CONCLUSION: Tofacitinib did not require dose modification or restrictions for age, body weight, sex, race, ethnicity, or baseline disease severity in patients with active PsA based on the magnitude of exposure relative to a reference patient. Dosing adjustments for renal impairment were derived from a separate phase 1 study.

Conclusions: The results suggest that dose reduction can be safely performed in patients in treatment remission on a group level without compromising treatment efficacy. Subcutaneous bDMARDs, including abatacept, adalimumab, and etanercept, were observed to be well suited to customizing dosage. This study highlights the potential for individualized and personalized rheumatic medicine by providing dose reduction to individual patients, while monitoring disease activity.

AbstractObjectivesThe primary objective was to investigate the prevalence of neuropathic-like pain in patients with psoriatic arthritis (PsA). Secondary outcomes were to investigate whether mood, fatigue, pain, disease severity and fibromyalgia are associated with neuropathic-like pain in PsA patients.MethodsPsA patients were assessed for fatigue, mood, pain, disease activity and fibromyalgia using questionnaires. Neuropathic-like pain was assessed by PainDetect.ResultsSixty-four patients with PsA were recruited from the Rheumatology Outpatient Department. Of the 64 patients recruited, 26.6% had ‘likely neuropathic p...

GoodsonAbstractFibromyalgia (FM) is one of the most common conditions that rheumatologists encounter. It is characterised by chronic widespread pain, fatigue, sleep disturbances and impaired cognition. The prevalence of comorbid FM among populations with rheumatoid arthritis (RA), axial spondyloarthritis (axSpA) and psoriatic arthritis (PsA) are considerably higher than among the general population, with pooled prevalence estimates of 18–24% in RA, 14&n...

AbstractIntroduction/objectiveApremilast, PDE4 competitive inhibitor, has been recently introduced in the treatment of adult psoriatic arthritis (PsA) patients, but only preliminary data are available on imaging evaluation. Thus, we evaluated the response to apremilast in PsA patients by ultrasonographic (US) assessment.MethodsThirty-four patients (M/F 7/27; median age 61  years, IQR 15; median disease duration 10 years, IQR 13) treated for polyarticular involvement were longitudinally evaluated. All the patients were assessed at baseline (T0), and after 6 (T1), 12 (T2), and 24 weeks (T3) by DAS28, CDAI, SDA...

Conclusion: Addition of MTX to adalimumab confers further therapeutic benefit in patients with RA, but not in those with PsA, suggesting differences in MTX effects in these two patient populations. NCT01078090, NCT01077258, NCT01111240. PMID: 31311386 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Abstract Psoriasis (PsO) is a chronic inflammatory skin disease with both local and systemic components. PsO-associated arthritis, known as psoriatic arthritis (PsA), develops in approximately 13%-25% of PsO patients. Various factors associated with both PsO and PsA indicate that these conditions are part of a single disease. Identification of novel targets for the development of drugs to treat both PsO and PsA is desirable to provide more patient-friendly treatment regimens. Such targets will likely represent 'common checkpoints' of inflammation, for example key components or transduction cascades of the signalli...
