Celgene Corp. (CELG) said the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved Otezla 30 mg twice daily for adults with oral ulcers associated with Behcet's Disease.
Behcet's Disease is a rare, chronic, multisystem inflammatory disease that is difficult to treat, Celgene said. Otezla reduced the number and pain of oral ulcers in a 12-week placebo-controlled Phase 3 study.
Otezla is now approved for three indications in the U.S., including the treatment of patients with moderate to severe plaque psoriasis, the company said.
