Link to the current ClinicalTrials.gov record.

Condition(s) targeted: Multiple Sclerosis, Relapsing-Remitting

Intervention: Rebif (Drug); Rebif placebo (Drug); ocrelizumab (Drug); ocrelizumab placebo (Drug)

Phase: Phase 3

Status: Active, not recruiting

Sponsored by: Hoffmann-La Roche

Official(s) and/or principal investigator(s):
Clinical Trials, Study Director, Affiliation: Hoffmann-La Roche


This randomized, double-blind, double-dummy, parallel-group study will evaluate the efficacy and safety of ocrelizumab in comparison with Rebif (interferon beta-1a) in patients with relapsing multiple sclerosis. Patients will be randomized to receive either in group A, ocrelizumab 600 mg intravenously (iv) every 24 weeks plus Rebif placebo subcutaneously (sc) three times weekly, or, in group B, Rebif 8. 8 mcg (Weeks 1+2)/22 mcg (Weeks 3+4)/44 mcg (Week 5 and following) sc three times weekly plus ocrelizumab placebo iv every 24 weeks. Anticipated time on study treatment is 96 weeks.

Clinical Details

Official title: A Randomized, Double-Blind, Double-Dummy, Parallel-Group Study To Evaluate the Efficacy and Safety of Ocrelizumab in Comparison to Interferon Beta-1a (Rebif®) in Patients With Relapsing Multiple Sclerosis

Study design: Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor), Primary Purpose: Treatment

Primary outcome: Annualized protocol-defined relapse rate by 2 years in patients with relapsing MS

Secondary outcome:

Time to onset of sustained disability progression for at least 24 weeks

Proportion of relapse-free patients

Change in total T2 lesion volume as detected by brain MRI

Total number of new, and/or enlarging T2 hyperintense lesions as detected by brain MRI

Change in Multiple Sclerosis Functional Composite Scale (MSFCS) score

Change in brain volume as detected by brain MRI

Safety: Incidence of adverse events

Pharmacokinetics: Exposure to ocrelizumab (area under the concentration - time curve)

Immunogenicity: Human anti-human antibodies (HAHA) levels


Minimum age: 18 Years. Maximum age: 55 Years. Gender(s): Both.
