UCB’s Bimekizumab Shows Promising Results in AS Clinical Trial

UCB biopharma’s experimental therapy bimekizumab (CDP-4940, UCB-4940) significantly improved ankylosing spondylitis (AS) symptoms after 12 weeks of treatment in the Phase 2b BE AGILE trial (NCT02963506). Although no cure has been discovered yet for AS, disease symptoms can be lessened with drugs that decrease pain and inflammation.
