AstraZeneca Announces Top-Line Results From OSKIRA-1 Phase 3 Study of Fostamatinib in Rheumatoid Arthritis
Date:4/4/2013

rheumatoid arthritis and an alternative to injectable therapies for patients with an inadequate response to conventional Disease Modifying Anti-Rheumatic Drugs (DMARDs), including methotrexate (OSKIRA-1 and OSKIRA-2) and those with an inadequate response to TNF-α antagonists (OSKIRA-3).

About FostamatinibFostamatinib (previously referred to as R788) is the first oral spleen tyrosine kinase (SYK) inhibitor in development for rheumatoid arthritis. In February 2010, AstraZeneca and Rigel Pharmaceuticals announced a worldwide license agreement whereby AstraZeneca would develop and commercialize fostamatinib.

About Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA)Rheumatoid arthritis is a systemic autoimmune disease whereby the immune system attacks the joints, causing pain, swelling to the surrounding tissue and damage to the cartilage and bone. The disease affects approximately one in 100 people worldwide. 

If not adequately treated, RA can destroy cartilage and bone within joints, leading to serious disability and can be associated with reduced life expectancy. Not all RA patients have a satisfactory response to existing therapies because the disease pathology may differ from one individual to another and a considerable unmet need remains.

In the US alone the total annual societal cost of RA is estimated to amount to $39.2 billion, with even greater indirect costs to individuals and society including costs from diminished work capacity, loss of productivity, loss in earnings and loss in tax contributions.
