Authors' recomendations: No evidence was found comparing the three trademarks of commercially available dimethyl-fumarate in Argentina: Tecfidera® (Biogen), Catira® (Bagó) and Dimeful® (Gador). Based on the Argentina National Agency for Drugs, Food and Medical Technology (ANMAT), the three trademarks contain the same drug, at the same dose and they are approved for the same indications. The pivotal clinical trials leading to dimethyl fumarate approval have been conducted with the original trademark Tecfidera®. No clinical trials with Catira® or Dimeful® have been found.
