Yalnız Tocilizumab veya Tocilizumab ve Metotreksat Kombinasyonu ile Tedavi Edilen Romatoid Artritli Hastalarda Remisyona Ulaştıktan Sonra Tocilizumabın Kesilmesi: Prospektif Randomize Kontrollü Çalışmadan Sonuçlar (SURPRISE çalışmasının ikinci yılından)
Ann Rheum Dis 2018; 77:1268–1275 DOI: 10.1093/rheumatology/key121The second-year results from the SURPRISE study show that low disease activity (LDA) can be maintained after discontinuation of tocilizumab with continued methotrexate after remission is achieved. Discontinuation of biologic agents in patients who have achieved remission or low disease activity (LDA) is desirable from a risk–benefit point of view. Compared with TNF inhibitors, little is known regarding TCZ-free remission or LDA, but studies indicate that only a small proportion of patients remai...
Romatoid Artritli Hastalarda Tofasitinib'in Düşük Hastalık Aktivitesi Sağlandıktan Sonra Kesilmesi: Çok Merkezli, Gözlemsel Çalışma
Rheumatology. Doi 10.1093/rheumatology/kex068This study showed that in patients who achieved low disease activity (LDA), it is possible to discontinue tofacitinib without flare in approximately one-third of patients. Patients from the tofacitinib Phase 3 programme and long-term extension study were enroled. Discontinuation was based on physician-patient decision making with informed consent. The primary endpoint was the proportion of patients who remained tofacitinib free at post-treatment Week 52. Of 64 patients treated with tofacitinib w...
Asya kökenli anti-TNF yanıtsız orta-ciddi RA hastalarında Olokizumab tedavisinin güvenlilik ve etkinliği: Randomize Faz II çalışmadan sonuçlar
Modern Rheumatology. 2015 Sep 10:1-9. [Epub ahead of print]This Phase II study assessed the safety and efficacy of olokizumab in Asian patients with moderate-to-severe rheumatoid arthritis, previously exposed to anti-TNF therapy. After 12 weeks of treatment, olokizumab was found to rapidly improve disease activity in patients who had previously failed anti-TNF therapy. There was also a significant decrease in ACR20 and ACR50 responder rates at week 12. The safety findings were consistent with the safety profile expected for this drug class. These findin...
