Malignancy risk on b/tsDMARDs in patients with prior malignancy history

Jun 04, 2022

For autoimmune patients with a history of malignancy, the initiation of biologic or targeted synthetic disease modifying agents (bDMARD/tsDMARDs) may provoke concern. While data for biologic medications and malignancy risk has been largely reassuring, clinical trials have often excluded

No significant difference in malignancy risk in patients with rheumatic disease and a prior history of malignancy, who started bDMARDs or tsDMARDs. Interestingly IL-17i had 0 malignancy events and CD-20i were next lowest. @RheumNow #EULAR2022 ABST#OP0138 https://t.co/Mq3YvOrSY8

Immune Checkpoint Inhibitor Associated Arthritis

May 30, 2022

Immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICIs) have dramatically improved outcomes in numerous cancers but have been hampered by a growing spectrum of immune-related adverse events (irAEs). Rheumatic complaints may be less frequent than other irAEs associated with ICI in cancer patients.
