- Annualized Relapse Rate (ARR) [ Time Frame: At Week 96 ]The annualized relapse rates over 96 weeks will be calculated based on qualified relapses. Qualifying relapse is defined as occurrence of new or worsening neurological symptoms attributable to Multiple Sclerosis (MS) (for more than 24 hours, no fever, infection, injury, adverse events, and preceded by a stable or improving neurological state for greater than or equal to (=>) 30 days).
- Time to First Occurrence of 12-Week Confirmed Expanded Disability Status Scale (EDSS) Progression [ Time Frame: Baseline up to 96 weeks ]
- Total Number of New or Enlarging T2 Lesions Assessed by Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Scans [ Time Frame: At Weeks 24, 48, and 96 ]
- Total Number of Gadolinium-Enhancing (Gd+) T1 Lesions Assessed by Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Scans [ Time Frame: At Weeks 24, 48, and 96 ]
- Time to First Occurrence of 24-Week Confirmed Expanded Disability Status Scale (EDSS) Progression [ Time Frame: Baseline up to 96 weeks ]
- Change from Baseline in Patient Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS) MS Physical Function (PF) Short Form Score [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 96 ]
- Change from Baseline in Patient Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS) MS Fatigue Short Form Score [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 96 ]
- Number of Participants With Adverse Events (AEs) and Adverse Events of Special Interest (AESIs) [ Time Frame: Baseline up to Week 100 ]An AE is any untoward medical occurrence in a participant administered a pharmaceutical product, regardless of causal relationship with this treatment.
- Number of Participants With Clinically Significant Change From Baseline in Vital Signs, Laboratory Parameters and Electrocardiogram Findings [ Time Frame: Baseline up to Week 100 ]Number of participants with clinically significant change from baseline in vital signs, laboratory parameters and electrocardiogram findings will be reported.
- Absolute Concentrations of Immunoglobulin (Ig) Levels [ Time Frame: Baseline up to Week 100 ]
- Change From Baseline in Immunoglobulin (Ig) Levels [ Time Frame: Baseline up to Week 100 ]
