  Purpose

This open-label, rater-blinded extension study enrolled participants who had relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS) and who participated in one of three prior Genzyme-sponsored studies of alemtuzumab (CAMMS223 [NCT00050778], CAMMS323 [NCT00530348] also known as CARE-MS I, or CAMMS324 [NCT00548405] also known as CARE-MS II). The purposes of this study were:

  1. To examine the long term safety and efficacy of alemtuzumab treatment in participants who received alemtuzumab as their study treatment in one of the prior studies.
  2. To examine the safety and efficacy of initial alemtuzumab treatment in this study for participants who received Rebif® (interferon beta-1a) as their study treatment in one of the prior studies.
  3. To determine the safety and efficacy of additional "as needed" alemtuzumab treatment courses. This applied both to participants who received alemtuzumab for the first time in one of the prior studies or for the first time in this extension study.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Annualized Relapse Rate (ARR) [ Time Frame: Year 3, 4, 5, 6 from the Baseline (Month 0 of CAMMS323 and Month 0 of CAMMS324 for "Alemtuzumab Treatment CAMMS323 Extension" group and "Alemtuzumab Treatment CAMMS324 Extension" group, respectively) ]
    Relapse was defined as new neurological symptoms or worsening of previous neurological symptoms with an objective change on neurological examination, attributable to multiple sclerosis (MS) that last for at least 48 hours, present at normal body temperature, and that were preceded by at least 30 days of clinical stability. ARR was obtained from the total number of confirmed relapses that occurred during the treatment follow-up time of all participants divided by the sum of follow-up time of all participants involved in certain treatment groups. ARR was estimated through negative binomial regression with robust variance estimation.

  • Annualized Relapse Rate (ARR) Before and After Receiving Alemtuzumab [ Time Frame: Baseline (Year 0 of initial studies) up to Year 4 ]
    Relapse was defined as new neurological symptoms or worsening of previous neurological symptoms with an objective change on neurological examination, attributable to MS that last for at least 48 hours, present at normal body temperature, and that were preceded by at least 30 days of clinical stability. ARR was obtained from the total number of confirmed relapses that occurred during the treatment follow-up time of all participants divided by the sum of total follow-up time of all participants involved in certain treatment groups. ARR was estimated through repeated negative binomial regression with robust variance estimation and covariate adjustment for geographic region. The IFNB-1a/Alemtuzumab switch from CAMMS323 or CAMMS324 to CAMMS03409 pre alemtuzumab reporting group consisted of the same participants as those in the corresponding post alemtuzumab reporting group.

  • Annualized Relapse Rate (ARR) Before and After Alemtuzumab Retreatment [ Time Frame: Year 1 prior to retreatment, Year 1, 2, 3 after retreatment ]
    Relapse was defined as new neurological symptoms or worsening of previous neurological symptoms with an objective change on neurological examination, attributable to MS that last for at least 48 hours, present at normal body temperature, and that were preceded by at least 30 days of clinical stability. ARR was obtained from the total number of confirmed relapses that occurred during the treatment follow-up time of all participants divided by the sum of total follow-up time of all participants involved in certain treatment groups. ARR was estimated through negative binomial regression with robust variance estimation without covariate adjustment.

  • Number of Participants With Sustained Accumulation of Disability (SAD) [ Time Frame: Baseline (Year 0) up to Year 6 ]
    SAD: defined as an increase of at least 1.5 points in Expanded Disability Status Scale (EDSS) score for participants with prior study baseline score of 0 and increase of at least 1.0 point for participants with a prior study baseline score of 1.0 or more; and the increase persisted over a 6-month consecutive period. EDSS is an ordinal scale in half-point increments that quantifies disability in participants with MS. It assesses 7 functional systems (visual, brainstem, pyramidal, cerebellar, sensory, bowel/bladder and cerebral) and ambulation. EDSS total score ranges from 0 (normal neurological examination) to 10 (death due to MS), higher scores indicating worse neurological function. Number of participants with SAD was estimated by Kaplan-Meier method and reported in this outcome measure. Baseline was defined as Year 0 of CAMMS323 and Year 0 of CAMMS324 for "alemtuzumab treatment CAMMS323 extension" group and "alemtuzumab Treatment CAMMS324 Extension" group, respectively.

