Post-Marketing Safety Surveillance of Tofacitinib over 9 Years in Patients with Psoriatic Arthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis
Rheumatol Ther. 2023 doi: 10.1007/s40744-023-00576-8 Epub ahead of print
The data gathered in this post-marketing surveillance study aligned with the previously established safety profile of tofacitinib, and reports were found to have consistent safety profiles in the treatment of both patient with PsA and RA. However, the results of this study should be interpreted considering the limitations of post-marketing surveillance studies.
Upadacitinib in Patients with Psoriatic Arthritis and Inadequate Response to Biologics: 3-year Results from the Open-Label Extension of the Randomised Controlled Phase 3 SELECT-PsA 2 Study
Clin Exp Rheumatol. 2023 doi: 10.55563/clinexprheumatol/8l7bbk. Epub ahead of print
Data from this open-label extension showed the efficacy of upadacitinib observed at 56 weeks was maintained through to 152 weeks in the treatment of patients with PsA. No cumulative adverse effects were observed, and no new safety signals were identified.
