Formycon announces end of Phase I clinical study for Stelara® (ustekinemab) biosimilar

Apr 25, 2023

Formycon AG announced the successful conclusion of its extended Phase I clinical study comparing the pharmacokinetics of FYB202 and the reference drug Stelara® (ustekinumab).  This follows Formycon’s report in August 2022 that its Phase III studies demonstrated the comparable efficacy of FYB202 and Stelara® in patients with moderate-to-severe psoriasis vulgaris (plaque psoriasis).  Formycon stated FYB202 was bioequivalent to the reference drug Stelara® sourced in the EU as well as in the U.S. for all primary endpoint parameters.

EU and US regulatory submissions are still planned for the third quarter of 2023.  The product will be sold by Fresenius Kabi in key global markets.
