To assess early phase safety and tolerability of converting patients from approved oral and injectable RMS DMTs to siponimod. The results of this study will guide clinically relevant decisions related to the transition from frequently used RMS DMTs to siponimod and provide clinically relevant data on safety and tolerability for healthcare providers who are considering converting patients from currently approved RMS DMT to siponimod.
This is a 6-month, open-label, multi-center, single arm design, including 300 advancing RMS patients, evaluating overall safety and tolerability profile when acutely converting to siponimod from oral or injectable RMS DMT.

The primary goal of this study is to evaluate the effects of BAF312 (siponimod) on select immune and neuronal (nerve) cells by examining laboratory specimens (blood and/or spinal fluid) at...
We propose to evaluate auditory function and neuropsychologic function in 150 Multiple Sclerosis (MS) patients and in 150 patients who do not have MS. Experimental subjects will be recrui...
Multiple sclerosis is often associated with pain. There is no standard treatment of this type of pain. Levetiracetam is a new anticonvulsant and it is the hypothesis that it could relieve ...
The aim of this observational study is to compare Dimethyl fumarate (DMF) and Teriflunomide on both clinical and MRI outcomes in patients with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS)...
Gut microbiota and multiple sclerosis Multiple sclerosis is a pro-inflammatory demyelinating disease of the central nervous system.
Siponimod (BAF312) is a selective sphingosine 1-phosphate receptor 1 and 5 (S1PR1, S1PR5) modulator recently approved for active secondary progressive multiple sclerosis (SPMS). The immunomodulatory e...
To study the efficacy and safety of siponimod in patients with secondary progressive multiple sclerosis (SPMS) in the Russian population of the EXPAND study.
Progressive multiple sclerosis (PMS) causes slow accumulation of neurologic disability and has been refractory to treatment with the immunomodulatory medications that effectively control relapsing MS....
Despite multiple diagnostic tests, multiple sclerosis (MS) remains a clinical diagnosis with supportive paraclinical evidence.
Proper management of multiple sclerosis (MS) requires feedback from clinical practice via registries.
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)
The most common clinical variant of MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS, characterized by recurrent acute exacerbations of neurologic dysfunction followed by partial or complete recovery. Common clinical manifestations include loss of visual (see OPTIC NEURITIS), motor, sensory, or bladder function. Acute episodes of demyelination may occur at any site in the central nervous system, and commonly involve the optic nerves, spinal cord, brain stem, and cerebellum. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp903-914)
Multiple protein bands serving as markers of specific ANTIBODIES and detected by ELECTROPHORESIS of CEREBROSPINAL FLUID or serum. The bands are most often seen during inflammatory or immune processes and are found in most patients with MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS.
