Ponvory is a selective sphingosine 1-phosphate receptor 1 modulator. It is thought to act by promoting the retention of certain white blood cells in the body’s lymph nodes, keeping them out of circulation and from entering the brain and spinal cord.

Ponvory is approved by the FDA for relapsing forms of multiple sclerosis, which include clinically isolated syndrome, relapsing-remitting disease (RRMS), and active secondary progressive disease, in adults.
