Comparative persistence of anti-tumor necrosis factor therapy in ankylosing spondylitis patients: a multicenter international study.

Conclusions. Canadian AS patients were more likely to persist on therapy compared to Brazilian patients, although rates were lower at 2 years in both countries. Socioeconomic disparity in persistence was found in Brazil, but not in Quebec. PMID: 31990224 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSIONS: IgA antibodies against CD74 are not only markers of AS, but are associated with structural damage development in the sacroiliac joints and in the spine. PMID: 32242816 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Baraliakos X, Hermann KA, Xu S, Hsia EC, Braun J Abstract OBJECTIVES: We aimed to assess relationships between single Bath Ankylosing Spondylitis Metrology Index (BASMI) components and corresponding spinal segment magnetic resonance images (MRI) in anti-tumour-necrosis-factor-treated AS patients. METHODS: Using available MRI and BASMI data from the GO-RAISE trial (n=91 patients), MRI scores for active inflammatory (ASspiMRI-a) and chronic structural (ASspiMRI-c) changes in cervical and lumbar spine segments were compared with BASMI cervical (cervical-rotation [CR] angle, tragus-to-wall [TTW] distance) ...

ConclusionAlthough no significant protective effect of TNFi treatment on spinal radiographic progression was seen over the course of 2 years or ≥4 years in patients with axial SpA, our analysis restricted to studies with a low risk of bias showed a protective effect of TNFi after ≥4 years. Therefore, long‐term TNFi exposure might confer beneficial effects on spinal radiographic progression in axial SpA. No difference in radiographic p rogression at 2 years was seen in either the NSAID or secukinumab treatment groups compared to their controls. Future studies should explore the effects of biologic treatment on radio...

AbstractThere are contradictory results in the relevant literature about the relationship between objective determinants of craniocervical posture and temporomandibular disorder (TMD), whereas no study has worked on ankylosing spondylitis (AS) and TMD relationship. We conducted this study to test the predictors of TMD in AS patients and its relationship with craniocervical posture. AS patients aged between 18 and 50  years consecutively admitted to our outpatient clinics were recruited. TMD was diagnosed by ‘Diagnostic Criteria for Temporomandibular Disorders (DC/TMD)’. Spinal mobility was assessed by BASM...

This study was undertaken to investigate the relationship of PPM1A to osteoclast differentiation by generating conditional gene‐knockout (PPM1Afl/fl;LysM ‐Cre) mice and evaluating their bone phenotype.MethodsThe bone phenotypes of LysM ‐Cre mice (n = 6) and PPM1Afl/fl;LysM ‐Cre mice (n = 6) were assessed by micro–computed tomography. Osteoclast differentiation was induced by culturing bone marrow–derived macrophages in the presence of RANKL and macrophage colony‐stimulating factor (M‐CSF), and was evaluated by counting tartrate‐resistant acid phosphatase– positive multinucleated cells. Level...
