AE, adverse event; E, events; MACE, major adverse cardiovascular event; NMSC, nonmelanoma skin cancer; PYs, patient-years; RZB, risankizumab; TEAE, treatment-emergent AE.
aPrimary psoriasis safety pool includes UltIMMa-1,3 UltMMa-2,3 IMMhance,4 and IMMvent,7 and NCT0205448110 studies.
bDue to natural causes (n = 1), accident (n = 1), cardiovascular event (n = 1), cardiac arrest (n = 1), sudden cardiac death (n = 1), cause unknown (n = 2), and COVID-19 infection (n = 1); none related to RZB.
cMACE rate in the LIMMitless study is consistent with the incidence rate of MACE in the Psoriasis Longitudinal Assessment and Registry (PSOLAR; 0.57 E/100PY; 95% CI, 0.50–0.65).11
dMalignancies were adenocarcinoma of colon (n = 1), basal cell carcinoma (n = 10), bladder cancer (n = 1), Bowen’s disease (n = 1), breast cancer (n = 3), colon cancer (n = 1), colorectal adenocarcinoma (n = 2), endometrial cancer (n = 1), gastric cancer (n = 1), invasive breast carcinoma (n = 1), lentigo maligna (n = 1), malignant melanoma in situ (n = 2), metastatic colon cancer (n = 1), metastatic squamous cell carcinoma (n = 1), papillary urothelial carcinoma (n = 1), prostate cancer (n = 2), rectal cancer (n = 1), squamous cell carcinoma (n = 3), squamous cell carcinoma of the skin (n = 3).
eSerious hypersensitivity reactions (all of which were considered unrelated to study drug) were paraphenylenediamine allergy (n = 1; mild, attributed to hair dye application), generalized microbial eczema (n = 1; moderate, attributed to prolonged duration of generalized eczema and lack of response to treatment with hydrocortisone), and Stevens-Johnson syndrome (n = 1; severe, attributed to addition of chlorpromazine).

aEvents with onset after the first dose of risankizumab until 20 weeks after last dose of risankizumab. E/100PY, events per 100 patient years. 
Deaths were reported as not related to treatment. 

Consistent safety profile through to 52 Weeks in the IMMerge trial3,4

No new safety signals were observed3,4

*Defined as AEs occurring with an onset within 20 weeks after the last dose of study drug administration.
AE, adverse event; MACE, major adverse cardiovascular event, NMSC, non-melanoma skin cancer; TEAEs, treatment-emergent adverse events.

 

A similar safety profile to adalimumab5

Summary of treatment-emergent adverse events with SKYRIZI vs. adalimumab in Part A (Weeks 0-16) of the IMMvent phase III clinical trials5

Randomised controlled trial, intention to treat population (Part A).
aInvestigator assessed AE as possibly related to study drug. bThe most frequently reported infectious AE were viral upper respiratory tract infection and upper resporatory tract infarction. cOne patient with acute myocardial infarction on study day 73 (event was not considered to be study grud related by investigator). dOne patient diagnosed with invasive lobular breast carcinoma on study day 63 following routine mammogram (event was not considered to be study drug related by investigator). eOne patient with stage IV gall bladder cancer. fOne patient with cholelithiasis, underwent gall bladder surgery, developed cardiopulmonary arrest and died due to abdominal abscess, sepsis, and gastric perforation (events were not considered to be study drug related by investigator).
AE, adverse event; MACE, major adverse cardiovascular events; NMSC. non-melanoma skin cancer. 

Summary of treatment-emergent adverse events with SKYRIZI vs. adalimumab in Part B (Weeks 16-44) of the IMMvent phase III clinical trial6

Randomised controlled trial. lntention to population (Part B). Patients previously treated with adailmumab. randomised to adallrnumab or SKYRIZI at Week 16;
aInvestigator assessed AE as possibly related to study drug. bThe most frequently reported Infectious AE were viral upper respiratory tract Infection and upper respiratory tract Infection. cOne patient with latent tuberculosis. positive TB test during the study.
AE, adverse event; MACE, major adverse cardiovascular events; NMSC,non-melanoma skin cancer.

Demonstrated safety profile in psoriatic arthritis
through to Week 527

Safety events from KEEPsAKE 1 and KEEPsAKE 2 through to week 527

Adapted from Kristensen LE et al. 2021.

aSafety reported through data cutoff date (19 April 2021), which includes data through week 52. Data are from any RZB 150-mg group that includes all patients who received RZB 150 mg, including those who started on RZB 150 mg at randomization and who switched from placebo to RZB 150 mg after week 24.
b10 of the 27 events were cases of COVID-19. 
cAn 81-year-old male patient randomized to RZB died of urosepsis on day 96, and a 41-year-old male patient randomized to RZB experienced sudden death on day 502.

E, events; MACE, major adverse cardiovascular events; NMSC, non-melanoma skin cancer; PY, patient-years; RZB, risankizumab; TB, tuberculosis; TEAE, treatment-emergent adverse events.
