Clinical Trial 44689

Long Beach, CA 90806


Primary Objective:

To determine the efficacy of SAR442168 compared to placebo in delaying disability progression in primary progressive multiple sclerosis (PPMS)

Secondary Objectives:

To evaluate efficacy of SAR442168 compared to placebo on clinical endpoints, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) lesions, cognitive performance, physical function, and quality of life To evaluate safety and tolerability of SAR442168 To evaluate population pharmacokinetics (PK) of SAR442168 in PPMS and its relationship to efficacy and safety To evaluate pharmacodynamics of SAR442168

Inclusion criteria :

- 18 to 55 years of age inclusive

- Diagnosis of PPMS according to the 2017 McDonald criteria

- Expanded disability status scale (EDSS) between 2.0 to 6.5 points, inclusive at screening

- Disease duration from the onset of MS symptoms of <15 years if screening EDSS score of >5.0 OR <10 years if screening EDSS score of ≤5.0.

- Positive cerebrospinal fluid oligoclonal bands and/or elevated Immunoglobulin G (IgG) index either during screening or documented previous history.

- Contraceptive use consistent with local regulations for individuals participating in clinical studies

Exclusion criteria:

- Participant has conditions that would adversely affect study participation such as short life expectancy.

- History of organ transplant.
