Fingolimod in real life study reflects trial results

A study of 105 people taking fingolimod (Gilenya) at a Swiss clinic found that over a year the annual relapse rate was reduced by 44%, and 38% showed no disease activity (no relapse, no new lesions, EDSS stable).  Side effect frequency was similar to that reported in the trials.
