To date there are no approved effective therapies for the treatment of cryopyrin-associated periodic syndromes (CAPS) including Familial Cold Autoinflammatory Syndrome (FCAS), Muckle-Wells Syndrome (MWS), or Neonatal Onset Multisystem Inflammatory Disease (NOMID) in Japan.
The study will assess the efficacy and safety of canakinumab in Japanese patients with cryopyrin-associated periodic syndromes (CAPS). In previous and currently ongoing CAPS studies (CACZ885A2102, CACZ885D2201, CACZ885D2304, CACZ885D2306), it has been observed that treatment with canakinumab in patients with CAPS contributed to ensure absence of relapse, to improve signs and symptoms and to prevent secondary disease complications. However, no Japanese patients have been included in those studies. This study will allow access for Japanese patients to a new potentially efficacious treatment for CAPS patients with a convenient dosing regimen.

A group of rare autosomal dominant diseases, commonly characterized by atypical URTICARIA (hives) with systemic symptoms that develop into end-organ damage. The atypical hives do not involve T-cell or autoantibody. Cryopyrin-associated periodic syndrome includes three previously distinct disorders: Familial cold autoinflammatory syndrome; Muckle-Wells Syndrome; and CINCA Syndrome, that are now considered to represent a disease continuum, all caused by NLRP3 protein mutations.
Conditions resulting from abnormalities in the arteries branching from the ASCENDING AORTA, the curved portion of the aorta. These syndromes are results of occlusion or abnormal blood flow to the head-neck or arm region leading to neurological defects and weakness in an arm. These syndromes are associated with vascular malformations; ATHEROSCLEROSIS; TRAUMA; and blood clots.
