Anyone knows about BG12 and SPMS?

Discuss Tecfidera (BG-12, dimethyl fumarate) as an oral treatment for multiple sclerosis.

With BG12 likely to be next the next MS drug to be approved, any information about its effect on SPMS?

The two major phase III trials yielding drug approval by the FDA (CONFIRM http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22992072 and DEFINE http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/?ter ... ate+DEFINE) were both on patients with relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis.

I couldn't find any data on progressive forms of MS. Let me know if you come across anything.
