Abbott receives positive opinion from CHMP of the EMA about HUMIRA ® in ulcerative colitis

the positive opinion is based on two phase III clinical studies confirmatory data.

Abbott Park, ill., February 2012. Abbott has announced on Monday that the Committee for medicinal products for human use (CHMP) has issued a positive opinion about HUMIRA ® (adalimumab) in adults with active colitis ulcerative (CU) of moderate to severe that they have failed, cannot tolerate or have medical contraindications to conventional treatments. Based on the positive evaluation of the CHMP, a final decision by the European Commission is expected in the coming weeks. With the issuance of this final decision, HUMIRA will be the first and only biological treatment self-injectable available for patients with moderate to severe CU.

The CU is a chronic intestinal inflammatory disease that produces an inflammation of the colon and can cause life-threatening complications. Currently, only final cure is known for the CU is the surgical removal of the colon. It estimates that the CU affects up to 1.2 million people in the European Union and that approximately 25% of patients with UC will be submitted to some kind of surgery to treat the symptoms throughout their lives.

“A diagnosis of ulcerative colitis may be a tremendous blow: can alter the life of the patient and cause pain, bleeding, and hospitalization”, explained John Leonard, M.D., Senior Vice President of the Pharmaceuticals Research and Development of Abbott. “The positive assessment of today is a step forward to HUMIRA disposition of patients with CU in the European Union and underlines our long-term commitment to patients with inflammatory bowel disease.”

The positive opinion of HUMIRA for the indication in the CU is based on two phase III clinical trials that evaluated with HUMIRA clinical remission in adult patients with moderate to severe CU. HUMIRA is indicated for the treatment of moderate to severe active Ulcerative colitis in adult patients with an inadequate response to conventional treatment, such as corticosteroids and 6-Mercaptopurine (6-MP) or azathioprine (AZA), or they do not tolerate or have medical contraindications to these treatments.
