Default Newest oral disease-modifying treatments haven't been as popular as expected

This article from Medscape Today (June 5, 2020) indicates that the new oral disease-modifying treatments for MS haven't been as popular as they were expected to be--and Ocrevus seems to be the favorite DMT--"Newest oral DMTs haven't yet made a big impact in the MS world":
