Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change From Baseline in the Average Number of Time Constant 1 (T1) Contrast-enhanced Lesions (CELs) Over On-treatment Scans [ Time Frame: Baseline (Weeks -8, -4 and 0), Treatment Period (Weeks 12, 16 and 20) ]
    T1 CELs were measured using Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scans. Baseline value was calculated as the average number of T1 CELs during the 3 visits in the Baseline Control Period (Weeks -8, -4 and 0) and On-treatment value was calculated as the average number of T1 CELs during the 3 visits in the treatment period (Weeks 12, 16 and 20). The change from baseline in average number of T1 CELs was reported.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Total Number of Time Constant 1 (T1) Contrast-enhanced Lesions (CELs) [ Time Frame: Weeks 12, 16, 20, 24, 28 and 36 ]
    The number of T1 CELs were measured using MRI scans.

  • Change From Baseline in Total Number of Time Constant 1 (T1) Contrast-enhanced Lesions (CELs) at Weeks 12, 16, 20, 24, 28 and 36 [ Time Frame: Baseline (Weeks -8, -4 and 0), Weeks 12, 16, 20, 24, 28 and 36 ]
    T1 CELs were measured using MRI scans. Baseline was calculated as the average number of T1 CELs during the 3 visits in the Baseline Control Period (Weeks -8, -4 and 0).

  • Change From Baseline in Total Volume of Time Constant 1 (T1) Contrast-enhanced Lesions (CELs) at Weeks 12, 16, 20, 24, 28 and 36 [ Time Frame: Baseline (Weeks -8, -4, 0), Week 12, 16, 20, 24, 28 and 36 ]
    T1 CELs were measured using MRI scans. Baseline was calculated as the average number of T1 CELs during the 3 visits in the Baseline Control Period (Weeks -8, -4 and 0).

  • Total Number of New or Newly Enlarging Time Constant 2 (T2) Lesions [ Time Frame: Weeks 12, 16, 20, 24, 28 and 36 ]
    T2 lesions were measured using MRI scans.

  • Change From Week 0 in Total Number of Time Constant 1 (T1) Contrast-enhanced Lesions (CELs) at Weeks 12, 16, 20, 24, 28 and 36 [ Time Frame: Week 0, 12, 16, 20, 24, 28 and 36 ]
    T1 CELs were measured using MRI scans.

  • Change From Week 0 in Total Volume of Time Constant 1 (T1) Contrast-enhanced Lesions (CELs) at Weeks 12, 16, 20, 24, 28 and 36 [ Time Frame: Weeks 0, 12, 16, 20, 24, 28 and 36 ]
    T1 CELs were measured using MRI scans.

  • Mean Annualized Relapse Rate [ Time Frame: Week 20 ]
    Relapse was defined as new, worsening or recurrent neurological symptoms attributed to multiple sclerosis that last for at least 24 hours without fever or infection, or adverse reaction to prescribed medication, preceded by a stable or improving neurological status of at least 30 days. These new or worsening symptoms should be noted by the subject and must be accompanied by at least one of the following: An increase of greater than or equal to (>=) 1 grade in >=2 functional scales of the Expanded Disability Status Scale (EDSS) or an increase of >=2 grades in 1 functional scale of the EDSS or an increase of >= 0.5 or an increase of >=1.0 in EDSS if the previous EDSS was 0. Annualized Relapse Rate was calculated as = 365.25 x (Number of relapses during Treatment Period) per (Number of days on treatment during Treatment Period).

  • Time to First Relapse [ Time Frame: Baseline up to Week 36 ]
    Relapse was defined as new, worsening or recurrent neurological symptoms attributed to multiple sclerosis that last for at least 24 hours without fever or infection, or adverse reaction to prescribed medication, preceded by a stable or improving neurological status of at least 30 days. These new or worsening symptoms should be noted by the subject and must be accompanied by at least one of the following: An increase of greater than or equal to (>=) 1 grade in >=2 functional scales of the Expanded Disability Status Scale (EDSS) or an increase of >=2 grades in 1 functional scale of the EDSS or an increase of >= 0.5 or an increase of >=1.0 in EDSS if the previous EDSS was 0. Time to first relapse was defined as the time in days from the date of first dose of study treatment to the date of first multiple sclerosis relapse.

  • Change From Baseline in Total Expanded Disability Status Scale (EDSS) Score at Week 20 [ Time Frame: Baseline (Week 0) and Week 20 ]
    EDSS is an ordinal scale in half-point increments that qualifies disability in subjects with Multiple Sclerosis. It consists of 8 ordinal rating scales assessing seven functional systems (visual, brainstem, pyramidal, cerebellar, sensory, bowel/bladder and cerebral) as well as any other neurological findings due to Multiple Sclerosis. Total EDSS score ranges from 0 (normal neurological examination) to 10 (death due to MS). Baseline was defined as the last measurement taken prior to the first dose of study drug (Week 0).

  • Change From Baseline in Total Multiple Sclerosis Functional Composite (MSFC) Score at Week 20 [ Time Frame: Baseline (Week 0) and Week 20 ]
    The MSFC is a multidimensional clinical outcome measure which consists of three sub-tests; Timed 25-Foot Walk, 9-Hole Peg Test and Paced Auditory Serial Addition Test-3(PASAT-3). The Timed 25-Foot Walk is a quantitative measure of lower extremity function. The 9-Hole Peg Test is a quantitative measure of upper extremity (arm and hand) function. The PASAT is a measure of cognitive function that specifically assesses auditory information processing speed and flexibility, as well as calculation ability. Standardized results (Z-scores) of these sub-tests and the overall MSFC Z-score as an average of these three Z-scores was calculated. Higher Z-scores reflect better neurological function and a positive change from baseline indicates improvement. An increase in score indicates an improvement (range -3 to +3). Baseline was defined as the last measurement taken prior to the first dose of study drug (Week 0).

  • Number of Subjects With Treatment-emergent Adverse Events (TEAEs), Serious TEAEs, TEAEs Leading to Death, TEAEs Leading to Discontinuation [ Time Frame: Baseline up to Week 25 ]
    An adverse event (AE) was defined as any untoward medical occurrence in a subject which does not necessarily have a causal relationship with the study drug. An AE was defined as any unfavourable and unintended sign (including an abnormal laboratory finding), symptom, or disease temporally associated with the use of study drug, whether or not considered related to the study drug or worsening of pre-existing medical condition, whether or not related to study drug. A serious adverse event (SAE) was an AE that resulted in any of the following outcomes: death; life threatening; persistent/significant disability/incapacity; initial or prolonged inpatient hospitalization; congenital anomaly/birth defect or was otherwise considered medically important. Treatment-emergent adverse events are defined as any adverse event with a start date on or after the date of first dose and within 28 days after the date of last dose in the current study. TEAEs include both Serious TEAEs and non-serious TEAEs.

  • Number of Subjects Experiencing Injection Site Reactions (ISRs) [ Time Frame: Baseline up to Week 22 ]
    Treatment-emergent ISRs were defined as any ISR with a start date on or after the date of first dose and within 7 days after the date of last dose in the current study. Injection site reactions were identified as erythema, induration, pruritus, nodules and/or cysts, ecchymosis, pain and local edema.
