Interim data from an open-label extension study of bimekizumab, a treatment for plaque psoriasis, showed that a majority of patients who responded to the therapy at Phase 3, continued to benefit from the drug after two years. Bimekizumab is currently under review by the US Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of moderate-to-severe plaque psoriasis, a chronic inflammatory skin disease for which there is no cure. In June, it was given a positive opinion by the European Medicines Agency.
