nd cords, is highest in Caucasians, historically those of Northern European descent, with a global prevalence of three to six percent of the Caucasian population (1). Most cases of Dupuytren's contracture occur in patients older than 50 years (5).

The most frequently affected parts of the hand associated with Dupuytren's contracture are the joints called the Metacarpophalangeal Joint, or MP joint, which is the joint closest to the palm of the hand and the Proximal Interphalangeal Joint, or the PIP joint, which is the middle joint in the finger.

XIAFLEX is the only drug approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for treatment of Dupuytren's contracture, which has historically been treated primarily by an open surgical procedure.

This five-year observational study was designed to assess the durability of response following treatment with XIAFLEX, as well as long-term safety and progression of disease in patients from earlier Auxilium studies. In order to qualify for the XIAFLEX long-term extension study, patients must have participated in the phase III XIAFLEX clinical trials (CORD I, CORD II, JOINT I, JOINT II, or pharmacokinetic study) and received at least one injection of XIAFLEX. Recurrence in the long-term extension study was standardized and prospectively defined as (a) a joint contracture that was successfully treated (had previously achieved a reduction in contracture to five degrees or less at the Day 30 evaluation after the last injection of XIAFLEX) and that subsequently increases by at least 20 degrees compared to the reference value with a palpable cord present or, (b) a joint which underwent medical or surgical correction to treat contracture in that joint.
