Suboptimal EHR Reporting of Clinical Measures in Patients with RA Receiving a Biologic or Targeted Synthetic DMARD
This retrospective analysis of the Optum One electronic health record (EHR) databases from various Integrated Delivery Networks (IDNs) and large group practices across the United States was conducted to examine the EHR reporting rates of several clinical measures among patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) who received a biologic or a targeted synthetic disease-modifying antirheumatic drug (tsDMARD).
This study explored the effects of sarilumab, an anti–interleukin-6Rα human monoclonal antibody, or placebo in combination with disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs) on fasting glucose and glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c) in diabetic and nondiabetic patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA).
This study assessed the comparative effectiveness of the Janus kinase 1/2 inhibitors, tofacitinib and baricitinib, in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) using a network meta-analysis and Cochrane systematic review of randomized controlled trials from 7 electronic databases and 2 trial registries.
A post hoc analysis of the head-to-head, randomized Abatacept versus Adalimumab Comparison in Biologic-Naïve RA Subjects with Background Methotrexate (AMPLE) trial demonstrated that subcutaneous (SC) abatacept treatment showed improved efficacy versus SC adalimumab in patients with seropositive, erosive early rheumatoid arthritis (RA).
Sustained Response in TARGET Study of Sarilumab + csDMARDs versus Placebo in RA Patients with Inadequate Response to TNF Inhibitors
The phase 3 TARGET study demonstrated that sarilumab (150 or 200 mg subcutaneously every 2 weeks [q2w]) plus conventional synthetic disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (csDMARDs) achieved clinical responses in terms of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) signs and symptoms and physical function compared with placebo in adults with active, moderate-to-severe RA who were intolerant of, or showed inadequate response to, tumor necrosis factor (TNF) inhibitors.
Highly Sensitive Cardiac Troponin I Levels in Peripheral Blood Predict CV Events in Patients with RA
The current study examines whether high cTnI also predicts incident long-term cardiovascular (CV) events and optimizes CV risk stratification in the Prospective Evaluation of Lateral Coronary Atherosclerosis in RA (PROTECT-RA) trial after 5 years of follow-up.
Long-Term Efficacy and Safety Results of SIRROUND-D Trial of Sirukumab in Patients with Active RA Despite DMARD Treatment
The phase 3 SIRROUND-D trial demonstrated that sirukumab, a human monoclonal antibody that selectively binds to the interleukin-6 cytokine with high affinity, resulted in significant reduction in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) signs and symptoms, and inhibited radiographic progression at week 52 compared with placebo in patients with active RA despite disease-modifying antirheumatic drug (DMARD) treatment.
Sarilumab + csDMARDs Effective Regardless of Baseline Disease Activity in RA Patients with Inadequate Response to TNF Inhibitors
Sarilumab, a human monoclonal antibody that inhibits interleukin (IL)-6–mediated signaling by blocking IL-6 receptor alpha, is currently approved for the treatment of moderately to severely active rheumatoid arthritis (RA).
