- Diagnosis of RRMS per McDonald criteria

- Initiated treatment with DMF, GA, teriflunomide, or fingolimod (defined as index
therapy) no earlier than January 2011 and no later than 12 months prior to the date of
medical record abstraction (i.e., patient has at least 12 months of data available in
the medical record following initiation of index treatment). Note: Patients who have
initiated the index therapy but subsequently discontinued or switched to other
therapies are allowed in this study as long as there is at least 12 months of
follow-up following the initiation of the index therapy.

- Have sufficient available medical records for data abstraction to meet the objectives
of the study, i.e., the patient was either under the medical care of the investigating
site during the entire period of the index treatment or the patient's complete MS
disease and treatment history is otherwise available at the investigating site

Summary
Brief summary
The primary objective of the study is to evaluate the real-world clinical effectiveness, as
measured by the proportion of participants relapsed at 12 months, in participants treated
with dimethyl fumarate (DMF).

Secondary objectives of the study are: To evaluate the real-world clinical effectiveness, as
measured by the proportion of participants relapsed at 12 months, in participants treated
with DMF, glatiramer acetate (GA), teriflunomide, or fingolimod both in the overall
participant cohort and in a subset of participants who were naïve to disease-modifying
therapy (DMT) and were diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS) within 3 years of starting the
index therapy; To compare relapse activity, defined as annualized relapse rate (ARR), among
participants treated with DMF, GA, teriflunomide, or fingolimod; To compare MS-related
hospitalizations among participants treated with DMF, GA, teriflunomide, or fingolimod; To
compare intravenous corticosteroid use among participants treated with DMF, GA,
teriflunomide, or fingolimod.
