Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. 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).


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Time to First Occurrence of 12-Week Confirmed Expanded Disability Status Scale (EDSS) Progression [ Time Frame: Baseline up to 96 weeks ]
  2. Total Number of New or Enlarging T2 Lesions Assessed by Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Scans [ Time Frame: At Weeks 24, 48, and 96 ]
  3. Total Number of Gadolinium-Enhancing (Gd+) T1 Lesions Assessed by Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Scans [ Time Frame: At Weeks 24, 48, and 96 ]
  4. Time to First Occurrence of 24-Week Confirmed Expanded Disability Status Scale (EDSS) Progression [ Time Frame: Baseline up to 96 weeks ]
  5. Change from Baseline in Patient Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS) MS Physical Function (PF) Short Form Score [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 96 ]
  6. Change from Baseline in Patient Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS) MS Fatigue Short Form Score [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 96 ]
  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. Absolute Concentrations of Immunoglobulin (Ig) Levels [ Time Frame: Baseline up to Week 100 ]
  10. Change From Baseline in Immunoglobulin (Ig) Levels [ Time Frame: Baseline up to Week 100 ]

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria: - Participants are diagnosed with RMS (relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis [RRMS] or secondary progressive multiple sclerosis [SPMS] with relapses) in accordance with 2017 Revised McDonald criteria (Thompson 2018) - Participants with one or more documented relapses within the 2 years before Screening with either: a. one relapse which occurred within the last year prior to randomization, OR b. the presence of at least 1 gadolinium-enhancing (Gd+) T1 lesion within 6 months prior to randomization - Participants have Expanded Disability Status Scale (EDSS) score of 0 to 5.5 at Baseline. Participants with an EDSS score <= 2 at Screening are only eligible for participation if their disease duration (time since onset of symptoms) is no more than 10 years - Participants are neurologically stable for >= 30 days prior to both screening and baseline - Female participants must be neither pregnant nor breast-feeding and must lack child-bearing potential, as defined by either: post-menopausal or surgically sterile or use an effective method of contraception for the duration of the study - Participants have given written informed consent prior to any study-related procedure - Other protocol defined inclusion criteria could apply Exclusion Criteria: - Participants diagnosed with Progressive MS, in accordance with the 2017 Revised McDonald criteria as follows: a). Participants with Primary Progressive MS. b). Participants with secondary progressive MS without evidence of relapse.

  • Disease duration more than (>) 10 years in participants with an EDSS =< 2.0 at screening.
  • Immunologic disorder other than MS, or any other condition requiring oral, intravenous (IV) , intramuscular, or intra-articular corticosteroid therapy, with the exception of well-controlled Type 2 diabetes mellitus or well controlled thyroid disease.
  • Other protocol defined exclusion criteria could apply.
