Date:9/22/2010

R 20 response criteria is defined as greater than or equal to 20% improvement from baseline in both tender and swollen joints, and greater than or equal to 20% improvement in three of five measures: pain, acute phase reactant, physical function, patient and physician global assessment. ACR 50 and ACR 70 assess greater than or equal to 50% improvement and greater than or equal to 70% improvement in those areas respectively. ** DAS 28 is a measure of the activity of Rheumatoid Arthritis assessing 28 joint counts in the body

About Fostamatinib

Fostamatinib (previously referred to as R788), is the first oral syk inhibitor in development as a novel therapeutic approach for RA. It is thought to reversibly block signalling in multiple cell types involved in inflammation and tissue degradation in RA.

In February 2010, AstraZeneca and Rigel Pharmaceuticals announced a worldwide license agreement whereby AstraZeneca will develop and commercialise fostamatinib.

About RA

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a systemic autoimmune inflammatory disease, which causes damage to the joints and other organs, affecting approximately 1 in 100 people. It is a major cause of disability and is also associated with reduced life expectancy, especially if not adequately treated.

About the TASKi2 Study Design

TASKi2 was a 6 month, multi-center, randomized, double-blind, placebo controlled, parallel dose clinical trial involving 457 RA patients in the U.S., Latin America and Europe who had active RA despite treatment with MTX alone. Approximately 1/3 of the patients (n=152) studied received 100mg of fostamatinib orally bid. Another third received 150mg of the study drug qd and the final third were given placebo to be taken orally bid or qd (total placebo n=153). Throughout the study all patients continued to receive their stable dose of MTX.
