Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Total Number of Gadolinium-Enhancing T1 Lesions Observed on MRI Scans of the Brain [ Time Frame: Week 12 to Week 24 ]
    Mean of total number of gadolinium-enhancing T1 lesions observed on MRI scans of the brain at Weeks 12, 16, 20, 24 was determined using average imputation method.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Annualized Protocol Defined Relapse Rate at Week 24 [ Time Frame: Week 24 ]
    Adjusted annualized relapse rate for geographical region.

  • Percentage of Participants Who Remained Relapse Free at Week 24 [ Time Frame: Week 24 ]
    Percentage of participants who remained relapse free at week 24 were reported.

  • Change From Baseline in Total Volume of T2 Lesions on MRI Scans of the Brain at Week 24 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 24 ]
    Change from baseline in total volume of T2 lesions on MRI scans of the Brain at week 24 was reported.

  • Total Number of New Gadolinium-Enhancing T1 Lesions Observed by MRI Scans of the Brain [ Time Frame: Weeks 4 to Week 24 ]
    Total number of new gadolinium-enhancing T1 lesions observed by MRI scans of the brain were reported.

  • Total Number of Gadolinium-Enhancing T1 Lesions at Weeks [ Time Frame: Weeks 4 to Week 24 ]
    Total number of gadolinium-enhancing T1 lesions at weeks were reported.
