From JAMA Neurology (February 2020; first published October 2019), "Infection risks among patients with multiple sclerosis treated with fingolimod, natalizumab, rituximab, and injectable therapies." The researchers found that the beta interferons and Copaxone (glatiramer acetate) had the lowest infection rate, and rituximab had the highest.
