Bristol Myers' Zeposia Wins European Approval For Ulcerative Colitis

The European Commission has approved Bristol Myers Squibb & Co’s (NYSE: BMY) Zeposia (ozanimod) for ulcerative colitis (UC).

  • The approval comes for adult patients with moderately to severely active UC who have had an inadequate response, lost response, or were intolerant to either conventional therapy or a biologic agent. 
  • Zeposia, an oral medication taken once daily, is a sphingosine 1-phosphate (S1P) receptor modulator that binds with high affinity selectively to S1P subtypes 1 (S1P1) and 5 (S1P5). 
  • The approval was based on data from the True North Phase 3 trial.
  • During induction at Week 10 (Zeposia N=429 versus placebo N=216), the trial met its primary endpoint of clinical remission (18% versus 6%) 
  • During maintenance at Week 52 (Zeposia N=230 versus placebo N=227), the trial met its primary endpoint of clinical remission (37% versus 19%).
  • In the induction and maintenance phases of the True North trial, the overall safety profile was consistent with the known safety profile for Zeposia.
