Corrona and the National Multiple Sclerosis Society Announce intent to Collaborate on a Registry

October 23, 2017

Corrona, LLC and the National Multiple Sclerosis Society have announced their intent to collaborate on the launch of the Corrona Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Registry to study the comparative safety and effectiveness of approved MS therapies. The first patient has been enrolled, with initial recruitment goals to register approximately 5,000 people with MS. This national, observational registry will collect and analyze longitudinal outcomes associated with multiple sclerosis therapies.

The MS registry is Corrona's sixth patient registry, adding to existing North American registries in rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis and spondyloarthritis, psoriasis, inflammatory bowel disease, and a rheumatoid arthritis registry in Japan. The registry collects data from patients with MS and their treating neurologists through questionnaires and includes both physician assessments and patient-reported outcomes.  Corrona's team of biostatisticians and epidemiologists will collaborate with the National MS Society, participating academic and private practice neurologists, as well as supporting pharmaceutical companies, to study the comparative safety and effectiveness of approved MS therapies.

Corrona's collaboration with the National MS Society builds upon its successful ongoing collaboration for its Psoriasis registry with dermatologists and the National Psoriasis Foundation. "Corrona is honored to partner with the National MS Society and U.S. neurologists to create a national MS registry that can help guide treatment decisions for patients based on real-word comparative effectiveness and safety analyses." said Dr. Jeff Greenberg, Chief Scientific Officer of Corrona.
