Paul Emery, ACR 2022: Peresolimab for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis – findings from a phase 2 trial

Published Online: November 21st 2022

Peresolimab, a humanised immunoglobulin G1 monoclonal antibody, was investigated in a phase 2a, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial for the treatment of moderately to severely active rheumatoid arthritis (RA) (NCT04634253). In this touchIMMUNOLOGY interview, we were delighted to speak with Dr. Paul Emery (University of Leeds, Leeds, UK) around the rationale for targeting the programmed cell death-1 pathway in RA, and the methodology, eligibility criteria and findings from the phase 2 trial.
