Brief Summary:

The purpose of this randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel group study is to determine the efficacy of frexalimab in delaying the disability progression and the safety up to approximately 51 months administration of study intervention compared to placebo in male and female participants with nrSPMS (aged 18 to 60 years at the time of enrollment). People diagnosed with nrSPMS are eligible for enrollment as long as they meet all the inclusion criteria and none of the exclusion criteria. Study details include:

  • This event-driven study will have variable duration ranging from approximately 27 to 51 months.
  • The study intervention duration will vary ranging from approximately 27 to 51 months.
  • The number of scheduled visits will be up to 27 (including 3 follow-up visits) with a visit frequency of every month for the first 6 months and then every 3 months.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Time to onset of composite confirmed disability progression (cCDP) confirmed over 6 months [ Time Frame: Until Week 204 ]
    Defined as Increase from the baseline expanded disability status scale (EDSS) score of ≥1.0 point when the baseline is <5.5, or ≥0.5 point when the baseline is ≥5.5, OR Increase of ≥20% from the baseline time in the 9 hole peg test (9HPT),OR Increase of ≥20% from the baseline time in the timed 25 foot walk (T25FW) test

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Time to onset of composite cCDP confirmed over 3 months [ Time Frame: Until Week 204 ]
  2. Time to onset of individual components of the composite, confirmed over 3-months or 6-months [ Time Frame: Until Week 204 ]
  3. Time to onset of confirmed disability improvement (CDI) [ Time Frame: Until Week 204 ]
    defined as decrease from the baseline EDSS score of ≥1.0 or ≥ 0.5 points when baseline is ≤5.5 or >5.5 points, respectively, confirmed over 6 months.

  4. Number of new and/or enlarging T2hyperintense lesions per scan as detected by MRI, and number of new and/or enlarging T2-hyperintense lesions per month [ Time Frame: Until Week 204 ]
  5. Percent change in brain volume loss as detected by MRI scans at the end of study (EOS) compared to Month 6 [ Time Frame: From Week 24 to Week 204 ]
  6. Change in cognitive function at the EOS compared to baseline as assessed by symbol digit modalities test (SDMT) [ Time Frame: Baseline, Until Week 204 ]
  7. Change from baseline in multiple sclerosis impact scale 29 version 2 (MSIS-29v2) questionnaire scores over time [ Time Frame: Baseline, Until Week 204 ]
  8. Change from baseline in patient reported outcome measurement information system (PROMIS) Fatigue multiple sclerosis (MS)-8a over time [ Time Frame: Baseline, Until Week 204 ]
  9. Annualized relapse rate during the study period assessed by protocol defined adjudicated relapses [ Time Frame: Until Week 204 ]
  10. Number of participants with adverse events, SAEs, AEs leading to permanent study intervention discontinuation and AE of special interests (AESIs) [ Time Frame: Until Week 204 ]
  11. Number of participants with potentially clinically significant abnormalities (PCSAs) in laboratory tests, ECG, and vital signs during the study period [ Time Frame: Until Week 204 ]
    12-lead ECG (electrocardiogram) will be obtained using an ECG machine that automatically calculates the heart rate and measures PR, QRS, QT, and QTc intervals.

  12. Number of participants with antibody over time [ Time Frame: Until Week 204 ]
  13. Change from baseline in serum Ig levels over time [ Time Frame: Until Week 204 ]
  14. Change from baseline in plasma neurofilament light chain (NfL) levels over time [ Time Frame: Until Week 204 ]
  15. Frexalimab plasma concentration over time [ Time Frame: Until Week 204 ]
