Background Secukinumab significantly improved the signs and symptoms of psoriatic arthritis (PsA) over 2 years (yrs) in the FUTURE 1 study.1
Objectives To report efficacy and safety of secukinumab through 3 yrs in an extension of the FUTURE 1 study (NCT01892436).
Methods After 2-yr core trial, patients (pts) receiving secukinumab 150/75mg s.c. entered the 3-yr extension phase. Efficacy results at Week (Wk) 156 are presented for those pts originally randomised to secukinumab (n=308) and included ACR20/50/70, PASI 75, DAS28-CRP, SF-36 PCS, HAQ-DI, dactylitis and enthesitis. Multiple imputation was used for analysis of binary variables while continuous variables are reported as observed. Analyses by anti-TNF status (naïve/inadequate response) were prespecified and reported as observed. Safety analysis included all pts (n=587) who received ≥1 dose of secukinumab.
Results Overall, 457 of the original 606 pts entered the extension study of which 435 (95.2%) pts completed 156 wks (151 [93.8%] pts in IV→150 mg group; 142 [96.6%] in IV→75 mg group; 142 [95.3%] in PBO→ secukinumab groups). Sustained clinical improvements through Wk 156 were observed across all endpoints and were seen regardless of prior anti-TNF use (Table 1). Over the entire study period (mean [±SD] exposure to secukinumab of 1025.1±372.7 days), the exposure-adjusted incidence rate with secukinumab for serious infections/infestations, candida infections, Crohn's disease, and malignant/unspecified tumors was 1.7 (27), 1.2 (17), 0.1 (2), and 0.9 (14) per 100 pt-yrs, respectively.
Conclusions Secukinumab provided sustained improvements in signs/symptoms and across multiple clinical domains of active PsA in pts who completed 3 yrs of therapy. Secukinumab was well tolerated with a favorable safety profile consistent with that previously reported.1
