32315980 In this paper we report on a patient that has been treated with ocrelizumab (a B-cell depleting monoclonal antibody) for primary progressive multiple sclerosis who developed COVID-19.
32585617 One group of such immunosuppressants used in MS comprises the anti-CD20 monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) ocrelizumab and rituximab.
32593961 Few cases of Multiple Sclerosis (MS) patients receiving ocrelizumab who contracted COVID-19 with a benign course have recently been published.
32622338 We report a series of two MS patients who developed COVID-19 while on Ocrelizumab therapy and subsequently exhibited negative SARS-CoV-2 serology. […] A 42-year-old man and 39-year-old woman with MS developed COVID-19 while on Ocrelizumab therapy.
32638107 Changes in DMTs were most common with the high-efficacy therapies alemtuzumab, cladribine, ocrelizumab, rituximab, and natalizumab. 35% made no changes to DMT prescribing. 98% expressed worry about their patients contracting COVID-19 and 78% expressed the same degree of worry about themselves. > 50% believed high-efficacy DMTs prolong viral shedding of SARS-CoV-2 and that B-cell therapies might prevent protective vaccine effects.
32671831 This includes rituximab, oblinutuzumab and ofatumumab that are used in cancer, rheumatoid arthritis and off-label in a large number of other autoimmunities and ocrelizumab in multiple sclerosis. […] However, protective neutralizing antibody and vaccination responses are predicted to be blunted until naive B cells repopulate, based on B cell repopulation kinetics and vaccination responses, from published rituximab and unpublished ocrelizumab (NCT00676715, NCT02545868) trial data, shown here.
32683304 According therapy groups there was significant difference between the groups regarding some variables: patients using ocrelizumab are most concerned about COVID-19; patients using interferon beta 1a i.m. statistically more often have frequent changes in their mood, memory problems, poor appetite, feeling of nausea or upset stomach and patients on fingolimod have bigger afraid of coming to regular visits.
32777745 In the last decades DMTs have been widely employed, and ocrelizumab represents one of the newest therapies for the relapsing remitting and progressive forms of multiple sclerosis (MS). to describe SARS-CoV-2 related pneumonia in two MS patients under ocrelizumab treatment. […] Ocrelizumab treatment is not necessarily associated to increased severity in MS patients with SARS-CoV-2 infection.
32780300 Within the cell-depleting agents, selective (ocrelizumab) or preferential (cladribine) depletion of B cells may be relatively safer than non-selective depletion of lymphocytes and innate immune cells (alemtuzumab).
32957057 We aimed to evaluate patient perspectives regarding the use of Natalizumab and anti-CD20 therapies (Rituximab and Ocrelizumab) in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. cross-sectional study conducted via voluntary survey filled in by patients with MS and related disorders receiving their infusional treatment in one MS centre in Australia, exploring their concerns regarding their therapy, their therapy and COVID-19, precautions undertaken in response to the pandemic, and factors impacting their decision-making. 170 patients completed the survey.
32977074 There were 1,145 respondents (response rate: 20%). 1,019 had a diagnosis of MS and responded completely (average age: 54.2 years, range: 20-81; 79% female; 64% relapsing remitting, 22% secondary progressive, 12% primary progressive; 88% in the USA). 748 (73%) used a DMT in the last year, primarily higher-efficacy therapies: ocrelizumab (n=238), dimethyl fumarate (n=85), fingolimod (n=80). […] Of the 7 cases who tested positive for COVID-19 (<1% of participants) (5 female; age range: 29-64 years), DMTs included dimethyl fumarate (n=2), ocrelizumab (n=1), rituximab (n=1), and a clinical trial drug (n=1).
33061471 , dimethyl fumarate (DMF), monomethyl fumarate (MMF), natalizumab, ocrelizumab, and IFN-β, among others have been previously described to increase the biological activities of NK cells especially their cytolytic potential as reported by upregulation of CD107a, and the release of perforin and granzymes.
