Assessment of Depression and Suicidality

In the BARI RA clinical trial program, the Quick Inventory of Depressive Symptomatology Self-Rated (QIDS-SR16) instrument was used to assess the presence and severity of depressive symptoms, including suicidal ideation.1

Safety Analyses Results

6-Study Placebo Controlled BARI 4 mg Dataset

The 6 study dataset included patients with RA who were randomized to BARI 4 mg (N=997) or placebo (N=1070) from 3 phase 2 studies and 3 phase 3 studies through 24 weeks of assigned treatment or until rescue.1

In this analysis, compared to placebo, BARI 4 mg

  • had a significantly greater improvement in the QIDS-SR16 total score at week 12 (least squares mean change p<.05), and

  • was not significantly different in the proportion of patients with worsening in QIDS-SR16 from baseline through week 24, in both

    • total score, BARI 4mg 15.7% vs placebo 18.2%, and

    • suicidal ideation score, BARI 4mg 5.4% vs placebo 4.8%.1

4-Study BARI 4 mg and BARI 2 mg Dataset

Through 24 weeks, in a safety analysis dataset that included BARI 2 mg (n=455), BARI 4 mg (n=455) and placebo (n=502) treatment groups, there was no statistically significant difference in the proportion of patients worsening in QIDS-SR16 total score between

  • BARI 2 mg and BARI 4 mg, and

  • BARI 2 mg and placebo.1

All BARI RA Dataset

The All BARI RA integrated safety dataset included 3492 patients who received BARI at a variety of doses for a total of 7860 patient-years of exposure from 1 phase 1, 3 phase 2 and 5 phase 3 studies. The analysis covered all exposure time points including after rescue or changes in study treatment through 01 April 2017.1

In this analysis, there were

  • 4 (0.1%) events of suicidal ideation

  • 1 (<0.1%) suicide attempt in a patient with prior depression, and

  • no completed suicides.1
