Results showed that after 16 weeks of treatment, bimek= izumab met the co-primary endpoints of at least a 90 percent improvement in= the Psoriasis Area and Severity Index (PASI 90) and Investigator Global As= sessment (IGA) score of clear or almost clear (IGA 0/1).^1 Among key secondary endpoints, bimekizumab was also found to be superior to= ustekinumab in reaching PASI 90 and IGA 0/1 and superior to placebo in tot= al skin clearance (PASI 100 or IGA 0) at Week 16.i The initial assessment i= ndicates that the safety profile of bimekizumab was consistent with the ear= lier BE ABLE Phase 2 studies.^2 The safety and efficacy of bimekizumab has not been established and it is n= ot approved by any regulatory authority worldwide. The full BE VIVID result= s will be presented in due course. =E2=80=9CThese encouraging first results provide strong evidence that bimek= izumab has the potential to raise the bar for achieving skin clearance rate= s for patients. Achieving clear skin is of critical importance in positivel= y impacting the lives of psoriasis patients.

We look forward to shari= ng further findings from the bimekizumab clinical development program in th= e coming months.=E2=80=9D The safety and efficacy of bimekizumab is also being evaluated in psoriatic= arthritis (PsA), ankylosing spondylitis (AS) and non-radiographic axial sp= ondyloarthritis (nr-axSpA).=C2=A0 About BE VIVID BE VIVID is a randomized, 52-week, double-blind, placebo- and active-contro= lled study designed to assess the efficacy and safety of bimekizumab in pat= ients with moderate-to-severe chronic plaque psoriasis. BE VIVID enrolled 5= 70 participants with chronic plaque psoriasis for at least six months prior= to screening and with an affected body surface area of at least 10 percent= and PASI of at least 12.=C2=A0 The co-primary endpoints of the study were PASI 90 response (defined as a p= atient who achieves 90 percent improvement from baseline in the PASI score)= at Week 16, and IGA response (defined as clear or almost clear with at lea= st a 2-category improvement relative to baseline) at Week 16.

About Bimekizumab Bimekizumab is an investigational humanized monoclonal IgG1 antibody that p= otently and selectively neutralizes IL-17A and IL-17F, two key cytokines dr= iving inflammatory processes.^3=C2=A0IL-17A and IL-17F have similar pro-inf= lammatory functions and independently synergize with other inflammatory med= iators to drive chronic inflammation and damage across multiple tissues.^4,= 5=C2=A0=C2=A0 About Psoriasis Psoriasis is a common, chronic inflammatory disease with primary involvemen= t of the skin. The skin condition affects men and women of all ages and eth= nicities. Psoriasis signs and symptoms can vary but may include red patches= of skin covered with silvery scales, dry, cracked skin that may bleed and = thickened, pitted or ridged nails.^6 Psoriasis affects nearly 3 percent of the population, or about 125 million = people worldwide.vi Unmet needs remain in the treatment of psoriasis. A pop= ulation-based survey identified that approximately 30 percent of psoriasis = patients reported that their primary goals of therapy, including keeping sy= mptoms under control, reducing itching, and decreasing flaking were not met= with their current treatment.^6=C2=A0Failure to achieve or retain complete= and lasting skin clearance negatively impacts disease progression and qual= ity of life.^8,9=C2=A0 For further information, UCB: Corporate Communications Laurent Schots=C2=A0 Media Relations, UCB =C2=A0 T+32.2.559.92.64 =C2=A0Laurent.schots@ucb.com=C2=A0 Investor Relations Antje Witte =C2=A0 =C2=A0 =C2=A0 =C2=A0 =C2=A0 Investor Relations, UCB T +32.2.559.94.14 antje.witte@ucb.com Isabelle Ghellynck, =C2=A0Investor Relations, UCB T+32.2.559.9588, isabelle.ghellynck@ucb.com=C2=A0 Brand Communications Andrea Levin Christopher, Immunology Communications, UCB T +1.404.483.7329, andrea.christopher@ucb.com About UCB UCB, Brussels, Belgium (www.ucb.com) is a global biopharmaceutical company = focused on the discovery and development of innovative medicines and soluti= ons to transform the lives of people living with severe diseases of the imm= une system or of the central nervous system.
