Relapse of Psoriasis Following Ixekizumab Treatment Discontinuation
For the analyses summarized below, response was defined as a static Physician Global Assessment (sPGA) score of 0 (clear skin) or 1 (minimal) and relapse was defined as a sPGA score of ≥3.1
In 2 phase 3 clinical trials, patients who were originally randomized to ixekizumab and who responded to treatment at week 12 were rerandomized to an additional 48 weeks of ixekizumab 80 mg every 4 weeks or placebo.1
In those week 12 responders to ixekizumab who were rerandomized to treatment withdrawal (ie, placebo), 7% maintained their clinical response at week 60. The median time to relapse was 164 days.1
In responders who were rerandomized to treatment with ixekizumab every 4 weeks, 75% maintained their response at week 60.1
