Discussing Rheumatology: November 2023

Join Professor Iain McInnes in this month's Podcast, where he discusses the latest information and data in rheumatology. In this episode, he discusses two papers that look at the incidence of disease. The first paper, the GBD 2021 Other Musculoskeletal Disorders Collaborators systematically analysed the global burden of musculoskeletal disorders, and used these data to predict prevalence up to 2050 and the second paper, Yvette Meissner and her colleagues used the German RABBIT registry to investigate the relationship between MACE risk and JAK inhibitors, TNF inhibitors, and DMARDs.

Bimekizumab in treating bDMARD-naïve PsA & upadacitinib in treating csDMARD and bDMARD IR PsA

The first of the publications relates to the safety and efficacy of bimekizumab in bDMARD-naïve patients with PsA through 52 weeks and the second is a publication exploring the real-world safety and efficacy of upadacitinib in patients with PsA and an inadequate response to csDMARDs or bDMARDs.
