“I expect a trial [of ofatumumab] in progressive disease. As a clinical scientist, I would love to see confirmation of the ORATORIO data with a similar or identical approach. I understand that the company is still deliberating on this.”EU Key Opinion Leader
“We are currently using Ocrevus second-line, but in some cases first-line too. We have no barriers to prescribing, not from my standpoint.

Finding infusion chairs is improving. I don’t know that there are any big reimbursement issues, although I think it’s an evolving story.”North American Key Opinion Leader
