Safety and Efficacy of Bimekizumab in Patients With Active Psoriatic Arthritis: Three-Year Results From a Phase IIb Randomized Controlled Trial and Its Open-Label Extension Study
Arthritis Rheumatol. 2022 doi: 10.1002/art.42280
This study highlighted that the safety of bimekizumab in patients with PsA over 3 years of treatment was consistent with the previous 48-week results, as well as other recently published studies of IL-17 inhibitors in PsA patients.
Bimekizumab In Patients with Active Psoriatic Arthritis and Previous Inadequate Response or Intolerance to Tumour Necrosis Factor-Α Inhibitors: A Randomised, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled, Phase 3 Trial
Lancet. 2023 doi: 10.1016/S0140-6736(22)02303-0
This study showed rapid and clinically meaningful improvements with bimekizumab treatment in patients experiencing active PsA and showing an inadequate response or intolerance to TNFα inhibitors. Its chief aim was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of bimekizumab in patients with an inadequate response or intolerance to TNFα inhibitors.
Bimekizumab in Patients with Psoriatic Arthritis, Naive To Biologic Treatment: A Randomised, Double-blind, Placebo-controlled, Phase 3 Trial (BE OPTIMAL)
Lancet. 2023 doi: 10.1016/S0140-6736(22)02302-9
This study showed that bimekizumab treatment resulted in clinically meaningful and consistent improvements across multiple measures in bDMARD-naïve patients with active PsA. It aimed to assess the efficacy and safety of bimekizumab in patients with active PsA who were naive to bDMARDs.
Influenza Adverse Events in Patients with Rheumatoid Arthritis, Ulcerative Colitis, or Psoriatic Arthritis in the Tofacitinib Clinical Development Programs
Rheumatol Ther. 2022. Epub ahead of print doi: 10.1007/s40744-022-00507-z
This post-hoc analysis of 31 clinical trials in ulcerative colitis, rheumatoid arthritis and psoriatic arthritis concludes that combined influenza adverse event incidence rates were highest in ulcerative colitis, while in each indication they were generally similar across tofacitinib, placebo, and comparator groups.
Immunotherapy. 2022 doi: 10.2217/imt-2022-0109
Deucravacitinib demonstrates promising results as a TYK2-specific immunotherapy and shows considerable efficacy yet is able to avoid the side effect profile observed with other JAK inhibitors.
Real-world Treatment Patterns and Use of Adjunctive Pain and Anti-inflammatory Medications Among Patients with Psoriatic Arthritis Treated With IL-17A Inhibitors In The United States
J Manag Care Spec Pharm. 2022 doi: 10.18553/jmcp.2022.22144
In this study ixekizumab and secukinumab patients had similar treatment patterns. It was also surmised that the use of adjunctive pain and anti-inflammatory medications were similar between therapies. In coming to this conclusion investigators aimed to compare treatment patterns and use of pain and anti-inflammatory medications between patients with PsA initiating ixekizumab and secukinumab in two cohorts of patients from…(add here where is the population coming from).
Implementation of the OMERACT Psoriatic Arthritis Magnetic Resonance Imaging Scoring System in a Randomized Phase IIb Study of Abatacept in Psoriatic Arthritis
Rheumatology (Oxford) 2022 doi: 10.1093/rheumatology/keac073
In this study abatacept 30/10 mg/kg and 10 mg/kg doses were associated with greater improvements from baseline in MRI detected synovitis and tenosynovitis, respectively, compared with placebo, confirming the clinical outcomes. Indeed, inflammatory components demonstrated the greatest change from baseline.
Risk of Hospitalization for Serious Infection After Initiation of Ustekinumab or Other Biologics in Patients with Psoriasis or Psoriatic Arthritis
Arthritis Care Res (Hoboken) 2022 doi: 10.1002/acr.24630
In this investigation it was concluded that other biologics and apremilast were associated with a 1.4- to 3-times higher risk of hospitalisation for serious infections in PsO/PsA patients when compared to ustekinumab. These findings should be considered in the safety profile of these therapies when selecting appropriate treatment regimens in patients with PsO/PsA.
Efficacy And Safety of Risankizumab for Active Psoriatic Arthritis: 52-Week Results from the Keepsake 1 Study
Rheumatology (Oxford) 2022 doi: 10.1093/rheumatology/keac607
Risankizumab (RZB) improves the signs and symptoms of PsA, with efficacy maintained through 52 weeks. Alongside the efficacy data, this analysis of KEEPsAKE 1 also evaluates the safety and tolerability profile of RZB.
Efficacy and Safety of Risankizumab for Active Psoriatic Arthritis: 52-week Results from the Keepsake 2 Study
Rheumatology (Oxford). 2022 doi: 10.1093/rheumatology/keac605
This study reported the long-term efficacy, safety, and tolerability of RZB through 52 weeks of treatment in KEEPsAKE 2. In doing so it demonstrated long-term, durable efficacy of risankizumab in improving symptom control, physical function and quality of life in patients with active PsA who were csDMARD-IR or Bio-IR.
