- who had a relaspe within 3 months prior to study entry.
- with severe renal function impairment as defined by serum creatinine values > 24 mg/L.

Male: yes
Health Condition(s) or Problem(s) studied
Subjects with RR Multiple Sclerosis in whom intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) treatment is clinically indicated because first-line treatments are contraindicated or not tolerated.
MedDRA version: 9.1 Level: LLT Classification code 10063399 Term: Relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis
Intervention(s)

Trade Name: octagam
Product Name: Octagam 5%
Pharmaceutical Form: Intravenous infusion

Primary Outcome(s)
Main Objective: This is an exploratory trial to investigate
- whether any parameters of the Heidelberg Assay Panel (HAP) correlate with the clincial effect observed following Octagam 5% treatment in subjects with RR-MS.
- whether any parameters of the B-cell/Antibody Response Panel (BARP) correlate with the clinical effect observed following Octagam 5% treatment in subjects with RR-MS.
- the proportion of subjects clinically responding to Octagam 5% treatment vs. subjects not responding.
- the relapse activity during the study period.
- efficacy as assessed by neurological examinations using the Expanded Disability Status Scale (EDSS) and Functional System (FS) and the Multiple Sclerosis Functional Composite measure (MSFC).
- the change of T1- and T2-lesion load and Gd-enhancing lesion load as demonstrated by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
- the tolerability of Octagam 5% in subjects with RR-MS by monitoring safety parameters (vital signs, adverse events (AEs), safety laboratory tests.
Primary end point(s): Heidelberg Assay Panel
