Week 24 results of FINCH 1, an ongoing, randomized, double-blind, placebo- and active-controlled Phase 3 study of filgotinib, an investigational, oral, selective JAK1 inhibitor, in adults with moderately-to-severely active rheumatoid arthritis (RA). FINCH 1 evaluated filgotinib versus adalimumab or placebo, on a stable background dose of methotrexate in patients with prior inadequate response to methotrexate. The study achieved its primary endpoint for both doses of filgotinib in the proportion of patients achieving an American College of Rheumatology 20% response (ACR20) compared to placebo at week 12.
Week 24 results of FINCH 3, an ongoing, randomized, double-blind, active-controlled Phase 3 study of filgotinib in adults with moderately-to-severely active RA. FINCH 3 evaluated filgotinib in combination with methotrexate (MTX) and as monotherapy in MTX-naïve patients. The study achieved its primary endpoint in the proportion of patients achieving an ACR20 response at week 24. The proportion of patients achieving the primary endpoint of ACR20 response at week 24 was significantly higher for filgotinib 200 mg plus MTX and filgotinib 100 mg plus MTX compared with MTX alone.
Interim safety information from four studies of filgotinib for the treatment of RA. The data include 24 week results of the ongoing Phase 3 FINCH 1, 2 and 3 trials and updated week 156 safety data from the Phase 2b DARWIN 3 long-term extension study in patients with RA.
