Only 14% of the survey respondents had registered in the Zinbryta REMS program at the time of this survey, but roughly half predict that they will have some patients on the new DMT within the next six months. The outlook is rosier for Roche's Ocrevus which could be available by year end. Many neurologists anticipate using Ocrevus as soon as it becomes available with 40% of the respondents anticipating a decrease in their use of Tysabri once Ocrevus hits the market.
