Brief Summary:
This double-blind, double-dummy study will evaluate the safety and efficacy of ocrelizumab compared with fingolimod in children and adolescents with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis aged between 10 and < 18 years over a duration of at least 96 weeks.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Relapsing-Remitting Multiple Sclerosis Drug: Ocrelizumab Other: Ocrelizumab Placebo Drug: Fingolimod Other: Fingolimod Placebo Phase 3

Detailed Description:
This Phase III randomized, double-blind, double-dummy, multicenter study will evaluate the safety and efficacy of ocrelizumab administered by IV infusion every 24 weeks compared with fingolimod taken orally daily, in children and adolescents with Multiple Sclerosis aged between 10 and < 18 years. The study plans to enroll 233 patients in a 1:1 randomization (ocrelizumab:fingolimod), globally. This study consists of a double-blind, double dummy period in which patients will be treated with either active ocrelizumab or active fingolimod for at least 96 weeks. Patients who complete the double-blind period will be offered the possibility to enter an optional open-label extension treatment period of at least 144 weeks with ocrelizumab.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Ocrelizumab
Participants will receive Ocrelizumab by IV infusion every 24 weeks. The first dose is given as dual infusions of half the dose of ocrelizumab on Days 1 and 15 and subsequent doses are given as single infusions of ocrelizumab every 24 weeks. Participants will also receive a placebo of fingolimod (administered as QD capsule).
Drug: Ocrelizumab
Ocrelizumab will be administered at a dose of 600 mg by IV infusion on Day 1 and Day 15 (half the dose, 2 weeks apart) and every 24 weeks thereafter.

Other: Fingolimod Placebo
Fingolimod placebo will be administsred daily as a capsule.

Active Comparator: Fingolimod
Participants will receive Fingolimod PO QD as per the prescribing information provided with fingolimod. Patients will also receive a placebo of ocrelizumab (administered as IV infusions on Days 1 and 15, and every 24 weeks thereafter).
Other: Ocrelizumab Placebo
Ocrelizumab placebo will be administered by IV infusion on day 1 and Day 15 and every 24 weeks thereafter.

Drug: Fingolimod
Fingolimod will be administered daily as 0.5 mg capsule.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Annualized relapse rate (ARR) [ Time Frame: Baseline up to approximately 4 years ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :

  3. Annualized relapse rate (ARR) by Week 96 [ Time Frame: Baseline up to Week 96 ]
  4. Number of T1 Gd lesions at Week 12 [ Time Frame: Week 12 ]
  5. Incidence and severity of adverse events, with severity determined according to National Cancer Institute Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events, Version 5.0 (NCI CTCAE v5.0) [ Time Frame: Baseline up to approximately 8 years ]
  6. Prevalence of ADAs at baseline and incidence of ADAs during the study [ Time Frame: Baseline up to approximately 8 years ]
