Post hoc data analysis of the DEFINE and CONFIRM trials showed that a higher percentage of patients with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS) achieved no evidence of disease activity (NEDA) with delayed-release dimethyl fumarate (DMF) compared with placebo. The results were published in the European Journal of Neurology.1
NEDA is a relatively new composite outcome that is being used more often to measure therapeutic response in multiple sclerosis. NEDA is comprised of 3 factors: no clinical relapse, no disability progression measured by the Expanded Disability Status Scale (EDSS) for 12 weeks, and no evidence of disease activity on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
