Share

Celebrating EULAR’s 75thanniversary with focus on a new era of rheumatoid arthritis care

Mechelen, Belgium;25 May 2022, 22.01CET;Galapagos NV (Euronext & Nasdaq: GLPG) will present 11 abstracts at the European League Against Rheumatism (EULAR) congress 2022, 01-04 June, taking place in Copenhagen, Denmark. The broad range of abstracts include trial data analyses supporting the efficacy and safety profile of filgotinib andreal-world clinical data around alignment of prescribing between physicians and rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients.

Galapagos is also hosting a hybrid symposium: Evolving patient care in RA: Can JAK inhibitors meet patient and physician expectations for RA treatment?”, which will include a discussion focused on aligning physician and patient treatment goals, looking at what is meant by ‘comprehensive care’ and how to ensure that people living with RA are part of treatment and care goal setting. A meet-the-expert session, “Patient-centred care in RA: cutting through the jargon” will feature insights and answers to audience questions on putting patients at the heart of their RA care. Topics will be based on the new era in RA care, with the availability of JAK inhibitors along with a growing body of evidence providing a better understanding of the impact of pain and fatigue, as well as physical symptoms.

A number of abstracts will present trial data analyses on filgotinib, a once-daily oral preferential JAK-1 inhibitor, for the treatment of moderate to severe active RA. These include long-term efficacy and safety data, new analyses on the safety and efficacy of filgotinib in RA patients over the age of 75, and the effect of filgotinib on BMI and body weight. Additionally, Galapagos will present preclinical data on selective SIK3 (salt-inducible kinase) inhibition as a novel mode of action for the treatment of RA.

“The presentations capture our broad range of research and commitment to the RA community, demonstrating the importance of patient and clinical insights and highlighting our position as a science-driven company focusing on patient unmet needs,” said Walid Abi-Saab, MD, Chief Medical Officer at Galapagos. “We know that people living with RA continue to face daily challenges and we learn from their real experiences to inform our medicine development.”

About Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune inflammatory disease that primarily causes pain, stiffness and swelling in the joints. RA often follows a painful, progressively debilitating course, depriving patients of the ability to continue their daily lives and leading to physical disability. Despite current treatments, RA continues to pose a substantial burden to people living with the disease, comprised of the daily health issues directly related to their RA, such as pain, and the complications of managing comorbid conditions.1,2,3

About the FINCH 4 LTE study
FINCH 4 is an ongoing phase 3 open-label LTE study of filgotinib 200mg and filgotinib 100mg for rheumatoid arthritis (RA) to evaluate the long-term safety and tolerability of filgotinib in participants who have completed one of the parent studies of filgotinib in RA. Eligible patients completed a prior phase 3 randomised double-blind study of filgotinib lasting 52 weeks (FINCH 1 or 3) or 24 weeks (FINCH 2).

Filgotinib may be used as monotherapy or in combination with methotrexate (MTX). Filgotinib is also approved and marketed as Jyseleca (200mg tablets) in the European Union, Great Britain and Japan for the treatment of adult patients with moderately to severely active UC who have had an inadequate response with, lost response to, or were intolerant to either conventional therapy or a biologic agent.
