Adherence, persistence, and discontinuation among Hispanic and African American patients with multiple sclerosis treated with fingolimod or glatiramer acetate.

CONCLUSIONS: Hispanic and African American patients with MS who initiated FTY had higher adherence than those who initiated GA, similar to the general MS population. These findings suggest that adherence should be considered in DMT selection, and racial/ethnic variations in MS disease course may not be primarily attributable to differences in DMT compliance.
