BACKGROUND: No evidence of disease activity (NEDA) is a composite endpoint being increasingly applied as an outcome measure in clinical trials as well as proposed for individual therapeutic decisions in multiple sclerosis (MS).
OBJECTIVE: Assess the proportion of patients with relapsing-remitting MS achieving NEDA in the DECIDE study of daclizumab 150 mg subcutaneous versus intramuscular interferon beta-1a 30 µg for 96-144 weeks.
METHODS: NEDA was defined as no relapses, no onset of 12-week confirmed disability progression (CDP), no new/newly enlarging T2 hyperintense lesions (NET2), and no gadolinium-enhancing (Gd+) lesions. Logistic regression models adjusted for baseline covariates compared treatment groups for baseline to week 96, weeks 0-24, and weeks 24-96.
RESULTS: From baseline to week 96, more daclizumab versus intramuscular interferon beta-1a patients achieved NEDA (24.6% vs 14.2%; odds ratio (OR; 95% confidence interval): 2.059 (1.592-2.661); p < 0.0001). ORs for clinical NEDA (no relapses, no CDP) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) NEDA (no NET2, no Gd+ lesions) were 1.651 (1.357-2.007; p < 0.0001) and 2.051 (1.628-2.582; p < 0.0001), respectively. ORs in favor of daclizumab for weeks 24-96 were consistently higher than for weeks 0-24.
CONCLUSION: More daclizumab versus intramuscular interferon beta-1a patients achieved NEDA early in DECIDE, with effects increasing over time.
