About OCREVUS® (ocrelizumab)

What is ocrelizumab

Ocrelizumab is a prescription medicine used to treat adults with relapsing forms of multiple sclerosis (relapsing MS [RMS]) and for primary progressive MS (PPMS). It is given as an intravenous infusion once every 6 months.

Ocrelizumab has been proven to be effective for the treatment of relapsing MS in 2 large, identical clinical studies against REBIF (which is an active treatment currently approved for RMS). Ocrelizumab is also the first approved treatment for PPMS.

Is ocrelizumab safe to use during pregnancy?

It is not known if ocrelizumab will harm an unborn baby, as ocrelizumab has not been studied in pregnant women. Please speak with your healthcare provider if you have any questions about ocrelizumab and pregnancy. The goal of the OCREVUS Pregnancy Registry is to monitor if the use of ocrelizumab might affect women’s pregnancies and their babies. Because of this registry, other pregnant women who are exposed to ocrelizumab in the future may have more information about how their pregnancies and babies may or may not be affected.
