Regeneron’s Kevzara (Sarilumab) Gains the US FDA’s Approval to Treat Active Polyarticular Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (PJIA)


The US FDA has granted approval to Kevzara (sarilumab) for treating active polyarticular juvenile idiopathic arthritis patients (≥63kg wt.)
The approval was based on studies assessing the drug’s safety and effectiveness in adults with rheumatoid arthritis and pediatric patients with pJIA. New ARs were not found with the most common ones in pJIA population being nasopharyngitis, neutropenia, upper respiratory tract infection & injection site erythema; neutropenia resulted in permanent discontinuation
Kevzara works by binding and inhibiting IL-6-mediated signaling that leads to joint destruction and other systemic problems in rheumatoid arthritis patients
