Program Description:

This program reviews the burden of disease experienced by patients across the spectrum of axial spondyloarthritis (axSpA), which includes non-radiographic axial spondyloarthritis (nr-axSpA) and ankylosing spondylitis (AS), as well as clinical data for COSENTYX that support its use as a first-line biologic treatment for both patient populations, focusing on the latest data from the PREVENT study in nr-axSpA and also including 5-year results from the MEASURE 2 trial in AS. The program additionally explores axial symptoms in patients with psoriatic arthritis (PsA) and presents a look at the latest data from MAXIMISE, the first and only dedicated biologic study of axial manifestations in patients with PsA.
