Recent Events

  • AbbVie announced that its board of directors unanimously selected Robert A. Michael, AbbVie’s current president and chief operating officer, to succeed Richard A. Gonzalez as the company’s chief executive officer (CEO). Mr. Gonzalez, who has served as CEO since AbbVie’s formation in 2013, will retire from the role of CEO and become executive chairman of the board of directors, effective July 1, 2024. Additionally, the board has appointed Mr. Michael as a member of the board of directors effective July 1, 2024.
  • AbbVie announced that it completed its acquisition of ImmunoGen. This transaction added ImmunoGen’s flagship antibody-drug conjugate (ADC), Elahere (mirvetuximab soravtansine-gynx), for folate receptor-alpha (FRα)-positive platinum-resistant ovarian cancer (PROC), to AbbVie’s portfolio. Late-stage development programs for Elahere provide opportunity to expand into additional patient populations. The transaction also included a pipeline of ADCs that further build on AbbVie’s existing oncology pipeline of novel targeted therapies and next-generation immuno-oncology assets, which have the potential to create new treatment possibilities across multiple solid tumors and hematologic malignancies.
  • AbbVie announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) granted full approval for Elahere for the treatment of FRα-positive, platinum-resistant epithelial ovarian, fallopian tube or primary peritoneal adult cancer patients treated with up to three prior therapies. The full approval of Elahere was based on the confirmatory MIRASOL Phase 3 trial in which data showed that Elahere treatment resulted in an overall survival (OS) benefit and reduced the risk of cancer progression by 35%.
  • AbbVie announced that the FDA granted Priority Review of the supplemental Biologics License Application (sBLA) for Epkinly (epcoritamab), for the treatment of adult relapsed or refractory (R/R) follicular lymphoma (FL) after two or more lines of therapy. If approved, Epkinly will be the only subcutaneous bispecific antibody to treat adults with R/R FL after two lines of prior therapy, marking its second indication following FDA and European Medicines Agency (EMA) approval of R/R third-line diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) treatment. The FDA had previously granted this investigational indication Breakthrough Therapy Designation (BTD). The sBLA is supported by data from the Phase 1/2 EPCORE NHL-1 clinical trial. Epkinly is being co-developed by AbbVie and Genmab.
  • AbbVie announced positive top-line results from the Phase 3 SELECT-GCA study, showing Rinvoq (upadacitinib, 15 mg, once daily) in combination with a 26-week steroid taper regimen achieved its primary endpoint of sustained remission from week 12 through week 52 in adults with giant cell arteritis (GCA). In this study, 46 percent of patients receiving Rinvoq in combination with a 26-week steroid taper regimen achieved sustained remission compared to 29 percent of patients receiving placebo in combination with a 52-week steroid taper regimen. Rinvoq’s safety profile in GCA was generally consistent with that in approved indications, and no new safety signals were identified.
  • AbbVie announced positive topline results from the Phase 3b/4 LEVEL UP study, that evaluated the efficacy and safety of Rinvoq (15 mg, once daily starting dose and dose-adjusted based on clinical response) versus Dupixent (dupilumab) in adults and adolescents with moderate to severe atopic dermatitis (AD) who had inadequate response to systemic therapy or when use of those therapies was inadvisable. Rinvoq demonstrated superiority versus Dupixent in the primary endpoint of simultaneous achievement of near complete skin clearance (Eczema Area and Severity Index 90) and no to little itch (Worst Pruritus Numerical Rating Scale of 0 or 1) at Week 16. Rinvoq also showed superiority versus Dupixent for all ranked secondary endpoints, including the rapid onset of achieving near complete skin clearance and no to little itch. The safety profile of Rinvoq was consistent with the profile in previous AD studies with no new safety signals identified during the 16-week period.
  • At the Congress of European Crohn’s and Colitis Organisation (ECCO), AbbVie presented 17 abstracts, including nine oral presentations and eight posters, from a range of studies across its inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) portfolio. Oral presentations included new post-hoc analysis of clinical and endoscopic outcomes from the Phase 3 SEQUENCE trial comparing Skyrizi (risankizumab) versus Stelara (ustekinumab) in patients with moderate to severe Crohn’s disease (CD), results from the Phase 3 COMMAND study of Skyrizi as a maintenance therapy in adult patients with moderately to severely active ulcerative colitis (UC), and long-term safety results from the Phase 3 U-ENDURE trial of Rinvoq in adult patients with moderately to severely active CD. Skyrizi is part of a collaboration between Boehringer Ingelheim and AbbVie, with AbbVie leading development and commercialization globally.
  • At the 2024 American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) Annual Meeting, AbbVie presented 29 abstracts including three late-breaking presentations. The presented data across AbbVie and Allergan Aesthetics’ extensive portfolios reinforce the companies’ ongoing commitment to developing transformative medical dermatology and aesthetic treatments to advance and redefine the standard of care for patients.
  • Allergan Aesthetics announced the FDA approval of Juvederm Voluma XC for injection in the temple region to improve moderate to severe temple hollowing in adults over the age of 21. Juvederm Voluma XC is the first and only hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal filler to receive FDA approval for the improvement of moderate to severe temple hollowing with results lasting up to 13 months with optimal treatment.
  • At the American Academy of Neurology (AAN) Annual Meeting, AbbVie announced an interim analysis of an ongoing 156-week extension study that supports the long-term safety, tolerability and efficacy of Qulipta (atogepant) to prevent chronic and episodic migraine. The overall long-term safety results were consistent with the known safety profile of Qulipta in chronic and episodic migraine, and no new safety signals were identified. These results also support improvements in key efficacy outcomes, including reduction in monthly acute medication use days.
  • AbbVie and Landos Biopharma announced a definitive agreement under which AbbVie will acquire Landos, a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company focused on the development of novel, oral therapeutics for patients with autoimmune diseases. Landos’ lead investigational asset is NX-13, a first-in-class, oral NLRX1 agonist in Phase 2 for the treatment of UC.
  • AbbVie and OSE Immunotherapeutics, a clinical-stage immunotherapy company, announced a strategic partnership to develop OSE-230, a monoclonal antibody designed to resolve chronic and severe inflammation, currently in the pre-clinical development stage.
  • AbbVie and Tentarix Biotherapeutics announced a multi-year collaboration focused on the discovery and development of conditionally-active, multi-specific biologic candidates in oncology and immunology. The collaboration will leverage AbbVie’s therapeutic area expertise and Tentarix’s Tentacles platform.

Full-Year 2024 Outlook

AbbVie is raising its adjusted diluted EPS guidance for the full year 2024 from $10.97 – $11.17 to $11.13 – $11.33, which includes an unfavorable impact of $0.08 per share related to acquired IPR&D and milestones expense incurred during the first quarter 2024. The company’s 2024 adjusted diluted EPS guidance excludes any impact from acquired IPR&D and milestones that may be incurred beyond the first quarter of 2024, as both cannot be reliably forecasted.
