OBJECTIVE Assess ustekinumab efficacy (week 24/week 52) and safety (week 16/week 24/week 60) in patients with active psoriatic arthritis (PsA) despite treatment with conventional and/or biological anti-tumour necrosis factor (TNF) agents. METHODS In this phase 3, multicentre, placebo-controlled trial, 312 adults with active PsA were randomised (stratified(More)
OBJECTIVES To investigate baricitinib (LY3009104, formerly INCB028050), a novel, oral inhibitor of JAK1/JAK2 in patients with moderate to severe rheumatoid arthritis (RA) despite treatment with methotrexate. METHODS In this phase IIb study, 301 patients were randomised 2:1:1:1:1 to receive once daily doses of placebo or 1, 2, 4 or 8 mg baricitinib for 12(More)
BACKGROUND Baricitinib is an oral, reversible, selective Janus kinase 1 and 2 inhibitor. METHODS In this phase III, double-blind 24-week study, 684 biologic disease-modifying antirheumatic drug (DMARD)-naïve patients with rheumatoid arthritis and inadequate response or intolerance to ≥1 conventional synthetic DMARDs were randomly assigned 1:1:1 to placebo(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the efficacy of clazakizumab, a monoclonal antibody with high affinity and specificity for the interleukin-6 (IL-6) cytokine, in psoriatic arthritis (PsA). METHODS In this randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, dose-ranging study (ClinicalTrials. gov identifier: NCT01490450), patients with active PsA and an inadequate response(More)
OBJECTIVES To compare efficacy and safety of various doses of tofacitinib, an oral Janus kinase inhibitor, with placebo in patients with active ankylosing spondylitis (AS, radiographic axial spondyloarthritis). METHODS In this 16-week (12-week treatment, 4-week washout), phase II, multicentre, dose-ranging trial, adult patients with active AS were(More)
OBJECTIVES CCX354-C is a specific, orally administered antagonist of the C-C chemokine receptor 1, which regulates migration of monocytes and macrophages to synovial tissue. This clinical trial evaluated the safety and efficacy of CCX354-C in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). METHODS CARAT-2 is a 12-week double-blind, randomised, placebo controlled(More)
OBJECTIVE Clazakizumab is a humanized monoclonal antibody that binds to the interleukin-6 (IL-6) cytokine. This study was undertaken to evaluate the efficacy and safety of clazakizumab in combination with methotrexate (MTX) or clazakizumab monotherapy versus MTX alone in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and an inadequate response to MTX.
