A phase 2/3 clinical trial is now recruiting patients over the age of 18 with active ankylosing spondylitis (AS) to participate in a study evaluating the safety and efficacy of Upadacitinib (ABT- 494) - a JAK inhibitor medication taken orally.
The purpose of the trail, titled, “A Study Evaluating the Safety and Efficacy of Upadacitinib in Subjects With Active Ankylosing Spondylitis” is to investigate the effectiveness, impact and performance of Upadacitinib by comparing the perceived symptomatic improvements in pain, global assessment, function, and inflammation experienced with Upadacitinib versus a placebo (a mock medication with no therapeutic effects.)
