FOR BIOLOGIC-NAIVE PATIENTS WITH PSORIATIC ARTHRITIS

Taltz vs Humira: Complete resolution of enthesitis at weeks 24 and 5210

SPIRIT-H2H BIOLOGIC-NAIVE: COMPLETE RESOLUTION OF ENTHESITIS (LEI=0) AT WEEK 24 AMONG PATIENTS WITH LEI>0 AT BASELINE, NRI

Enthesitis data were prespecified but not type-I error-controlled; therefore, results cannot be regarded as statistically significant.

A subset of patients from SPIRIT-H2H with enthesitis (LEI >0) at baseline.

Primary endpoint=simultaneous achievement of ACR50 and PASI 100 at week 24.8

Mean baseline LEI scores were 2.5 for Taltz and 2.7 for Humira.8

All patients had BSA ≥3%; patients with BSA ≥10%, PASI ≥12, and sPGA ≥3 followed the dosing regimen indicated for moderate to severe PsO.

SELECT IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION
HYPERSENSITIVITY

Serious hypersensitivity reactions, including angioedema and urticaria (each ≤0.1%), occurred in the Taltz group in clinical trials. Anaphylaxis, including cases leading to hospitalization, has been reported in post-marketing use with Taltz. If a serious hypersensitivity reaction occurs, discontinue Taltz immediately and initiate appropriate therapy.

SPIRIT-H2H BIOLOGIC-NAIVE: COMPLETE RESOLUTION OF DACTYLITIS LDI-B=0) AT WEEK 24 AMONG PATIENTS WITH LDI-B>0 AT BASELINE, NRI

Dactylitis data were prespecified but not type-I error-controlled; therefore, results cannot be regarded as statistically significant.

A subset of patients from SPIRIT-H2H with dactylitis (LDI-B >0) at baseline.

Primary endpoint=simultaneous achievement of ACR50 and PASI 100 at week 24.8

Mean baseline LDI-B scores were 40 for Taltz and 56 for Humira.8

All patients had BSA ≥3%; patients with BSA ≥10%, PASI ≥12, and sPGA ≥3 followed the dosing regimen indicated for moderate to severe PsO.

INFLAMMATORY BOWEL DISEASE

Patients treated with Taltz may be at an increased risk of inflammatory bowel disease. In clinical trials, Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, including exacerbations, occurred at a greater frequency in the Taltz group than the placebo group. During Taltz treatment, monitor patients for onset or exacerbation of inflammatory bowel disease and if IBD occurs, discontinue Taltz and initiate appropriate medical management.

IMMUNIZATIONS

Prior to initiating Taltz, consider completion of all age-appropriate immunizations according to current immunization guidelines. Avoid use of live vaccines in patients treated with Taltz.

IN BIOLOGIC-NAIVE PATIENTS WITH PSORIATIC ARTHRITIS

Safety profile of Taltz in SPIRIT-H2H is consistent with registration trials; no new safety signals were observed8,13,14

The most frequent injection site reactions were erythema and pain. Most injection site reactions were mild to moderate in severity.14

Certain adverse events, such as MACE, malignancy, and cerebrocardiovascular events, require longer observation periods and larger patient exposure to ascertain risk. Lilly is conducting continued long-term safety studies, including post-marketing studies, to continue to evaluate the safety of Taltz.

*Safety data show all results available at the time of the last patient reaching week 24, including results to week 52.

Patients with uncontrolled ulcerative colitis (UC) or Crohn’s disease were excluded from the studies; however, patients with a personal or family history of UC/Crohn’s were allowed in the study.

Confirmed by adjudication.

ADVERSE REACTIONS

Most common adverse reactions (≥1%) associated with Taltz treatment are injection site reactions, upper respiratory tract infections, nausea, and tinea infections. Overall, the safety profiles observed in adult patients with psoriatic arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, nonradiographic axial spondyloarthritis, and pediatric patients with plaque psoriasis were consistent with the safety profile in adult patients with plaque psoriasis, with the exception of influenza and conjunctivitis in psoriatic arthritis, and conjunctivitis, influenza, and urticaria in pediatric psoriasis.

Indications and Important Safety Information
Indications

Taltz is indicated for adults with active psoriatic arthritis (PsA), for adults with active ankylosing spondylitis (AS), and for adults with active non-radiographic axial spondyloarthritis (nr-axSpA) with objective signs of inflammation. Taltz is also indicated for patients aged 6 years or older with moderate-to-severe plaque psoriasis (PsO) who are candidates for systemic therapy or phototherapy.

Important Safety Information
CONTRAINDICATIONS
Taltz is contraindicated in patients with a previous serious hypersensitivity reaction, such as anaphylaxis, to ixekizumab or to any of the excipients.

WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS
Infections
Taltz may increase the risk of infection. In clinical trials of adult patients with plaque psoriasis, the Taltz group had a higher rate of infections than the placebo group (27% vs 23%). A similar increase in risk of infection was seen in placebo-controlled trials of adult patients with psoriatic arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, non-radiographic axial spondyloarthritis, and pediatric patients with plaque psoriasis. Serious infections have occurred. Instruct patients to seek medical advice if signs or symptoms of clinically important chronic or acute infection occur. If a serious infection develops, discontinue Taltz until the infection resolves.

Pre-Treatment Evaluation for Tuberculosis
Evaluate patients for tuberculosis (TB) infection prior to initiating treatment with Taltz. Do not administer to patients with active TB infection. Initiate treatment of latent TB prior to administering Taltz. Closely monitor patients receiving Taltz for signs and symptoms of active TB during and after treatment.

Hypersensitivity
Serious hypersensitivity reactions, including angioedema and urticaria (each ≤0.1%), occurred in the Taltz group in clinical trials. Anaphylaxis, including cases leading to hospitalization, has been reported in post-marketing use with Taltz. If a serious hypersensitivity reaction occurs, discontinue Taltz immediately and initiate appropriate therapy.

Inflammatory Bowel Disease
Patients treated with Taltz may be at an increased risk of inflammatory bowel disease. In clinical trials, Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, including exacerbations, occurred at a greater frequency in the Taltz group than the placebo group. During Taltz treatment, monitor patients for onset or exacerbations of inflammatory bowel disease and if IBD occurs, discontinue Taltz and initiate appropriate medical management.

Immunizations
Prior to initiating therapy with Taltz, consider completion of all age-appropriate immunizations according to current immunization guidelines. Avoid use of live vaccines in patients treated with Taltz.

ADVERSE REACTIONS
Most common adverse reactions (≥1%) associated with Taltz treatment are injection site reactions, upper respiratory tract infections, nausea, and tinea infections. Overall, the safety profiles observed in adult patients with psoriatic arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, non-radiographic axial spondyloarthritis, and pediatric patients with plaque psoriasis were consistent with the safety profile in adult patients with plaque psoriasis, with the exception of influenza and conjunctivitis in psoriatic arthritis and conjunctivitis, influenza, and urticaria in pediatric psoriasis.
