Safety, Tolerability and Adherence With Rebif® New Formulation in Real Life Settings (STAR)

2014-08-27 03:15:29 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The rationale of this study is to assess the safety profile, efficacy and adherence to Rebif® New Formulation in real life settings with a multinational approach, as well as the impact of this improved formulation (with regards to adverse events [AEs]) to subjects' adherence.

Description

This international, multicentric, prospective, observational study is being conducted to assess the safety profile, efficacy and adherence to Rebif® New Formulation in real life settings in subjects with relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS), as well as the impact of this improved formulation (with regards to adverse events [AEs]) to subjects' adherence. Three hundred and fifty subjects from approximately 80 sites across seven countries will be enrolled in the study. Subjects will be treated with IFN beta-1a (Rebif® New Formulation) in real life settings according to the clinical and paraclinical course and laboratory findings as routinely evaluated by the physician. Data related to AEs; subjects' adherence to treatment, reasons for treatment discontinuation; number and reasons of missed injections; and the clinical and paraclinical data on efficacy regarding relapses will be captured. Data will be reported prospectively throughout the duration of the study (12 months) at two visits (at month 6 and month 12) following the initial visit; at baseline, data can be recorded retrospectively from the subjects' medical file. All the data will be evaluated descriptively.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

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.

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)
