Primary Outcome(s)
Main Objective: To investigate the ability of the HAP score to accurately predict responders to Octagam 5%
Primary end point(s): Superiority with regard to decreased ARR of Octagam 5% treatment in patients pre-classified as predicted responders (“RO”) compared to predicted nonresponders (“NRO”) to Octagam 5% treatment
Secondary Objective: • To verify that Octagam 5% in predicted responders is of at least similar effectiveness as the first-line therapies IFN-ß sc or GA • To verify that the HAP score result is of no predictive power for the ARR in IFN-ß sc or GA treated patients • To evaluate the assumption that the HAP score truly predicts the effectiveness of treatment with Octagam 5% and not the progress of disease as such • To investigate the proportion of patients responding to IMP treatment vs. patients not responding • To investigate the effect of IMP treatment on the time to first medically confirmed relapse after 3-month run-in phase • To investigate the effect of IMP treatment on the level of disability, evaluated by means of the EDSS and the MSFC score • To investigate the effect of IMP treatment on the brain by means of MRI parameters (lesion number and volume; whole brain volume) • To investigate the effect of IMP treatment on health-related QoL • To investigate the safety and tolerability of IMP treatment
Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point: Continuously
Secondary Outcome(s)
Secondary end point(s): Secondary efficacy endpoints are:
• ARR of Octagam 5% treatment compared to active control (first-line therapy: IFN-ß sc or GA)
• ARR of IFN-ß sc or GA treatment compared between predicted responders (“RI/G”) and non-responders (“NRI/G”) to Octagam 5% treatment
• Compare ARR of “RO” with both IMP treatment arms combined (“RI/G” and “NRI/G”)
• Percentage of actual responders and non-responders in the 21-month period between 3 months after first study treatment administration (“run-in” phase) and the end of treatment period at month 24)
• Time from randomisation to first medically confirmed relapse after 3-month run-in phase
• Time from last relapse before enrolment to first medically confirmed relapse after 3-month run-in phase
• Progression of the disease (defined as an increase of the EDSS), confirmed at 2 separate assessments at least 12 weeks apart
• Change in MSFC
• Cerebral MRI assessments: number and volumes of Gadolinium-diethylenetriamine penta-acetic acid (Gd-DTPA) enhancing lesions with T1 weighted imaging; number of new and enlarging T2 lesions; number of new T1 Black Holes; volumes of T1 and T2 lesions; whole brain volume
• Health-related Quality of Life assessed by MSQOL-54
Secondary safety endpoints are:
• Adverse event (AE) monitoring
• Vital signs (blood pressure, heart rate, body temperature and respiratory rate)
• Standard laboratory safety tests (clinical chemistry and haematology)
Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point: Continuously
