  • Nearly twice as many patients
    who received ZEPOSIA achieved corticosteroid-free remission at 52 weeks vs. placebo1

Adapted from Sandborn WJ et al. 2021.

Key secondary efficacy endpoints were assessed in a pre-specified hierarchical testing procedure. The ranked secondary endpoints for the maintenance period (52 weeks) were percentages of patients with a clinical response, endoscopic improvement, maintenance of clinical remission, corticosteroid free remission, mucosal healing, and durable remission.1

*Corticosteroid-free remission was defined as clinical remission at 52 weeks without receipt of glucocorticoids for at least 12 weeks.