  • Number of Participants With Sustained Accumulation of Disability (SAD) Before and After Alemtuzumab Treatment: 2 Year Comparison [ Time Frame: Baseline (Year 0 of initial studies) up to Year 4 ]
    SAD: defined as an increase of at least 1.5 points in EDSS score for participants with prior study baseline score of 0 and increase of at least 1.0 point for participants with a prior study baseline score of 1.0 or more; and the increase persisted over a 6-month consecutive period. EDSS is an ordinal scale in half-point increments that quantifies disability in participants with MS. It assesses 7 functional systems (visual, brainstem, pyramidal, cerebellar, sensory, bowel/bladder and cerebral) and ambulation. EDSS total score ranges from 0 (normal neurological examination) to 10 (death due to MS), higher scores indicating worse neurological function. Number of participants with SAD over 2 years before and 2 years after alemtuzumab treatment were estimated by Kaplan-Meier method and reported in this outcome measure. The IFNB-1a/Alemtuzumab switch pre alemtuzumab reporting group consisted of the same participants as those in the corresponding post alemtuzumab reporting group.


Secondary Outcome Measures:

    SRD was defined as a ≥1 point decrease in EDSS score lasting >= 6 months. SRD is only applicable to participants with a baseline EDSS score of >= 2.0. EDSS is an ordinal scale in half-point increments that quantifies disability in participants with MS. It assesses 7 functional systems (visual, brainstem, pyramidal, cerebellar, sensory, bowel/bladder and cerebral) as well as ambulation. EDSS total score ranges from 0 (normal neurological examination) to 10 (death due to MS), where higher scores indicate worse neurological function. Number of participants with SRD at Year 6 was estimated using Kaplan-Meier method and reported in this outcome measure.

  • Number of Participants With Sustained Reduction in Disability (SRD) Assessed by EDSS (After Alemtuzumab Treatment) at Year 2 of the Extension Study [ Time Frame: Extension study (CAMMS03409) baseline up to Extension Year 2 ]
    SRD was defined as a >=1 point decrease in EDSS score lasting >=6 months. SRD is only applicable to participants with a baseline EDSS score of ≥2.0. EDSS is an ordinal scale in half-point increments that quantifies disability in participants with MS. It assesses 7 functional systems (visual, brainstem, pyramidal, cerebellar, sensory, bowel/bladder and cerebral) as well as ambulation. EDSS total score ranges from 0 (normal neurological examination) to 10 (death due to MS), where higher scores indicate worse neurological function. Number of participants with SRD at Year 2 of CAMMS03409 was estimated using Kaplan-Meier method and reported in this outcome measure. The IFNB-1a/Alemtuzumab switch from CAMMS323 or CAMMS324 to CAMMS03409 pre alemtuzumab reporting group consisted of the same participants as those in the corresponding post alemtuzumab reporting group.

  • Change From Initial Study Baseline in EDSS Score at Year 3, 4, 5 and 6 [ Time Frame: Baseline (Month 0 of CAMMS323 and Month 0 of CAMMS324 for "Alemtuzumab Treatment CAMMS323 Extension" group and "Alemtuzumab Treatment CAMMS324 Extension" group, respectively), Year 3, 4, 5, 6 ]
    EDSS is an ordinal scale in half-point increments that quantifies disability in participants with MS. It assesses the 7 functional systems (visual, brainstem, pyramidal, cerebellar, sensory, bowel/bladder and cerebral) as well as ambulation. EDSS total score ranges from 0 (normal neurological examination) to 10 (death due to MS), where higher scores indicate worse neurological function. Change was calculated by subtracting baseline (Month 0 of the study CAMMS323 [NCT00530348] or CAMMS324 [NCT00548405]) value from EDSS scores at specified time points.

