Guselkumab is a fully human anti-IL-23 monoclonal antibody discovered by Janssen utilizing the HuCAL antibody library technology licensed from MorphoSys. According to a press release issued by Janssen today, a substantially higher percentage of patients receiving guselkumab achieved at least a 20 percent improvement in signs and symptoms of the disease (ACR 20) at week 24, the study's primary endpoint, compared with patients receiving placebo. In addition, according to Janssen's press release, data from the trial also showed statistically significant improvements in all secondary endpoints including physical function, psoriatic skin lesions and other health related outcomes in patients treated with guselkumab compared with patients receiving placebo. Janssen will present the detailed data, the corresponding abstract of which can be seen here, in a late breaking session today, November 15, 2016, from 4:30pm-6pm (EST) (10:30pm-12:00am CET) at the Annual Meeting of the American College of Rheumatology (ACR/ARHP) in Washington, DC/USA. The title of the abstract submitted by Janssen is: "Efficacy and Safety Results of Guselkumab, an Anti-IL23 Monoclonal Antibody, in Patients with Active Psoriatic Arthritis over 24 Weeks: A Phase 2a, Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Study." "After Janssen already reported positive data for guselkumab from a phase 3 study in moderate to severe plaque psoriasis in October 2016, we are pleased that positive clinical phase 2a results with guselkumab have now been reported also in the treatment of active psoriatic arthritis", said Dr. Marlies Sproll, Chief Scientific Officer of MorphoSys AG. Further detailed information about the clinical study results can be found in a press release issued by Janssen today.

Martinsried / Munich, Germany, Nov. 28, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MorphoSys AG (FSE: MOR; Prime Standard Segment, TecDAX; OTC: MPSYY) announced today that its licensee Janssen Research & Development, LLC (Janssen) through one of its affiliates, has submitted a Marketing Authorisation Application (MAA) to the European Medicines Agency (EMA) seeking approval of guselkumab for the treatment of adults living with moderate to severe plaque psoriasis. Guselkumab is a fully human anti-IL-23 monoclonal antibody discovered by Janssen utilizing the HuCAL antibody library technology licensed from MorphoSys. "The submission for marketing authorization of guselkumab with the EMA by our licensee comes shortly after its filing in the U.S. and is another important step towards making this therapy available to patients with moderate to severe plaque psoriasis," said Dr. Marlies Sproll, Chief Scientific Officer of MorphoSys AG. "If approved, guselkumab could become the first marketed antibody based on MorphoSys's proprietary antibody technology." According to a press release issued by Janssen, data from four studies evaluating the efficacy and safety of guselkumab when administered by subcutaneous injection in the treatment of adults living with moderate to severe plaque psoriasis served as the basis for the submission: the VOYAGE 1, VOYAGE 2 and NAVIGATE phase 3 studies, and the X-PLORE phase 2 study. Further information can be found in the press release issued by Janssen on November 25, 2016 and on www.janssen.com.

Lanthio Pharma is focused on the protective arm of the Renin-Angiotensin System (RAS). Lanthio Pharma has currently two programs targeting the two key receptors in this pathway. The lead product is MOR107 (formerly LP2-3), a selective AT2 receptor agonist. MOR107 is currently investigated in a "first-in-human" clinical study in healthy volunteers. MorphoSys developed HuCAL, the most successful antibody library technology in the pharmaceutical industry. By successfully applying this and other patented technologies, MorphoSys has become a leader in the field of therapeutic antibodies, one of the fastest-growing drug classes in human healthcare. Together with its pharmaceutical partners, MorphoSys has built a therapeutic pipeline of more than 100 human antibody drug candidates for the treatment of cancer, rheumatoid arthritis, and Alzheimer's disease, to name just a few. With its ongoing commitment to new antibody technology and drug development, MorphoSys is focused on making the healthcare products of tomorrow. MorphoSys is listed on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange under the symbol MOR. For regular updates about MorphoSys, visit http://www.morphosys.com.
