12:33 EDTNVSNovartis says CLEAR Phase IIb study met primary endpoint
Novartis announced results from the CLEAR study demonstrating that Cosentyx is significantly superior to Stelara, a widely used biologic, in achieving clear or almost clear skin for psoriasis patients. The detailed findings were presented in a late-breaking research session at the 73rd Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Dermatology in San Francisco, USA. Cosentyx -- at a dose of 300 mg -- is the first and only interleukin-17A inhibitor approved to treat adult patients with moderate-to-severe plaque psoriasis. In this Phase IIIb study, Cosentyx met the primary endpoint of showing superiority to Stelara as assessed by the Psoriasis Area Severity Index 90 response, known as clear to almost clear skin at Week 16. PASI 90 is considered an important measure of treatment success by the European Medicines Agency and an optimal treatment goal for patients. In addition, completely clear skin at Week 16 was achieved by significantly more patients treated with Cosentyx than those receiving Stelara. In addition, Cosentyx demonstrated rapid onset of action and greater efficacy at all time points in the study up to Week 16, with 50% of Cosentyx patients achieving PASI 75 as early as Week 4 compared to Stelara. The CLEAR study follows the pivotal Phase III FIXTURE study, which showed Cosentyx was superior to Enbrel.
