Novartis just released this. I haven’t read it carefully yet but it does say they submitted Fingolimod’s FDA and EMEA applications in December.

Are they thinking this may help with progressive MS?

My specialist ran a trial for Fingolimod. She said it was better for RRMS and that they would be conducting a trial for the PPMS/SPMS? version later this year.
