Deucravacitinib improved physical and social functioning, mental health, fatigue, and pain in a
Phase 2 trial in patients with active PsA. Here, investigators aimed to report the impact of deucravacitinib in a Phase 2 study in patients with active PsA from a patient perspective.

Significant improvements in overall disease activity, enthesitis and dactylitis, and skin psoriasis were observed by Week 8 and maintained or improved through Week 100 in both guselkumab treatment groups. Coates et al conducted a post-hoc analysis of the Phase 3 DISCOVER-2 trial to investigate the long-term (100-week) efficacy of guselkumab across GRAPPA-identified PsA domains.

The 2023 EULAR recommendations provided an updated consensus on the pharmacological management of PsA with a new overarching principle and recommendation for 2023. Recent MOA safety data emphasised the importance of patient-specific benefit-risk profiling in JAKi therapy, and extra-musculoskeletal (MSK) manifestations related to PsA should be considered during drug selection.

March 2024

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.

February 2024

This study reports that the PsAID-12 total score and individual PsAID items capturing disease concepts important to patients with PsA demonstrated robust psychometric properties.

October 2023

Data from this phase 3 RCT demonstrated that the efficacy of bimekizumab observed at 16 weeks remained consistent through to 52 weeks in the treatment of bDMARD-naïve patients with PsA. Patients who started the trial on placebo and switched to bimekizumab at week 16 showed similar improvements to those patients who were randomised to receive bimekizumab at the start of the trail. No new safety signals were identified.

July 2023

Results from the 3-year PsABio study demonstrated that, generally, ustekinumab and TNFi treatment led to an improvement in PROs. In coming to this conclusion, researchers aimed to evaluate the real-world effect of ustekinumab or a TNFi on PRO and their association with effectiveness endpoints in PsA patients over 3 years.

March 2023

These real-world data from PsABio on gender differences suggest that, at the start of biologic treatment, females have a worse clinical picture of PsA than males. In coming to these conclusions and others, this study sought to investigate effects of gender on disease characteristics and treatment impact in patients with PsA.

January 2023

This study highlighted that the safety of bimekizumab in patients with PsA over 3 years of treatment was consistent with the previous 48-week results, as well as other recently published studies of IL-17 inhibitors in PsA patients.

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.