  • Change From Initial Study Baseline in EDSS Score Before and After Alemtuzumab Treatment: 2 Year Comparison [ Time Frame: Baseline (Year 0 of initial studies) up to Year 4 ]
    EDSS is an ordinal scale in half-point increments that quantifies disability in participants with MS. It assesses the 7 functional systems (visual, brainstem, pyramidal, cerebellar, sensory, bowel/bladder and cerebral) as well as ambulation. EDSS total score ranges from 0 (normal neurological examination) to 10 (death due to MS), where higher scores indicate worse neurological function. Change was calculated by subtracting baseline (Month 0 of the study CAMMS323 or CAMMS324 for pre alemtuzumab period or CAMMS03409 baseline for post alemtuzumab period) value, from EDSS scores at specified time points. The IFNB-1a/Alemtuzumab switch pre alemtuzumab reporting group consisted of the same participants as those in the corresponding post alemtuzumab reporting groups. Baseline was defined as Year 0 of CAMMS323 and Year 0 of CAMMS324 for "CAMMS323 participants" and "CAMMS324 participants" respectively.

  • Change From Retreatment Baseline in EDSS Score After Alemtuzumab Retreatment [ Time Frame: Retreatment baseline, Year 1, 2 and 3 after retreatment baseline ]
    EDSS is an ordinal scale in half-point increments that quantifies disability in participants with MS. It assesses the 7 functional systems (visual, brainstem, pyramidal, cerebellar, sensory, bowel/bladder and cerebral) as well as ambulation. EDSS total score ranges from 0 (normal neurological examination) to 10 (death due to MS), where higher scores indicate worse neurological function. Change was calculated by subtracting retreatment baseline (annual visit prior to the retreatment start date) value from EDSS scores at specified time points.

Enrollment: 1314
Study Start Date: August 2009
Study Completion Date: February 2016
Primary Completion Date: February 2016 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Previously treated with alemtuzumab
Alemtuzumab 12 mg per day administered through IV, once a day for 3 consecutive days (participants might receive additional cycles of alemtuzumab upon documented evidence of resumed disease activity, but not within same 12-month period)
Biological: alemtuzumab
Alemtuzumab 12 mg/day IV infusion on 5 consecutive days if the participants had no prior alemtuzumab exposure (ie, first treatment course). All subsequent treatment courses were for 3 days only.
Experimental: Previously treated with interferon beta-1a (Rebif®)
Alemtuzumab 12 mg per day administered through IV, once a day for 5 consecutive days during the first cycle and 12 mg per day administered through IV, once a day for 3 consecutive days during the second cycle, 12 months later. Participants might qualify for as-needed retreatment (12 mg per day administered through IV, once a day for 3 consecutive days) after their second fixed annual cycle.
Biological: alemtuzumab
Alemtuzumab 12 mg/day IV infusion on 5 consecutive days if the participants had no prior alemtuzumab exposure (ie, first treatment course). All subsequent treatment courses were for 3 days only.

Detailed Description:
Alemtuzumab treatment was on a fixed schedule of two treatment courses a year apart for participants who received Rebif® in one of the prior Genzyme-sponsored studies of alemtuzumab or on an as needed schedule (e.g. due to documented evidence of resumed Multiple Sclerosis [MS] activity) for participants who had already completed a fixed schedule of treatment with alemtuzumab in one of the prior Genzyme-sponsored studies. There was no comparison treatment in this study. All participants were required to return to their study site every 3 months for neurologic and other assessments. In addition, safety-related laboratory tests and surveys were performed at least monthly. Participation in the extension study was at least 48 months from enrollment. Study duration could be extended to allow participants to remain in the study until a follow-up study was available in their country or through month 60 (month 72 in USA), whichever occurred first.
