We’re Collecting Info on Kesimpta® When Taken in Pregnancy
MotherToBaby is currently enrolling participants into an observational study examining the use of Kesimpta® (ofatumumab) when taken within 3 months before or during pregnancy. Our studies are strictly observational, which means we will never ask you to take any new medicines, experimental drugs or to change any part of your healthcare routine. If you enroll, you’ll simply be followed by our team through the remainder of your pregnancy, and your baby will be followed for a period of time after birth.
Our goal is to provide parents and their health providers with the evidence-based information that they need to make more informed healthcare decisions during pregnancy. To do that, we need your help. If you have multiple sclerosis and have taken Kesimpta® (ofatumumab) at any point in your current pregnancy, or 3 months prior to pregnancy, you may qualify for this important study.

What is a MotherToBaby Pregnancy Study?
MotherToBaby Pregnancy Studies is a research program seeking to understand how certain medications, vaccines, or health conditions may affect pregnancy. Our research will help people who are pregnant and/or breastfeeding and health providers make informed treatment decisions. All of our studies are observational: we will never ask someone to take or change any aspect of their current health routine.
