or April 2016 we have selected: Lublin F, Miller DH, Freedman MS, et al., on behalf of the INFORMS study investigators. Oral fingolimod in primary progressive multiple sclerosis (INFORMS): a phase 3, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial. Lancet Neurol, 27 Jan 2016; pii: S0140-6736(15)01314-8. doi: 10.1016/S0140-6736(15)01314-8. Primary progressive multiple sclerosis (PPMS) represents around 10-15% of the clinical forms of MS. Several characteristics differentiate PPMS from the relapse-onset MS, the classical more frequent form: older age at onset, equal prevalence between sexes, less inflammatory component at the MRI, and quicker progression of disability.
