Abstract

The introduction of oral disease-modifying drugs (DMDs) in addition to the available, injectable, ones for Relapsing-Remitting Multiple Sclerosis (RRMS) could be expected to improve medication persistence due to a greater acceptability of the route of administration. Aim of the study was to compare the proportion of patients discontinuing injectable DMDs (interferon beta 1a/1b, pegylated interferon, glatiramer acetate) with those discontinuing oral DMDs (dimethylfumarate and teriflunomide) during an observation period of at least 12 months. Secondary aims were to compare the time to discontinuation and the reasons for discontinuation between the two groups and to explore the demographic and clinical factors associated with DMD discontinuation.
