MorphoSys's Licensee Janssen Announces Top-line Phase 3 Results for Guselkumab (Tremfya(R)) in Adults with Active Psoriatic Arthritis

 

MorphoSys AG (FSE: MOR; Prime Standard Segment; MDAX & TecDAX; Nasdaq: MOR) announced today that its licensee Janssen Research & Development, LLC (Janssen), reported top-line results from the phase 3 DISCOVER 1 and 2 studies in a press release issued today. The studies evaluated the efficacy and safety of guselkumab (Tremfya(R)) compared to placebo in adult patients with active moderate to severe psoriatic arthritis (PsA). According to Janssen, both studies met their primary endpoints of American College of Rheumatology 20 percent score improvement (ACR20), and the safety profiles observed for guselkumabin the DISCOVER program were consistent with previous studies of guselkumab and Tremfya(R) current prescribing information.

The DISCOVER program comprises the first-ever phase 3 studies evaluating an IL-23 p19 inhibitor for the treatment of psoriatic arthritis. Janssen announced that data will be presented at upcoming scientific medical meetings and that data from the two DISCOVER studies will serve as the basis of submissions to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and European Medicines Agency seeking approval of guselkumab as a treatment for psoriatic arthritis, which are anticipated for later this year.

Guselkumab is a human anti-IL-23 monoclonal antibody developed by Janssen that was generated utilizing MorphoSys's proprietary HuCAL antibody technology.

Dr. Markus Enzelberger, Chief Scientific Officer of MorphoSys AG, said: "We are very pleased to see these positive topline results from two phase 3 studies of guselkumab in psoriatic arthritis. This disease is very debilitating and severely restricts the mobility of patients. We look forward to the further development of guselkumab as a potential treatment option in this indication."

Guselkumab (tradename Tremfya(R)) has been approved in the U.S., Canada, the European Union, and several other countries for the treatment of plaque psoriasis and in Japan for the treatment of various forms of psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis, and palmoplantar pustulosis. Guselkumab is currently being investigated in clinical studies in several indications, including additional studies in plaque psoriasis, pediatric psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis, Crohn's disease, hidradenitis suppurativa, ulcerative colitis and familial adenomatous polyposis. MorphoSys is eligible to certain milestone payments and receives royalties on net sales of Tremfya(R).

More information about guselkumab clinical studies is available on clinicaltrials.gov.
 

About the DISCOVER program
The DISCOVER program consists of DISCOVER-1 and DISCOVER-2, two randomized, double-blind, multicenter phase 3 studies designed to evaluate efficacy and safety of subcutaneous guselkumab in patients with active PsA compared to placebo. In addition to the primary endpoint of ACR20 response at week 24, multiple secondary endpoints were assessed that included ACR50/70, resolution of soft tissue inflammation (enthesitis and dactylitis), disease activity (DAS-28 CRP), improvement in physical function (HAQ-DI), skin clearance (IGA), and quality of life (SF-36 PCS and MCS). DISCOVER-2 also assessed effect on structural damage (vdH-S) as a key secondary endpoint.
DISCOVER-1 included 381 participants, including participants previously treated with anti-TNF biologics. The study continued through 52 weeks. DISCOVER-2 included 739 bio-naive participants and continued through 100 weeks.
