IMPORTANT Dimethyl fumarate (DMF) is a severe dermal sensitizer and advance precautions need to be taken before handling this compound in an occupational exposure setting. In addition, dimethyl fumarate is known to sublimate (going from the solid to gaseous phase without turning into a liquid). This has implications for containment,respiratory protection and industrial hygiene monitoring. The majority of material safety data sheets (MSDS) or safety data sheets (SDS) are inadequate in warning of the hazards of dimethyl fumarate. Dimethyl fumarate is indicated for the treatment of relapsing forms of multiple sclerosis (MS) in adults, to include clinically isolated syndrome, relapsing-remitting disease, and active secondary progressive disease. Dimethyl fumarate is also indicated for the treatment of moderate to severe plaque psoriasis in adults in need of systemic medicinal therapy.