33073348 Furthermore ocrelizumab, a humanised anti-CD20 monoclonal antibody, was the first licensed therapy in primary progressive MS.
33321356 To analyse the rate of infusion related reactions and patient experience of rapid infusions of natalizumab and ocrelizumab. […] Patients with prior exposure to at least three natalizumab or two 300mg ocrelizumab infusions were approved for rapid protocols. […] We analysed 269 rapid natalizumab infusions and 100 rapid ocrelizumab infusions. […] Infusion related reactions during the natalizumab or ocrelizumab infusions occurred in two patients (1.52%) and eight patients (8%), respectively.
33369288 Pivotal trial have shown that patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) receiving ocrelizumab had better outcomes. […] However, data on ocrelizumab in clinical practice are limited. […] The aim of this study was to evaluate the preliminary safety profile and effectiveness of ocrelizumab treatment for multiple sclerosis (MS) in a real-world clinical setting. […] We conducted a retrospective study including consecutive patients from nine public hospitals in south-eastern Spain who received ocrelizumab after it was approved. […] The preliminary results in our real-world setting show that ocrelizumab presented excellent results in suppressing disease activity with a favorable and consistent safety profile.
33370649 To evaluate clinical and laboratory effects of delaying ocrelizumab infusions during the COVID-19 pandemics in people with multiple sclerosis (pwMS). […] The following data were extracted: age, sex, multiple sclerosis (MS) phenotype: relapsing-remitting (RRMS) or primary progressive multiple sclerosis (PPMS), disease duration, Expanded Disability Status scale (EDSS), previous disease modifying therapy (DMT), number of ocrelizumab cycles prior to the lockdown, dates of first ocrelizumab infusion, last ocrelizumab infusion prior to the lockdown and delayed ocrelizumab infusion after the lockdown. […] Flow cytometry results, relapses and EDSS progression prior to the delayed ocrelizumab infusion after the lockdown were extracted. […] B cells count, when corrected for the number of previous ocrelizumab cycles and MS phenotype (RRMS or PPMS) (B=7.981, 95% C.I. […] We have not shown clinical consequences of delaying ocrelizumab due to COVID-19 pandemics. […] However, the delay in dosing of ocrelizumab was an independent predictor of repopulation of B cells.
33416999 The Sweden MS register reports a high rate (53.5%) of off-label RTX prescriptions in relation to other annually started DMTs to treat MS patients, while Danish and Norwegian neurologists have to use other anti-CD20 drugs, as ocrelizumab, in most of the cases.In this paper, we review the pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, clinical efficacy, safety profile and cost effectiveness aspects of RTX for the treatment of MS.
33480077 After adjusting for region, age, sex, progressive MS course, Expanded Disability Status Scale, disease duration, body mass index, comorbidities, and recent methylprednisolone use, therapy with an anti-CD20 agent (ocrelizumab or rituximab) was significantly associated (odds ratio [OR] = 2.37, 95% confidence interval [CI] = 1.18-4.74, p = 0.015) with increased risk of severe COVID-19.
33482590 To better understand SARS-CoV-2 infection in ocrelizumab-treated people with MS. de-identified COVID-19 electronic health record (EHR) database. database included EHRs for almost 1.2 million patients with suspected COVID-19, 130,500 of whom met the criteria for confirmed/clinically diagnosed COVID-19. […] Forty-eight (13.4%) were treated with ocrelizumab, of whom 12 (25.0%) were hospitalized and one died (2.1%). […] Similar rates of hospitalization, invasive ventilation, and death were observed in the ocrelizumab-treated and non-ocrelizumab-treated MS cohorts. […] This assessment provides evidence that COVID-19 in ocrelizumab-treated people with MS is predominantly mild to moderate in severity with most patients not requiring hospitalization; in line with data reported from the general population and MS datasets. […] Risk factors known to be associated with severe COVID-19 outcomes in the general population also appear to influence COVID-19 severity in ocrelizumab-treated people with MS. […] Case fatality rates for ocrelizumab-treated people with MS were within published ranges for the general population and other MS cohorts.
