STELARA® Awarded 2011 Prix Galien USA in Best Biotechnology Product Category
Date:9/28/2011

HORSHAM, Pa., Sept. 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Janssen Biotech, Inc. announced today that STELARA® (ustekinumab) has been awarded the prestigious 2011 Prix Galien USA Award in the category of Best Biotechnology Product.  The Prix Galien USA Award recognizes extraordinary efforts in biopharmaceutical and medical technology research and development by honoring biomedical advances impacting both individuals and public health in the past decade.  

Approved in the United States by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in September 2009 for the treatment of adults with moderate to severe plaque psoriasis who are candidates for phototherapy or systemic therapy, STELARA is a human monoclonal antibody that selectively targets two cytokines, interleukin-12 (IL-12) and interleukin-23 (IL-23), naturally occurring proteins that are believed to play a role in the development of psoriasis.  

"It is a tremendous honor to have STELARA recognized by the Prix Galien Committee as the Best Biotechnology Product," said Jay P. Siegel, M.D., Chief Biotechnology Officer and Head, Global Regulatory Affairs, Johnson & Johnson Pharmaceutical Research & Development, L.L.C. (J&JPRD), one of the Janssen pharmaceutical companies.  "This achievement is representative of the drive, dedication and commitment of a global team of scientists spanning discovery, research, development and manufacturing."

"The unique mechanism of action of STELARA and the extensive psoriasis clinical program conducted underpin our continued commitment to innovation and developing additional treatment options in immunology," added Susan Dillon, Ph.D., Global Therapeutic Area Head, Immunology, J&JPRD.    

The Prix Galien Award recognizes the technical, scientific and clinical research skills necessary to develop innovative medicines and devices, and is considered the industry's highest accolade
