According to Genentech, Ocrevus was the first investigational medicine to show such positive results in patients with both primary progressive and relapsing forms of MS. The company submitted data from all three studies to regulatory authorities in mid-2016, which paved the way for marketing and commercialization of Ocrevus to treat RMS and PPMS. On June 28, 2016, Genentech announced that the company’s Biologics License Application for Ocrevus had been accepted for FDA review, and that the therapy was granted Priority Review, accelerating the review process. All those efforts resulted in the FDA’s decision to approved Ocrevus on March 28, 2017.
