Comparative Effectiveness of First-Line Baricitinib in Patients With Rheumatoid Arthritis in the Australian OPAL Data Set
ACR Open Rheumatol. 2023 doi 10.1002/acr2.11577 Epub ahead of print.
Cicirello, et al. present results showing that baricitinib is comparable in treatment persistence with TNF inhibitors. However, treatment persistence up to 24 months was significantly longer for baricitinib, but the effect size of one month is not clinically meaningful.
Efficacité comparative du guselkumab dans le rhumatisme psoriasique: Mises à jour d'une revue systématique de la littérature et d'une méta-analyse en réseau
Rheumatology (Oxford). 2022 doi: 10.1093/rheumatology/keac500
Guselkumab (GUS) demonstrates better skin efficacy than most other targeted PsA therapies, including upadacitinib. The objective of this NMA update was to expand the network to include all targeted therapies in PsA on arthritis, skin efficacy and safety, and to include data on GUS patients with an IR to TNFinibs.
Real-World Comparative Effectiveness and Safety of Tofacitinib and Baricitinib in Patients With Rheumatoid Arthritis
Arthritis Res Ther. 2021;23(1):197In a real-world setting, tofacitinib and baricitinib have comparable continuing efficacies and safety profiles in patients with RA.It is important to determine the differences and similarities of JAK inhibitors in a real-world setting so that the optimal agent can be administered. However, until now, no published data of a direct comparison among these agents in RA have been available. With this in mind, Iwamoto, et al. compared the efficacy and safety of tofacitinib with those of baricitinib by...
Efficacité Comparative des Inhibiteurs du Facteur de Nécrose Tumorale en Première Ligne Versus les Agents Biologiques Non Inhibiteurs du Facteur de Nécrose Tumorale et les Agents Synthétiques Ciblés Chez les Patients Atteints de Polyarthrite Rhumatoïde
Ann Rheum Dis 2021;80:96–102.RA treatment guidelines recommend a treat-to-target approach guided by disease stage and treatment history, yet the optimal sequence of different treatment modalities has not been established. Data from Corrona – were used to evaluate the comparative effectiveness of TNFi versus non-TNFi bDMARDs and tsDMARDs as first-line treatment following csDMARD failure. Results support RA guidelines recommending individualised care based on clinical judgement and consideration of patient preference.The stud...
Efficacité comparative des agents anti-facteur de nécrose tumorale, agents biologiques avec un mode d'action alternatif et du tofacitinib dans une cohorte observationnelle de patients atteints de polyarthrite rhumatoïde en Suisse
RMD Open 2020;6:e001174 doi:10.1136/rmdopen-2020-001174This nested cohort study found that, in Switzerland, there was a generally limited overall drug maintenance for b/tsDMARD options in RA. Using data from SCQM-RA – a prospective longitudinal registry, overall maintenance (drug survival) was calculated for TNFi, bDMARD-OMA or JAKi in patients with RA.After adjusting for potential confounding factors, there was a higher hazard of drug discontinuation with TNFi compared with tofacitinib; no significant difference was observed between non-TNF bDMARDs...
Treatment of Rheumatoid Arthritis with Anti-Tumor Necrosis Factor or Tocilizumab Therapy as First Biologic in a Global Comparative observational Study
Arthritis Care Res (Hoboken). 2017 Oct;69(10):1484-1494. doi: 10.1002/acr.23303To date, the comparative efficacy of tocilizumab and TNFi for patients with RA has only been investigated in a single head-to-head trial and network meta-analyses. This study, ACT-iON, is the first prospective, large-scale, global, multicentre, comparative effectiveness study comparing initiation of intravenous tocilizumab with initiation of a TNFi in patients with RA as the first-line biologic treatment after inadequate response to csDMARDs. Patients were observed in a real-world, clinical pra...
