The Effect of Two Years of Secukinumab Treatment on Bone Metabolism in Patients with Radiographic Axial Spondyloarthritis: Results from Daily Clinical Practice

Biologics 2023;17:161–166 doi: 10.2147/BTT.S434318

Siderius, et al. found that secukinumab was associated with low spinal radiographic progression. Furthermore, bone-related outcomes and BTMs related to collagen resorption (sCTX, PINP) remained constant during the 2-year period, whereas the BTM related to mineralisation (BALP) decreased significantly.

Malignancy in the Upadacitinib Clinical Trials for Rheumatoid Arthritis, Psoriatic Arthritis, Ankylosing Spondylitis, and Non-radiographic Axial Spondyloarthritis

Rheumatol Ther 2023;11(1):97–112 doi 10.1007/s40744-023-00621-6

Rates of malignancy were similar between upadacitinib, adalimumab, and MTX. They were also consistent across RA, PsA, AS and nr-axSpA. A dose-dependent increased rate of NMSC was observed with upadacitinib in RA. For RA and PsA, being older (≥65 years) and male was associated with
an increased risk of malignancy excluding NMSC.

Bimekizumab Treatment in Patients With Active Axial Spondyloarthritis: 52-week Efficacy and Safety from the Randomised Parallel Phase 3 BE MOBILE 1 and BE MOBILE 2 Studies

Ann Rheum Dis. 2023;83(2):199–213 doi 10.1136/ard-2023-224803

Baraliakos, et al. present data from two Phase 3 studies, BE MOBILE 1 and BE MOBILE 2, that investigated the clinical efficacy and safety of bimekizumab in axSpA patients. They found that bimekizumab had sustained and consistent efficacy in patients with nr-axSpA and r-axSpA.

Do Fatty Lesions Explain the Effect of Inflammation on New Syndesmophytes in Patients with Radiographic Axial Spondyloarthritis? Results From the SIAS Cohort and ASSERT Trial

RMD Open. 2023 9(3):e003118 doi: 10.1136/rmdopen-2023-003118

This study concluded that, in r-axSpA, vertebral corner inflammation may lead to syndesmophyte formation but in a minority of cases via visible fat deposition. Here, investigators aimed to determine how much of the effect of vertebral corner inflammation on the development of syndesmophytes is explained by vertebral corner fat deposition.

Two‑Year Imaging Outcomes from a Phase 3 Randomized Trial of Secukinumab in Patients with Non‑Radiographic Axial Spondyloarthritis

Arthritis Res Ther. 2023;16;25(1):80 doi 10.1186/s13075-023-03051-5

Braun et al. studied a large cohort of patients with nr-axSpA, that demonstrated a secukinumab reduced SI joint inflammation (BME), this reduction was sustained over 104 weeks, from an overall low baseline level of spinal inflammation or structural damage.

Efficacy of Secukinumab on Dactylitis in Patients with Active Psoriatic Arthritis from the FUTURE 5 study

Clin Exp Rheumatol. 2023 doi: 10.55563/clinexprheumatol/vezf95

The presence of dactylitis was associated with a higher disease burden in patients with PsA compared with those without dactylitis at baseline. The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of secukinumab in patients with dactylitis at baseline over 2 years.

Efficacy and Safety of Golimumab in Patients with Non-radiographic Axial Spondyloarthritis: A Withdrawal and Retreatment Study (GO-BACK)

Rheumatology (Oxford) 2023;62(11):3601–3609 doi: 10.1093/rheumatology/kead112

This study highlighted that continued treatment with Golimumab (GLM) QMT or GLM Q2MT was superior to placebo. The GO-BACK study was designed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of golimumab treatment withdrawal in adults with nr-axSpA who demonstrate inactive disease during a 10-month open label GLM run-in.

Low Rates of Radiographic Progression Associated with Clinical Efficacy Following up to 2 Years of Treatment with Guselkumab: Results From a Phase 3, Randomised, Double-blind, Placebo-controlled Study of Biologic-naïve Patients with Active Psoriatic Arthritis

RMD Open. 2023 doi: 10.1136/rmdopen-2022-002789

Data from this paper provides a robust analysis of radiographic progression through 2 years in a phase 3 study of guselkumab in patients with PsA. This study sought to evaluate the relationship between radiographic progression and clinical outcomes in post hoc analyses of patients with PsA receiving up to 2 years of guselkumab therapy in DISCOVER-2.
