Objective To report the results of Teri-LIFE, a non-interventional, real-world study of quality of life (QoL) in patients with RRMS treated with teriflunomide in the Nordic region. Methods Teri-LIFE recruited patients from Norway, Sweden, and Denmark between June 2015 and December 2016. Patients ≥18 years of age with RRMS who had already chosen to initiate treatment with teriflunomide 14 mg were eligible. Patients were followed per routine clinical practice for 24 months, with follow-up every 6 months. The primary endpoint was QoL measured by the Short Form-36 (SF-36) questionnaire. Secondary endpoints included clinical efficacy, safety, and adherence. Results Two hundred patients were recruited, 68% were treatment-naïve. The majority (71%) were female, mean (standard deviation [SD]) age was 44.1 (10.4) years. Mean (SD) time since diagnosis was 3.6 (5.9) years. Median (upper quartile, lower quartile) Expanded Disability Status Scale score was 2.0 (1.0, 2.5). Mean (SD) number of relapses in the prior 2 years was 0.8 (0.7); 69/197 (35%) patients reported no relapses during this time. A total of 118 (59%) patients remained on teriflunomide during the 24-month study period; 22% discontinued due to adverse events (AEs), 9% due to lack of efficacy, and 10% due to other reasons. Mean (SD) SF-36 scores at baseline and months 6, 12, 18 and 24 were 46.5 (10.0), 46.7 (10.4), 47.5 (9.7), 47.6 (10.5), and 47.7 (10.4), respectively, for the physical component score (PCS), and 46.6 (11.8), 48.6 (11.9), 48.4 (11.1), 48.4 (11.2), and 48.8 (10.3), respectively, for the mental component score (MCS). A repeated measures analysis of covariance showed no significant change except for baseline to 24 months on the PCS (P=0.0038). The on-treatment annualised relapse rate (95% confidence interval) was 0.17 (0.13, 0.23); 79% of patients experienced no relapses. AEs were reported by 93.5% of patients, the most common being hair thinning (26.5%), diarrhoea (23%), and fatigue (20%). Serious AEs were reported by 11% of patients. Conclusions QoL was stable over 24 months in teriflunomide-treated patients. The benefit–risk ratio, and safety and tolerability profile of teriflunomide were consistent with those observed in clinical trials.
