Pfizer Inc. (PFE) said results were positive from a Phase 3b/4 study in adult patients with moderately to severely active rheumatoid arthritis.

Patients who achieved low disease activity with Xeljanz extended release 11 mg once daily plus methotrexate after a 24-week open-label run-in period, were randomized to evaluate the efficacy and safety of Xeljanz as monotherapy. The study demonstrated non-inferiority of methotrexate withdrawal with Xeljanz at week 48, Pfizer said.

The study results will be presented during a late-breaking oral session at the Annual European Congress of Rheumatology in Madrid on June 15.
