    A.3Full title of the trial
    RItuximab Long-Term DOSE Trial in Multiple Sclerosis – RIDOSE-MS
    A randomized trial of long-term dosage of rituximab in multiple sclerosis

    The RIDOSE-MS trial is a multi-centre trial of long-term treatment with rituximab in MS, randomised between two different dosing regimens.
    Population: Patients with RRMS that has completed the RIFUND-MS trial in either the rituximab or DMF arm. In addition, patients will be recruited that has not participated in the RIFUND trial but has been treated with rituximab with the same protocol as in the RIFUND trial as part of clinical practice.
    Intervention: Treatment with rituximab (Mabthera®) 500 mg every six months. Both the previous rituximab and DMF arms from the RIFUND trial will be treated with rituximab in the RIDOSE trial.
    Control: After one year of treatment in RIDOSE-MS, patients will be randomised 1:1 to either continue with 500 mg every 6 months or 500 mg every 12 months and continue on this treatment schedule for another 3 years.
    Outcome: Primary outcome will be the proportion of patients remaining with no evidence of disease activity (NEDA) -3 over the randomised period of 3 years. As secondary endpoints progression of disability, brain atrophy, cognitive function and level of serum Neurofilament-Light will be evaluated. In addition, Patient-related outcome scales measuring fatigue, work ability and treatment satisfaction will be analysed.

    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    A subject will be eligible for inclusion in this study if all of the following criteria apply:

    • Diagnosis of Relapsing Remitting MS according to the 2017 revised McDonald criteria OR one demyelinating episode in conjunction with at least one asymptomatic high intensity T2 lesion with size and location compatible with MS
    • The patient has completed the RIFUND-MS trial and is treated with either of the study medications rituximab or DMF at the last visit of the RIFUND trial OR has been treated with rituximab with a dose regimen of 500 – 1000 mg followed by 500 mg every 6 months* for a total of up to two years as part of clinical practice
    • Age 20 – 52 years (inclusive)
    • EDSS 0 – 5,5 (inclusive)
    • The patient is willing and able to give written informed consent, according to the judgement of the investigator.
    • In fertile females, willing to comply with effective contraceptive methods. These include birth control pills, surgical sterilization of patient or partner or intrauterine device. Non-fertile women is defined as more than 12 months of amenorrhea without an alternative medical cause or, in case of ambiguities, an FSH level in the postmenopausal range.
    * Occasional extended dose interval for up to 12 months in conjunction with the COVID epidemic is allowed
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria

    • Time to first relapse for the two dosing regimens
    • Treatment effect evaluated by MRI
    o Proportion without new/enlarging T2 lesions
    o Evolution of brain atrophy measured as brain parenchymal fraction (BPF) and corpus callosum area or -volume

    o Proportion of patient with confirmed progression in EDSS according to pre-specified criteria
    o The mean change in EDSS over the trial period
    • Treatment effect evaluated via levels of Neurofilament-Light protein in serum
    o Serum will be stored from blood samples each six month during the study, in total nine occasions
    • Treatment effect evaluated via levels of Neurofilament-Light protein in the CSF
    o The patients will be asked to participate in this part as an optional study involving LP at three occasions.
    • Time to discontinuation of dosing regimen allocation, ie “dose survival” analysis.
    • The occurrence of hypogammaglobulinaemia in the two dose arms
    • The occurrence of neutropenia in the two dose arms
