Clinical Study to Compare the Efficacy and Safety of Ponesimod to Placebo in Subjects With Active Relapsing Multiple Sclerosis Who Are Treated With Dimethyl Fumarate (Tecfidera®)


Brief description of study

A clinical research study called 'POINT' will evaluate if adding an oral study drug to Tecfidera® can have an effect on multiple sclerosis (MS) disease activity.

In this study, patients with active relapsing MS will receive add-on therapy with ponesimod (a sphingosine 1-phosphate [S1P] receptor modulator) or placebo on top of background treatment with another oral MS drug (dimethyl fumarate [DMF] - Tecfidera®).

Eligible participants must currently take Tecfidera® and have taken this medication for at least 6 months. The primary objective of the study is to determine whether add-on therapy with ponesimod reduces relapse frequency as compared to placebo in subjects with active relapsing MS who are treated with Tecfidera®.
