AGNOS: An 18-month, Open-label, Multi-Center Study to Assess the Effect of Ofatumumab 20mg SC Monthly in Treatment Naïve, Very Early Relapsing Remitting Multiple Sclerosis Patients Benchmarked Against Healthy Controls on Select Outcomes.


This study will evaluate the impact of ofatumumab in Relapsing Remitting Multiple Sclerosis (RRMS) participants that are very early in the course of their disease using clinical and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) outcomes. The study will also assess changes in disease using monitoring techniques including digital biometric device use, biomarker analysis and non-conventional MRI. Select outcomes in the ofatumumab treated group will be compared to a group of Healthy participants to determine if there are similarities between the groups after the patients with MS undergo treatment with ofatumumab.
