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 […]
