Biomarkers to predict risk of venous thromboembolism in patients with rheumatoid arthritis receiving tofacitinib or tumour necrosis factor inhibitors
RMD Open. 2022;8(2):e002571 doi: 10.1136/rmdopen-2022-002571
Weitz, et al. analyse 291 protein biomarkers and three genetic markers and do not identify a clear mechanistic explanation for higher rates of venous thromboembolism (VTE) with tofacitinib in the ORAL Surveillance study.
Contribution of a European-Prevalent Variant Near CD83 and an East Asian-Prevalent Variant Near IL17RB to Herpes Zoster Risk in Tofacitinib Treatment: Results of Genome-Wide Association Study Meta-Analyses
Arthritis Rheumatol. 2021;73(7):1155–66Genetic analysis of tofacitinib-treated subjects with RA or PsO identified multiple loci associated with increased herpes zoster (HZ) risk.It is well known that HZ risk is elevated in subjects with RA compared with the general population, and that treatment with JAK inhibitors may result in increased risks compared with TNFi and other bDMARD treatments. To this end, Bing, et al. used genome-wide association studies to identify genetic factors associated with an increased risk/faster onset of HZ ...
