Celgene Corporation Analyst Notes 

On March 23, 2014, Celgene Corporation (Celgene) announced that it has released new research findings on OTEZLA® (apremilast) from the ESTEEM 1 and 2 phase III studies in patients with moderate to severe plaque psoriasis at the 72nd Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) in Denver, CO. According to Celgene, in ESTEEM 1 and 2, patients were given OTEZLA 30mg twice daily (BID) or placebo for the first 16 weeks, then followed by a maintenance phase through week 32, in which patients on placebo for 16 weeks were switched to OTEZLA. Additionally, the Company stated that patients initially randomized to OTEZLA 30 mg BID, and those who were PASI 75 (Psoriasis Area and Severity Index) responders at week 32, were re-randomized to either OTEZLA 30mg BID or placebo. Commenting on the news, Jennifer Cather, M.D., Modern Research Associates, Dallas Texas, stated, "Results from the 52-week analysis of the ESTEEM program suggest that early responses seen with OTEZLA treatment in multiple efficacy endpoints of plaque psoriasis, including difficult to treat areas, are durable over time. Together with the observed long-term consistent safety and tolerability profile, these findings are encouraging."
