Safety and Efficacy of Bimekizumab in Patients With Active Ankylosing Spondylitis: Three-Year Results From a Phase IIb Randomized Controlled Trial and Its Open-Label Extension Study
Arthritis Rheumatol. 2022;74:1943–58
In this open-label extension study of BE AGILE, the safety profile of bimekizumab was found to be consistent with previously demonstrated findings, and no new safety signals were identified. The objective was to assess the long-term safety, tolerability, and efficacy of bimekizumab in patients with active AS.
