Upadacitinib vs. Adalimumab vs. PBO in PsA Phase 3 RCT ⬇️MSK symptoms, PsO, function, pain, fatigue, rads progression in UPA *⃣UPA15 non-inferior to ADA for ACR20, UPA30 superior *⃣Similar VTE in all arms @RheumNow #ACR20 Abs#2026 https://t.co/OHzIjXKqAu
Network Meta-Analysis of JAK and TNF Inhib in 19 AS studies (3,654pts) showed best results with TNFi (golimumab and infliximab) but JAKs also appear to be effective option.
SEAM-RA trial Abst#0939 Combo TNF/MTX Rx -> ETN monoRx superior to MTX monoRx in sustaining remisson, simliar to staying on combo Rx. #ACR20 @RheumNow. Benefit of continuing combo: protect HACA Ab and longevity of TNFi https://t.co/Q934naKnBq
Another biosimilar Adalimumab. SB5 switch in RA, PsA & SpA N=354 No diff in effectiveness Some minor flares. Some changed dose unsure why. #ACR2020 @RheumNow @CRASCRRheum abstr#805 https://t.co/2Zb4H2jBXQ
SEAM-RA: SDAI remission greater in pts on ETN alone vs. MTX alone; ⬆ pts in remission w/ combined tx vs. MTX alone. These may guide tx decisions re withdrawal in well-controlled RA @Rheumnow #ACR20 https://t.co/33GhuMuL3I
Which Adalimumab biosimilar to use (if any)? The race is on to have 1st Ada or 2nd reimbursed/preferentially listed in US reimbursement plans & dare I say it mandatory switching like in Europe.
