As described in the treatment arm
- Annualized Relapse Rate [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
- Change in 14-item Treatment Satisfaction Questionnaire for Medication (TSQM-14) scores. [ Time Frame: Baseline to 12 months ]TSQM-14 is an instrument to assess patient's satisfaction with medication, providing scores on four scales: Side effects, effectiveness, convenience and global satisfaction.
- Change in Short-Form 36 (SF-36) scores. [ Time Frame: Baseline to 12 months ]SF-36 is a self-administered, generic health status questionnaire consisting of 36 questions that measure 8 health concepts: physical functioning, role limitations due to physical problems, bodily pain, general health perception, vitality, social functioning, role limitations due to emotional problems and mental health.
- Change in Modified Fatigue Impact Scale (MFIS-5) scores. [ Time Frame: Baseline to 12 months ]MFIS-5 is a modified form of the Fatigue Impact Scale that consists of five questions that assess the impact of fatigue on physical, cognitive, and psychosocial functioning, with five response levels ranging from 0 ("Never") to 4 ("Almost always"). Total scores range from 0 to 20, with higher scores representing a greater impact of fatigue.
- Change in Beck Depression Inventory (BDI-7) scores. [ Time Frame: Baseline to 12 months ]BDI-7 is a self-report inventory for measuring the severity of depression on a 7-item scale.
- Change in Work Productivity and Impairment Questionnaire: Multiple Sclerosis (WPAI-MS) scores. [ Time Frame: Baseline to 12 months ]The Work Productivity and Activity Impairment (WPAI) questionnaire is a validated instrument to measure impairments in work and activities. The WPAI yields four types of scores: 1. Absenteeism (work time missed) 2. Presenteesism (impairment at work / reduced on-the-job effectiveness) 3. Work productivity loss (overall work impairment / absenteeism plus presenteeism) 4. Activity Impairment. WPAI outcomes are expressed as impairment percentages, with higher numbers indicating greater impairment and less productivity.
- Change in Morisky 8-item Medication Adherence Scale (MMAS-8) scores. [ Time Frame: Baseline to 12 months ]MMAS-8 is a self-reporting tool to facilitate the identification of barriers to and behaviors associated with adherence to chronic medications. Scores on the MMAS-8 range from 0-8, with scores of less than 6 reflecting low adherence.
- Change in Patient-reported Expanded Disability Status Scale (patient-reported EDSS) scores. [ Time Frame: Baseline to 12 months ]The patient-reported EDSS measures disability status based on patient report of degree of difficulty in eight different functional areas (on a 4-point scale), and overall function, taking into account the eight areas and descriptions of gait.
- Proportion of patients experiencing a relapse. [ Time Frame: Baseline to 12 months ]
- Proportion of patients with relapses associated with hospitalizations. [ Time Frame: Baseline to 12 months ]
- Proportion of patients with relapses associated with steroid use. [ Time Frame: Baseline to 12 months ]
