Bruce Cree, AAN 2022: Ublituximab and its potential use in the treatment of relapsing multiple sclerosis
Ublituximab is a novel glycoengineered monoclonal antibody treatment under investigation for relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis. Prof. Bruce Cree (UCSF Multiple Sclerosis Centre, San Francisco, CA, USA) discusses ublituximab’s novel mode of action, and the potential advantages of ublituximab compared with other antibodies targeting CD20-expressing B-cells in the relapsing multiple sclerosis (RMS).
The abstract entitled ‘Disability Improvements With Ublituximab in Relapsing Multiple Sclerosis (RMS): Expanded Disability Status Scale (EDSS), 9-Hole Peg Test (9-HPT), and Timed 25-Foot Walk (T25FW) Evaluations From the Phase 3 ULTIMATE I and II Studies’ was presented at the American Academy of Neurology (AAN) annual meeting, April 2-7, 2022.

The phase 3 EVOLVE-MS-1 (NCT02634307), was a 96-week, open-label, Phase 3 study, assessing safety, tolerability, and exploratory clinical and MRI efficacy of diroximel fumarate in adults with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS). Diroximel fumarate, an oral fumarate for relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis, has the same active metabolite as dimethyl fumarate. Diroximel fumarate has similar efficacy and safety […]
