Antares Announces Podium Presentation Of Pivotal OTREXUP™ (methotrexate) Data At American College Of Rheumatology Annual Meeting

Antares Pharma, Inc. (NASDAQ: ATRS) today announced that data from a pivotal clinical trial of OTREXUP™ (methotrexate) for subcutaneous injection were selected for live, oral presentation during a clinical treatment strategies sub-session of the 2013 American College of Rheumatology (ACR) Annual Meeting, in San Diego.

The abstract, entitled “Drug exposure limitations of oral methotrexate (MTX) at doses ≥15mg may be overcome by using a subcutaneous MTX auto-injector in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA),” was among a select group of key abstracts awarded the distinction of a live, oral presentation. In addition to the oral presentation, data from two other Antares-supported clinical studies were accepted for presentation at the ACR meeting as scientific posters.

The clinical study data that will be presented live are from a randomized, open-label, three-way crossover study comparing the systemic availability of methotrexate using the OTREXUP™ self-administration device-drug combination compared with methotrexate taken orally.

“We are pleased that the ACR included our pivotal OTREXUP™ data as an oral presentation at the premier rheumatology medical meeting in the United States,” said Paul K. Wotton, Ph.D., President and Chief Executive Officer. “We believe these data represent a significant step forward in addressing an unmet need in the current standard of care and may provide support for extending the use of methotrexate in rheumatoid arthritis patients.”

OTREXUP is a single-dose auto-injector containing a prescription medicine, methotrexate. Methotrexate is used to:
  • treat certain adults with severe, active rheumatoid arthritis (RA), and children with active polyarticular juvenile idiopathic arthritis (pJIA), after treatment with other medicines including non-steroidal anti-inflammatory (NSAIDS) have been used and did not work well.
  • control the symptoms of severe, resistant, disabling psoriasis in adults when other types of treatment have been used and did not work well.

OTREXUP should not be used for the treatment of cancer.
