Baricitinib: Incidence of Eczema Herpeticum in the Rheumatoid Arthritis Clinical Development Program

In the rheumatoid arthritis clinical development program, 1 patient reported a treatment-emergent adverse event of eczema herpeticum.


Baricitinib Prescribing Information

Baricitinib is associated with an increased rate of infections such as upper respiratory tract infections. Use in caution in patients with clinically important chronic or active infection.1

If infection develops

  • monitor carefully
  • if patient is not responding to standard treatment interrupt BARI therapy, and
  • do not resume BARI until infection is resolved.1

Viral reactivation, including cases of herpes virus reactivation (eg, herpes zoster), were reported in clinical studies with BARI. If a patient develops herpes zoster, BARI treatment should be interrupted until the episode resolves.1

Incidence of Eczema Herpeticum

Treatment-Emergent Adverse Events

A TEAE is an adverse event that either occurred or worsened in severity after the first dose of study treatment and did not necessarily have a causal relationship to study treatment.1

7-Study Placebo-Controlled Dataset

Dataset Description

The 7-study pooled dataset included patients with RA randomized to BARI 4 mg (N=1142, PYE=471.8) or placebo (N=1215, PYE=450.8) from 3 phase 2 studies and 4 phase 3 studies (RA-BEAM, RA-BUILD, RA-BEACON and RA-BALANCE). Patients in the placebo group could have been taking background MTX or other conventional DMARDs. Evaluation time periods included through

  • the 12-week placebo-controlled period in phase 2 studies
  • 16 weeks of assigned treatment before any opportunity for rescue therapy in phase 3 studies, and
  • 24 weeks of assigned treatment or until rescue in phase 3 studies.2

Data from BARI 2 mg (N=479, PYE=185.8) is derived from 4 of these studies in which both BARI 2 mg and BARI 4 mg were options during randomization (2 phase 2 studies as well as RA-BUILD and RA-BEACON).2

Incidence of Eczema Herpeticum

In this safety analysis, through 24 weeks of treatment, the TEAE of

  • eczema herpeticum was reported in
    • 1 (0.1%) patients in the BARI 4 mg group
    • 0 (0%) patients in the BARI 2 mg group, and
    • 0 (0%) patients in the placebo group.1

All Baricitinib Rheumatoid Arthritis Dataset

Dataset Description

The All BARI RA analysis set included 3770 patients with RA who received BARI at a variety of doses from 1 phase 1, 3 phase 2, and 5 phase 3 studies (RA-BEGIN, RA-BEAM, RA-BUILD, RA-BEACON, RA-BALANCE). Data includes a long-term extension study (RA-BEYOND) with

  • 13,148 PYE,
  • median exposure of 4.2 years,
  • maximum exposure of 8.4 years, and
  • data through 01 September 2019.3,4

Incidence of Eczema Herpeticum

In the All BARI RA analysis set through 01 September 2019, a TEAE of

  • eczema herpectium was reported in 1 (0%, EAIR=0.0) patient.1

The TEAE of eczema herpectium

  • was not reported as a serious adverse event
  • did not result in temporary interruption of BARI, and
  • did not result in permanent discontinuation of BARI.1
