One-Year Medication Adherence and Persistence in Rheumatoid Arthritis in Clinical Practice: A Retrospective Analysis of Upadacitinib, Adalimumab, Baricitinib, and Tofacitinib

Adv Ther. 2023 doi 10.1007/s12325-023-02619-6 Epub ahead of print

This study by Bergman, et al. showed that RA patients are significantly more likely to adhere to upadacitinib within the first 12 months of prescription versus adalimumab, baricitinib, and tofacitinib. There was also a significantly lower risk of discontinuation for upadacitinib versus the other treatment prescriptions.

Differential Properties of Janus Kinase Inhibitors in the Treatment of Immune-mediated Inflammatory Diseases

Rheumatology (Oxford) 2023 doi 10.1093/rheumatology/kead448 Epub ahead of print

JAKis differ in structure, which affects their inhibitory concentration for different JAKs.

This review by Taylor, et al. compares the pharmacological profiles of JAKis, including abrocitinib, baricitinib, filgotinib, peficitinib, tofacitinib, and upadacitinib.

Relative Remission and Low Disease Activity Rates of Tofacitinib, Baricitinib, Upadacitinib, and Filgotinib versus Methotrexate in Patients with Disease-Modifying Antirheumatic Drug-Naive Rheumatoid Arthritis

Pharmacology 2023 doi 10.1159/000527186 Epub ahead of print

The results of a Bayesian network meta-analysis by Lee and Song showed that JAK inhibitors were more likely to achieve remission and LDA in DMARD-naive RA patients than MTX. However, there were no significant differences in remission rates nor LDA rates between the JAK inhibitors investigated.

A JAK Inhibitor for Treatment of Rheumatoid Arthritis: The Baricitinib Experience

J. Clin. Med. 2023;12(13):4527 doi 10.3390/jcm12134527

This review by Taylor, et al. reviews the long-term safety and efficacy data for baricitinib. Results from several studies showed that baricitinib has greater efficacy and survival compared to TNF inhibitors, and that the rate of CDAI <10 for baricitinib-treated RA patients increased over the course of seven years. Data also showed that remission rates were higher in real-world evidence than in RCTs.

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.

Baricitinib Improves Bone Properties and Biomechanics in Patients with Rheumatoid Arthritis – Results of the Prospective Interventional BARE BONE Trial

Arthritis Rheumatol. 2023 doi 10.1002/art.42617 Epub ahead of print

The results from Simon, et al. show that baricitinib treatment correlates with improvements in bone stiffness. Further improvements were also observed at the end of Week 52, with an increase in estimated failure load and no measurable progression in bone erosion being reported.

Herpes zoster in Patients with Inflammatory Arthritides or Ulcerative Colitis Treated with Tofacitinib, Baricitinib or Upadacitinib: A Systematic Review of Clinical Trials and Real-world Studies

Overall, this evidence supports that HZ-risk is a “class” effect of JAKi, observing a higher risk compared to other non-biologic/biologic drugs . This study aimed to systematically review the incidence of HZ among RA, PsA, AS and UC patients treated with TOFA, BARI or UPA.
