CONSISTENT, FAVOURABLE SAFETY PROFILE
confirmed by 5-year data, with low rates of AEs of special interest,* including severe infections, malignancies and MACE.1

CONVENIENT
– DOSING SCHEDULE

with only 4 injections per year during maintenance and flexible dosing to adapt to patient needs.3
MORE COST EFFECTIVE
than other biologics,4† with
flat pricing across doses.5

*AEs of special interest also included malignancies, NMSC, injection site reactions and drug-related hypersensitivity reactions. †When assessed at Week 28, compared with other targeted treatments that are usually assessed between 12 weeks and 16 weeks (such as brodalumab, guselkumab, ixekizumab, infliximab and secukinumab).4
ILUMETRI® DELIVERS SUSTAINED EFFICACY for nearly 5 years1
The efficacy population included responder patients (≥75% improvement from baseline PASI score) at Week 28 who continuously received the same dose of ILUMETRI® 100 mg (n=329) and were followed-up until Week 244. Multiple imputation for missing data was used as the main efficacy analysis. Observed cases and non-responder imputation were employed as sensitivity analyses. Significantly more ILUMETRI® patients achieved PASI 75 at Week 12 vs. placebo in both studies (reSURFACE-1/2: 64%/61% [100 mg], 62%/66% [200 mg] vs. 6%/6% [placebo], p<0.0001) and vs. etanercept (reSURFACE-2: 61% [100 mg, p=0.001], 66% [200 mg, p<0.0001] vs. 48%). Significantly more ILUMETRI® patients achieved a PGA score of ‘clear’ or ‘minimal’, with ≥2-grade reduction from baseline at Week 12 in both studies vs. placebo (reSURFACE-1/2: 58%/55% [100 mg], 59%/59% [200 mg] vs. 7%/4% [placebo], p<0.0001), ILUMETRI® 200 mg (59%, p=0.0031) and ILUMETRI® 100 mg (55%, p=0.0663) vs. etanercept (48%). Step-down multiplicity strategy used.
ILUMETRI® OFFERS IMPROVED QUALITY OF LIFE with more than 50% of patients (Week 28 responders) reporting that psoriasis no longer affected their lives after just 3 injections (DLQI 0/1 in 52% of n=299 patients)2
Patients receiving ILUMETRI® improved their DLQI score (0/1)* over time3
Adapted from ILUMETRI® Summary of Product Characteristics.
Data shown are based on the full analysis set of randomised subjects receiving ILUMETRI® 100 mg with valid values for baseline and endpoint in reSURFACE 1; missing data have not been imputed.
Data from patients who achieved at least PASI 75 at Week 28 is shown for Week 52.2
*A DLQI score of 0 or 1 indicates no effect of psoriasis on quality of life. The DLQI score is the sum of the 10 individual question scores and ranges from 0 to 30, with lower scores indicating better quality of life.2
ILUMETRI® DEMONSTRATED A CONSISTENT, FAVOURABLE SAFETY PROFILE confirmed by 5-year data, with low rates of AEs of special interest,* including severe infections, malignancies and MACE1,7,8

No increased risk or worsening events of IBD8
No increased risk of malignancies1
No increased risk of MACE1
Low rates of severe infections
