Additional HUMIRA data to be presented at WCD include poster presentations on moderate to severe plaque psoriasis, including a five-year interim analysis from a 10-year post-marketing surveillance patient registry (ESPRIT) as well as a subgroup analysis evaluating efficacy of HUMIRA across body weight and body mass index in Chinese patients. Investigational studies of HUMIRA for the treatment of moderate to severe Hidradenitis Suppurtativa (HS) will also be presented. An oral presentation will report the impact of HUMIRA on overall pain and duration of pain response in patients with HS. Additionally, featured posters will highlight HUMIRA pharmacokinetics and an integrated analysis from the HS Phase 3 clinical trials.
