Roche said it will now submit the data to global health authorities, including the FDA and EMA.

Also, the company announced that a full pivotal phase III study to treat neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorder showed that satralizumab monotherapy achieved a 55% reduction in the risk of relapses compared to placebo in the overall population.
