  • Eli Lilly And Co (NYSE: LLY) has reported posthoc analyses data from the Phase 3 RA-BEAM study that showed Olumiant 4mg (baricitinib) lowered pain and duration of morning joint stiffness in moderate to severe rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients.

  • Discovered by Incyte Corporation (NASDAQ: INCY) and licensed to Lilly, Olumiant is an oral Janus kinase (JAK) inhibitor approved for treating moderately to severely active RA in adults.

  • Trial data showed that Olumiant also enhanced overall physical function at 12 weeks compared to adalimumab and placebo.

  • The changes in pain relief were not affected by disease activity during treatment, Lilly noted.

  • Furthermore, subjects receiving Olumiant had greater improvements in fatigue versus placebo, and the improvements were comparable to AbbVie Inc's (NYSE: ABBV) Humira after 12 weeks.

  • Price Action: LLY shares are up 0.47% at $199.35 during the market session on the last check Wednesday.
