The effect of ixekizumab on axial manifestations in patients with psoriatic arthritis from two phase III clinical trials: SPIRIT-P1 and SPIRIT-P2
Ther Adv Musculoskelet Dis. 2023;15:1759720X231189005 doi: 10.1177/1759720X231189005
Post-hoc analysis of SPIRIT-P1 and SPIRIT-P2 concludes that ixekizumab (IXE) is effective in improving axial symptoms in patients with active PsA presenting with axial manifestations.
Efficacy of Tofacitinib on Enthesitis in Patients with Active Psoriatic Arthritis: Analysis of Pooled Data from Two Phase 3 Studies
Arthritis Res Ther. 2023 22;25(1):153 doi: 10.1186/s13075-023-03108-5
Post-hoc analysis of two tofacitinib phase three studies concludes that tofacitinib treatment resulted in improvements in enthesitis in patients with PsA, regardless of baseline location or severity.
Differences and Similarities Between the EULAR/ASAS-EULAR and National Recommendations for Treatment of Patients with Psoriatic Arthritis and Axial Spondyloarthritis Across Europe
Lancet Reg Health Eur. 2023;33:100706 doi: 10.1016/j.lanepe.2023.100706
Comparing the alignment of European national recommendations for patients with PsA and axSpA with EULAR and ASAS-EULAR treatment recommendations found that only a minority of national treatment recommendations were completely aligned.
Efficacy and Safety of the TYK2/JAK1 Inhibitor Brepocitinib for Active Psoriatic Arthritis: A Phase IIb Randomized Controlled Trial
Arthritis Rheumatol. 2023;75(8):1370–1380 doi: 10.1002/art.42519
Phase IIb study of brepocitinib in patients with PsA concludes that treatment with brepocitinib 30 mg and 60 mg QD, was superior to placebo at reducing signs and symptoms of PsA and was well-tolerated over 52 weeks.
Post-Marketing Safety Surveillance of Tofacitinib over 9 Years in Patients with Psoriatic Arthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis
Rheumatol Ther. 2023 doi: 10.1007/s40744-023-00576-8 Epub ahead of print
The data gathered in this post-marketing surveillance study aligned with the previously established safety profile of tofacitinib, and reports were found to have consistent safety profiles in the treatment of both patient with PsA and RA. However, the results of this study should be interpreted considering the limitations of post-marketing surveillance studies.
The 2023 Pipeline of Disease-Modifying Antirheumatic Drugs (DMARDs) in Clinical Development for Spondyloarthritis (including psoriatic arthritis): a Systematic Review of Trials
RMD Open. 2023;9(3):e003279 doi 10.1136/rmdopen-2023-003279 https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/37507210/
This systematic review identified DMARDs evaluated for axSpA and PsA, distinguishing between csDMARDs, tsDMARDs, and bDMARDs. The review pinpointed twenty-six distinct targeted therapies currently in clinical development; 18 therapies for axSpA and 15 therapies for PsA.
Upadacitinib in Patients with Psoriatic Arthritis and Inadequate Response to Biologics: 3-year Results from the Open-Label Extension of the Randomised Controlled Phase 3 SELECT-PsA 2 Study
Clin Exp Rheumatol. 2023 doi: 10.55563/clinexprheumatol/8l7bbk. Epub ahead of print
Data from this open-label extension showed the efficacy of upadacitinib observed at 56 weeks was maintained through to 152 weeks in the treatment of patients with PsA. No cumulative adverse effects were observed, and no new safety signals were identified.
Effect of Body Mass Index on Treatment Response of Biologic/ Targeted-Synthetic DMARDs in Patients With Rheumatoid Arthritis, Psoriatic Arthritis or Axial Spondyloarthritis. A Systematic Review
Autoimmunity Reviews 22 (2023) 103357
The study demonstrated that obesity is a factor that could play a role in treatment decision-making in people living with inflammatory arthritis (IA). It appears that efficacy of TNFi is affected by patients’ weight/BMI in all forms of IA, while this is not the case for TCZ and ABA in RA, as well for IL-17 and IL-23 inhibitors in PsA.
Rheumatol Ther. 2023 doi: 10.1007/s40744-023-00548-y Epub ahead of print
Secukinumab reduced disease activity across a range of outcome measures by week 12, with sustained responses through 52 weeks.
