Effectiveness of DMF and its impact on PROs in Suboptimal GA Responders with RMS (RESPOND)

The primary objective of the study is to estimate the annualized relapse rate (ARR) over a 12-month period in patients with relapsing forms of MS who are treated with dimethyl fumarate (DMF) after suboptimal response to glatiramer acetate (GA). The secondary objectives of this study in this study population are to assess the impact of DMF over a 12-month period on patient-reported outcomes (PROs) and health economic-related outcomes and to evaluate additional clinical outcomes at Month 12.
