Novartis psoriasis drug bests Enbrel in trial

  • Novartis' (NVS +0.1%) IL-17A inhibitor secukinumab cleared skin faster and for longer than Enbrel (AMGN -0.9%) in a Phase 3 plaque psoriasis study.
  • FIXTURE met all primary and secondary endpoints.
  • Here's NVS' head of pharmaceuticals with the no-frills take: "These exciting data suggest that with secukinumab, we have the potential to help more patients achieve clear skin, which is the ultimate treatment goal."
  • Expect regulatory submissions later this year in both the U.S. and Europe. (PR)
