CO39 Real-World Assessment of Efficacy and Safety of Natalizumab Versus Fingolimod in Patients with Relapsing-Remitting Multiple Sclerosis: Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis
The efficacy and safety of natalizumab versus fingolimod for relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS) had conflicting results, according to data from various medical centers across the globe. Therefore, we performed a systematic review and meta-analysis of data from real-world evidence (RWE) studies to evaluate the efficacy and safety Parameters of Natalizumab Versus Fingolimod.

Treatments of paediatric multiple sclerosis: Efficacy and tolerance in a longitudinal follow-up study
CONCLUSION: In this real-world setting, newer DMTs showed better efficacy than interferon beta-1a on ARR and risk of new T2 lesions, with a good safety profile. Natalizumab tend to emerge as the most effective treatment.PMID:37245449 | DOI:10.1016/j.ejpn.2023.05.001 (Source: European Journal of Paediatric Neurology)

Clinical and economic evaluations of natalizumab, rituximab, and ocrelizumab for the management of relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis in Saudi Arabia
The advent of new disease-modifying therapies (DMTs), such as monoclonal antibodies (mAbs), resulted in significant changes in the treatment guidelines for Multiple sclerosis (MS) and improvement in the clinic... (Source: BMC Health Services Research)

A systematic review of the safety and efficacy of monoclonal antibodies for progressive multiple sclerosis
CONCLUSION: Based on our findings, Ocrelizumab is the most efficient monoclonal antibody for primary PMS, although it is associated with a higher risk of infection. While other monoclonal antibodies did not show significant promise in treating PMS, more research is necessary.PMID:37209514 | DOI:10.1016/j.intimp.2023.110266 (Source: International Immunopharmacology)

Evaluation of risk management in a natalizumab home infusion procedure
Rev Neurol (Paris). 2023 May 16:S0035-3787(23)00943-8. doi: 10.1016/j.neurol.2023.01.727. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTNatalizumab is a well-established disease-modifying therapy used in active multiple sclerosis (MS). The most serious adverse event is progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy. For safety reasons, hospital implementation is mandatory. The SARS-CoV-2 pandemic has deeply affected hospital practices leading French authorities to temporarily authorize to administer the treatment at home. The safety of natalizumab home administration should be assessed to allow ongoing home infusion. The aim of the study is t...

Anti-GABA-A Receptor Antibody-Mediated Epilepsia Partialis Continua After Treatment With Alemtuzumab: A Case Report
We present a young woman with prediagnosis of relapse remitting multiple sclerosis (MS), treated with interferons, natalizumab, and alemtuzumab. Six months after one and only cycle of alemtuzumab, speech arrest and behavioral changes with aggressive and anxious traits appeared. She showed increasing motor convulsions resulting in focal status epilepticus.RESULTS: Anti-GABA-A receptor antibodies in CSF and serum were confirmed in different external laboratories, in a more extensive analysis after antibodies against NMDAR, CASPR2, LGI1, GABABR, and AMPAR were ruled out during in-house examination. Clinical condition improved...
