. Comparison of their effect on relapse and disability in a real-world setting is therefore needed.

Both natalizumab and fingolimod are highly effective in the treatment of relapsing-remitting MS (RRMS). In the absence of head-to-head trials, some observational studies have compared their efficacy w...
Fingolimod has demonstrated clinical and MRI benefits versus placebo/interferon β-1a in young adults with multiple sclerosis (MS). Here we report the long-term effects of fingolimod 0.5 mg on clinic...
Interleukins (ILs)-22, 32α and 34 were monitored in the sera of relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS) patients at different time intervals with or without interferon β-1b, interferon β-1a a...
Fingolimod is indicated for the treatment of relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS) patients with highly aggressive disease characterized by frequent relapses and active magnetic resonance imag...
The management of "aggressive" and "highly-active" relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis remains problematic. Although a number of highly efficacious agents are currently available, the optimal timin...
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...
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...
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...
The purpose of this study is to compare 2 doses (0.25 mg and 0.50 mg) of fingolimod to glatiramer acetate (20 mg) and to evaluate the efficacy of fingolimod 0.25 mg for the treatment of pa...
This study is to address the mechanism of action of teriflunomide in a phase IV open label trial with Teriflunomide in multiple sclerosis. Researchers will recruit 20 relapsing remitting m...
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.

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.
A random polymer of L-ALANINE, L-GLUTAMIC ACID, L-LYSINE, and L-TYROSINE that structurally resembles MYELIN BASIC PROTEIN. It is used in the treatment of RELAPSING-REMITTING MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS.
A humanized monoclonal immunoglobulin G4 antibody to human INTEGRIN ALPHA4 that binds to the alpha4 subunit of INTEGRIN ALPHA4BETA1 and integrin alpha4beta7. It is used as an IMMUNOLOGIC FACTOR in the treatment of RELAPSING-REMITTING MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS and CROHN'S DISEASE.
An interferon beta-1 subtype that has a methionine at position 1, a cysteine at position 17, and is glycosylated at position 80. It functions as an ANTI-VIRAL AGENT and IMMUNOMODULATOR and is used to manage the symptoms of RELAPSING-REMITTING MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS.
