New RAPID 1 Post-Hoc Analysis Showed Early Response to Cimzia® (certolizumab pegol) at Week 12 was Predictive of Week 52 Response
Date:11/7/2011

BRUSSELS and CHICAGO, Nov. 7, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- UCB today announced findings from a post-hoc analysis suggesting that disease activity response rates to Cimzia® (certolizumab pegol) plus methotrexate (MTX) as early as Week 12 helped predict the effect on structural joint damage in patients with moderate to severe rheumatoid arthritis (RA) at one year. Comparable responses were found by both RAPID3 (Routine Assessment of Patient Index Data 3) and EULAR (European League Against Rheumatism), suggesting that either response criteria could be used as predictors of structural joint damage in patients with moderate to severe RA. The analysis examined patients treated with certolizumab pegol plus MTX compared to placebo plus MTX. The data were presented at the American College of Rheumatology's 2011 Annual Scientific Meeting in Chicago, IL (November 5-9, 2011).

"This post-hoc analysis is consistent with previous evidence that suggested an opportunity for healthcare professionals to predict clinical outcomes as early as Week 12 when treating rheumatoid arthritis patients with certolizumab pegol," said Edward Keystone, M.D., The Rebecca MacDonald Center for Arthritis, Mount Sinai Hospital, The University of Toronto. "Moreover, the results indicated that if a patient responds to treatment at 12 Weeks, it may predict disease progression at one year."

Both RAPID3 and EULAR response criteria are measures of disease activity in RA. RAPID3 is an index of three patient self-report measures—physical function, pain, and patient global estimate of status—that can be quickly calculated by a healthcare professional. RAPID3 and its components are seen as markers that may alert a healthcare professional to unanticipated patient problems, provide a baseline measure to support a change in treatment, and numerically document improvement or worsening over time to complement clinical impressions. EULAR response criteria classify individual patien
