Ante of austere treatment-emergent adverse contest were agnate for the filgotinib 100mg, 200mg and placebo groups (5.2 percent, 4.1 percent and 3.4 percent, respectively). The admeasurement of patients who discontinued abstraction biologic due to treatment-emergent adverse contest was additionally agnate beyond groups.

“For abounding bodies alive with rheumatoid arthritis, the furnishings of pain, deepening and fatigue can booty a austere assessment in their accustomed lives. We are encouraged by these data, which advance filgotinib can advance affection of rheumatoid arthritis in patients who accept not responded to above-mentioned biologic analysis and who charge new therapies that are safe and effective,” said Dr. Walid Abi-Saab, Chief Medical Officer at Galapagos. “We are committed to developing filgotinib to abode the unmet needs of these patients.”
