Recent Events

  • AbbVie announced that it has submitted an application for a new indication to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for Rinvoq (upadacitinib), a selective and reversible JAK inhibitor, for the treatment of adult patients with active ankylosing spondylitis (AS). AbbVie also submitted an application to the European Medicines Agency (EMA) for Rinvoq for the treatment of adult patients with active AS who have responded inadequately to conventional therapy. The applications are supported by data from SELECT-AXIS 1, a Phase 2/3 study in which Rinvoq demonstrated significant improvements in signs and symptoms in patients with active AS. In the study, twice as many patients receiving Rinvoq (52 percent) met the primary endpoint of Assessment of SpondyloArthritis International Society (ASAS) 40 response versus placebo (26 percent) at week 14. The safety profile of Rinvoq in AS was consistent with previously reported studies across therapeutic areas, including rheumatoid arthritis (RA), atopic dermatitis (AD) and psoriatic arthritis (PsA), with no new significant safety risks detected.
  • AbbVie announced that it submitted applications to the FDA and EMA seeking approval for Rinvoq for the treatment of adults (15 mg and 30 mg, once daily) and adolescents (15 mg, once daily) with moderate to severe AD. The applications are supported by data from three pivotal Phase 3 studies. In all three studies, Rinvoq met the co-primary and all secondary endpoints, demonstrating significant improvement in skin clearance and reduction in itch in adults and adolescents with moderate to severe AD compared to placebo. No new safety risks of Rinvoq were observed in these studies compared to the safety profile observed in patients with RA, PsA or AS receiving Rinvoq.
  • AbbVie announced the FDA full approval of Venclexta (venetoclax) in combination with azacitidine, or decitabine, or low-dose cytarabine (LDAC) for the treatment of newly-diagnosed acute myeloid leukemia (AML) in adults who are age 75 years or older, or who have comorbidities that preclude the use of intensive induction chemotherapy. The FDA had previously granted accelerated approval to Venclexta for this indication in 2018. The approval is supported by data from a series of trials including two Phase 3 trials – VIALE-A and VIALE-C. The VIALE-A trial showed that significantly more patients treated with Venclexta in combination with azacitidine achieved complete remission and lived longer versus patients treated with azacitidine alone. Additionally, The National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) guidelines recommend the Venclexta and azacitidine combination as a Category 1 Preferred AML treatment regimen for patients ineligible for intensive chemotherapy. Venetoclax is being developed by AbbVie and Roche and is jointly commercialized by AbbVie and Genentech, a member of the Roche Group, in the U.S. and by AbbVie outside of the U.S.
  • AbbVie and I-Mab signed a broad, global collaboration agreement for the development and commercialization of lemzoparlimab, an innovative anti-CD47 monoclonal antibody internally discovered and developed by I-Mab for the treatment of multiple cancers. The collaboration provides AbbVie with an exclusive global license, excluding greater China , to develop and commercialize lemzoparlimab and both companies will have the potential to expand the collaboration to additional transformative therapies. Under the terms of the agreement, AbbVie will pay I-Mab $180 million in an upfront payment to exclusively license lemzoparlimab, along with $20 million in a milestone payment based on Phase 1 lemzoparlimab trial results. I-Mab will be eligible to receive up to an additional $1.74 billion in success-based milestone payments.
  • At the 2020 Virtual Migraine Trust International Symposium (MTIS) AbbVie presented 15 abstracts evaluating the safety, efficacy, and impact on patients and the healthcare system of AbbVie’s migraine treatment and prevention portfolio. Presentations included new data from the Phase 3 ADVANCE trial evaluating investigational medicine atogepant for the preventive treatment of migraine; real-world evidence assessing safety, tolerability, and potential benefits of treatment with Botox (onabotulinumtoxinA) in combination with calcitonin gene–related peptide (CGRP) monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) for chronic migraine prevention; and Phase 3 data measuring the efficacy and safety of Ubrelvy (ubrogepant) for the acute treatment of migraine with mild pain.
  • At the 2020 International Congress of Parkinson’s Disease and Movement Disorders AbbVie presented 18 abstracts that highlighted new and updated data evaluating AbbVie’s neuroscience portfolio and pipeline. Presentations included final data from the Phase 3 12-week DYSCOVER study, the first randomized trial of Duodopa (levodopa/carbidopa intestinal gel) (LCIG) on the duration and severity of dyskinesia in patients with advanced Parkinson’s disease (PD). Overall, the results of this pivotal study demonstrated clinically meaningful benefit with LCIG treatment in reducing dyskinesia compared to optimized medical treatment in patients with advanced PD.
  • AbbVie announced that the FDA granted Orphan Drug and Fast Track designations for elezanumab (ABT-555), an investigational treatment for patients following spinal cord injury. Elezanumab is currently in phase 2 studies for the treatment of spinal cord injuries, multiple sclerosis and acute ischemic stroke.
  • Allergan Aesthetics presented 4 abstracts at the annual American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS) virtual meeting. Presentations included data on patient satisfaction following chin augmentation with hyaluronic acid fillers as well as patient satisfaction and the efficacy of treatment of upper facial lines with Botox.
  • Allergan Aesthetics entered into an agreement with Luminera, a privately held aesthetics company based in Israel , to acquire Luminera’s full dermal filler portfolio and R&D pipeline further enhancing Allergan Aesthetics’ leading dermal filler portfolio. Luminera’s key value driver for the future is HArmonyCa, an innovative dermal filler intended for facial soft tissue augmentation comprised of a combination of cross-linked hyaluronic acid (HA) with embedded calcium hydroxyapatite (CaHA) microspheres that is highly differentiated in the dermal filler category. HArmonyCa is currently commercially available in Israel and Brazil and Allergan Aesthetics will continue to develop this product for its International and U.S. markets.
  • Allergan Aesthetics and Skinbetter Science announced the launch of a new long-term, educational initiative – DREAM: Driving Racial Equity in Aesthetic Medicine. The DREAM Initiative is committed to furthering the principles of racial and ethnic diversity, inclusion, respect and understanding in the fields of dermatology and plastic surgery.
  • AbbVie announced positive top-line results from the Phase 3 GEMINI 1 and GEMINI 2 trials evaluating AGN-190584, an ophthalmic solution of pilocarpine 1.25%, for the treatment of symptoms associated with presbyopia. In both studies, AGN-190584 met the primary endpoint, demonstrating a statistically significant improvement in near vision. The majority of secondary endpoints were also met in both Phase 3 studies. Additional details from the GEMINI 1 and GEMINI 2 studies will be presented at future medical meetings and will serve as the basis for a New Drug Application (NDA) submission to the FDA in the first half of 2021.
  • AbbVie and Harvard University announced a collaborative research alliance, launching a multi-pronged effort at Harvard Medical School to study and develop novel therapies against emergent viral infections, with a focus on those caused by coronaviruses and by viruses that lead to hemorrhagic fever. AbbVie will provide $30 million over three years and additional in-kind support leveraging AbbVie’s scientists, expertise and facilities to advance collaborative research and early-stage development efforts across five program areas that address a variety of therapeutic modalities including immunity and immunopathology, host targeting for antiviral therapies, antibody therapeutics, small molecules and translational development.
