OTEZLA REDUCES TENDER AND SWOLLEN JOINTS1
Sustained reduction in tender and swollen joint count up to 4 years1,a
aPALACE 1 study. Data as observed; includes all patients who received OTEZLA 30 mg BID, regardless of whether they were initially randomized to OTEZLA 30 mg BID or placebo patients who were re-randomized to OTEZLA at week 16 or week 24. Randomized patients who received ≥1 dose of study medication: OTEZLA 30 mg BID, n = 168; placebo, n = 168. The n at each time point represents the number of patients with available data at the time point.
During the placebo-controlled phase, significantly greater reductions in TJC and SJC were achieved with OTEZLA 30 mg BID vs placebo at week 16 (TJC: -42.9% vs -7%, respectively; SJC: -50% vs -16.7%, respectively; P < 0.0001 for both).2*
Significantly more patients on OTEZLA achieved an ACR20 response vs placebo1,3
- At week 16, more than twice as many patients treated with OTEZLA 30 mg BID achieved the primary endpoint of modified ACR20 vs placebo (64/161 [39.8%] vs 32/165 [19.4%]; P = 0.0001)†
- ACR20 response rates were sustained for up to 4 years in patients receiving OTEZLA 30mg BID‡
