Risankizumab therapy was associated with significant and sustained improvement in multiple disease domains from Week 52 through Week 100, compared with placebo. Kristensen et al. investigated the safety, efficacy and tolerability of 100-week risankizumab therapy in PsA patients with previous inadequate response to ≥1 csDMARD, using data from KEEPsAKE 1 trial.

March 2024

This study by Rech, et al. shows that 6-month treatment with abatacept was associated with a decrease in MRI inflammation, clinical symptoms, and risk of RA development in participants at high risk. The effects of the intervention persist through a 1-year drug-free observation phase.

Bimekizumab was well tolerated in patients with PsA and TNFi-IR up to 52 weeks, with a safety profile consistent with that observed in prior studies. This study aimed to assess 52-week safety and efficacy of bimekizumab in patients with active PsA and prior IR/intolerance to TNFi.

May 2023

Results from the 52-week phase 3 EXCEED study showed that secukinumab and adalimumab both display similar efficacy in time to resolution of enthesitis, in patients with PsA, irrespective of baseline enthesitis severity and individual site distribution.

January 2023

This study showed rapid and clinically meaningful improvements with bimekizumab treatment in patients experiencing active PsA and showing an inadequate response or intolerance to TNFα inhibitors. Its chief aim was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of bimekizumab in patients with an inadequate response or intolerance to TNFα inhibitors.

November 2022

Risankizumab (RZB) improves the signs and symptoms of PsA, with efficacy maintained through 52 weeks. Alongside the efficacy data, this analysis of KEEPsAKE 1 also evaluates the safety and tolerability profile of RZB.

August 2022

In this study risankizumab treatment resulted in greater improvements in fatigue and pain than placebo. Prior to this finding the study aimed to evaluate the impact of risankizumab on HRQoL and other PROs among patients with active PsA and inadequate response or intolerance to csDMARD-IR in the KEEPsAKE 1 trial.

Secukinumab improves the burden of heel enthesitis as assessed by patient and physician reported outcomes in patients with active SpA refractory to standard treatment. In coming to this conclusion, the ACHILLES trial aimed to demonstrate the efficacy of secukinumab on Achilles’ tendon enthesitis in SpA patients.

June 2022

In this study Mease, et al. aimed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of deucravacitinib in patients with active PsA. Treatment with the selective TYK2i deucravacitinib was well tolerated and resulted in greater improvements than placebo in ACR-20 as well as Multiplicity-controlled secondary endpoints and other exploratory efficacy measures in patients.

Enthesitis is a hallmark feature of SpA, including PsA and axSpA, and is proposed as the primary lesion in spondyloarthropathies. This study aimed to investigate the imaging characteristics of heel enthesitis in SpA in a post hoc analysis using the HEMRIS in blinded and centrally read MRI data from the ACHILLES trial..
