Discussing PsA: Episode 3

Join Professors Iain McInnes and Phillip Mease as well as Doctors Frank Behrens and Laura Coates as they discuss the latest top research in PsA. In this edition, our Steering Committee members look at three key papers published in August 2022. Our first paper aims to highlight the efficacy of secukinumab on Achilles’ tendon enthesitis in SpA patients by looking at a single tender point out of the six-point LEI. The second of today’s papers evaluates the impact of risankizumab on HRQoL and other PROs among patients with active PsA and inadequate response or intolerance to csDMARD-IR in the KEEPsAKE 1 trial. Finally, our third paper reports the long-term safety, tolerability, and efficacy of up to three years of bimekizumab treatment in PsA patients. Everything discussed is available in a more detailed slide format in the publications section at cytokinesignalling.com.
