Current Secondary Outcome Measures  ICMJE
 (submitted: March 12, 2020)
  • Anualized Relapse Rate [ Time Frame: Up to 96 weeks ]
  • Percentage of Participants with MS Relapse [ Time Frame: Up to 96 weeks ]
  • Progression of Disability on the Expanded Disability Status Scale (EDSS) [ Time Frame: Day 1, 85,169, 253, 337, 421, 505, 589, 673 ]
    The EDSS is used to measure and evaluate MS patients' level of functioning. The EDSS provides a total score on a scale that ranges from 0 to 10. The first levels 1.0 to 4.5 refer to people with a high degree of ambulatory ability and the subsequent levels 5.0 to 9.5 refer to the loss of ambulatory ability. The range of main categories include (0) = normal neurologic examination; to (5) = ambulatory without aid or rest for 200 meters; disability severe enough to impair full daily activities; to (10) = death due to MS.
  • Timed 25-foot Walk Test (T25-FW) Scores [ Time Frame: Day 1, 85,169, 253, 337, 421, 505, 589, 673 ]
    The T25-FW is a reliable quantitative mobility and leg function performance test based on a timed 25-foot walk. The subject is directed to one end of a clearly marked 25-foot course and is instructed to walk 25 feet as quickly as possible, but safely. Subjects are allowed to use assistive devices (canes, crutches, walkers) as needed. The time is calculated from when the lead foot crosses the start point to when the subject has reached the 25-foot mark. The task is immediately administered again by having the subject walk back the same distance. The score for the T25-FW is the average of the 2 completed trials.
  • EuroQol Group Health Outcome Measure (EQ-5D-5L) Score [ Time Frame: Day 1,169, 337, 505, 673 ]
    The EQ-5D-5L is an instrument designed to assess decrements in health. The EQ-5D-5L includes a Visual Analog Scale (VAS) and a descriptive system that defines health in terms of 5 dimensions: Mobility, Self-Care, Usual Activities, Pain/Discomfort, and Anxiety/Depression. Each dimension has 5 response categories corresponding to the level of severity (i.e., no problems, slight problems, moderate problems, severe problems, and unable to/extreme problems).
  • 12-item Short Form Health Survey (SF-12) [ Time Frame: Day 1, 169, 337, 505, 673 ]
    Quality of life will be assessed using the 12-item Short-Form health survey Version 2.

Official Title  ICMJE A Phase 3 Open Label Study to Evaluate the Long-term Safety and Tolerability of ALKS 8700 in Adults With Relapsing Remitting Multiple Sclerosis
Brief Summary The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the long-term safety and tolerability of ALKS 8700 for the treatment of Relapsing Remitting Multiple Sclerosis (RRMS). The secondary objective of this study is to evaluate treatment effect over time in adult participants with RRMS treated with ALKS 8700.
