OTEZLA monotherapy delivers rapid and sustained efficacy in psoriatic arthritis1,2

OTEZLA monotherapy improves symptoms of psoriatic arthritis as early as week 2, with continuous improvement up to 1 year1:

  • Tender and swollen joints: At 1 year, patients taking OTEZLA 30 mg BID achieved a 77.5% reduction in SJC and a 70.4% reduction in TJC
  • Enthesitis: At week 2, patients with preexisting enthesitis experienced significant improvement with OTEZLA 30 mg BID vs placebo (-1.1 vs -0.4 mean change in GEI; P < 0.05); at 1 year, 69.8% of patients taking OTEZLA 30 mg BID from baseline achieved complete resolution of enthesitis
  • Physical function: HAQ-DI score was significantly improved at week 2 with OTEZLA 30 mg BID vs placebo (-0.13 vs -0.05; P < 0.05) with a mean reduction from baseline HAQ-DI score of -0.40 at 1 year
