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.
