In a landmark FDA ruling, Ocrevus became the first DMT approved for the treatment of PP-MS in March 2017. Although the drug’s efficacy appears more modest than in patients with relapsing forms of MS, the combination of proven clinical benefits and a positive safety profile (to date) yields a highly compelling product for a deeply underserved population. Even so, many questions remain about exactly how it will fit into the progressive MS treatment algorithm. DRG’s launch tracking series will examine how the perception and performance of Ocrevus evolves through Year 1 with an MS prescriber base that has hitherto struggled to treat PP-MS.
