Supplementary notes

* ARR = annualized relapse rate.
** For mitoxantrone, the primary outcome measure for efficacy in the progressive types of MS was a composite of five elements: Expanded Disability Status Scale (EDSS) scores, Ambulation Index, number of relapses requiring treatment with steroids, months to first relapse needing treatment with steroids, and Standard Neurological Status. Data in the table for mitoxantrone have been extracted from the study; however, these were not the primary outcome measures.
***ARR for Tecfidera ranges from 44 to 53.
