Pregnancy Outcomes in Patients With MS Following Exposure to Ofatumumab: Updated Results From the Novartis Safety Database
Multiple Sclerosis
P9 - Poster Session 9 (5:30 PM-6:30 PM)
3-014
Ofatumumab, a fully human anti-CD20 monoclonal antibody with a monthly dosing s.c. regimen, is approved for treating relapsing MS (RMS) in adults. As per ofatumumab’s label, women of childbearing potential should use effective contraception during treatment and for at least 6 months after discontinuation of ofatumumab. Clinical data on the effect of ofatumumab treatment on pregnancy outcomes are currently limited.
To report the latest cumulative outcomes in women with multiple sclerosis (MS) exposed to ofatumumab during or prior to pregnancy.
The Novartis Safety Database collected cases from clinical trials as well as through a postmarketing pharmacovigilance non-interventional PRegnancy outcomes Intensive Monitoring (PRIM) study, where data from spontaneously reported pregnancies were collected using a set of targeted structured checklists. Pregnancy outcomes in women with MS exposed to ofatumumab during pregnancy or 6 months prior to last menstrual period (LMP) were analyzed and will be reported from the Novartis Safety Database (data cutoff date: September-25-2022). Pregnancy and infant outcomes including congenital anomalies, infections, vaccinations, and developmental delays were collected from the reporting of pregnancy up to 1 year of infant age.

At prior cutoff date of March-25-2022, there were 61 exposed pregnancies with 30 known outcomes and 17 live births after maternal exposure to ofatumumab during pregnancy or 6 months prior to LMP. No congenital anomalies, reports of B-cell depletion, immunoglobulin/hematological abnormalities, or serious infections were reported. Updated pregnancy outcomes with a cutoff date of Sep-25-2022 from the Novartis Safety Database will be presented during the congress.

Reporting the latest data on pregnancy outcomes after exposure to ofatumumab will provide updated information to healthcare professionals who treat people with MS of childbearing potential. In addition to the Novartis sponsored PRIM initiative, a prospective observational exposure registry on maternal and infant outcomes in patients exposed to ofatumumab is also currently underway.
