Galapagos NV continued to roll out its consolidation strategy in the second quarter following the decision, taken with partner Gilead Sciences Inc in late 2020, not to pursue a US marketing authorisation for the rheumatoid arthritis drug Jyseleca. In May, the company announced plans to focus its research efforts on inflammation, fibrosis and kidney disease, while discontinuing research in metabolic diseases and osteoarthritis.
