Population Description
Explanation of how the number of participants for analysis was determined. Includes whether analysis was per protocol, intention to treat, or another method. Also provides relevant details such as imputation technique, as appropriate.
Intent-to-treat population: participants who were randomized and received at least 1 dose of study treatment (peginterferon beta-1a or placebo).

[1] The EDSS measures the disability status of people with multiple sclerosis (MS) on a scale that ranges from 0 to 10. The range of main categories include 0 (normal neurologic exam), to 5 (ambulatory without aid or rest for 200 meters/disability severe enough to impair full daily activities), to 10 (death due to MS).
