Efficacy of Pharmacological Interventions: A Systematic Review Informing the 2023 EULAR Recommendations for the Management of Fatigue in People with Inflammatory Rheumatic and Musculoskeletal Diseases
RMD Open 2023;9(4):e003349 doi 10.1136/rmdopen-2023-003349
Adalimumab demonstrated superiority over placebo in reducing fatigue in RA at 12 and 52 weeks. Other interventions, which included golimumab, baricitinib, sarilumab, tocilizumab, and tofacitinib, also proved effective in reducing fatigue in patients with RA. Secukinumab also reduced fatigue by Week 52 in patients with SpA.

These recommendations from EULAR provide consensus and up-to-date guidance on fatigue management in people with I-RMDs, which includes advice regarding pharmacological and non-pharmacological interventions.
Implementation of Regulatory Guidance for JAK Inhibitors Use in Patients with Immune-Mediated Inflammatory Diseases: An International Appropriateness Study
Autoimmun Rev. 2023;23(3):103504 doi: 10.1016/j.autrev.2023.103504 Epub ahead of print
In this two-round modified RAM study by Solitano, et al., the authors found that experts preferred to assess JAK inhibitor risk on a case-by-case basis across all specialties. Uncertainty remained on several clinical scenarios regarding the appropriate use of JAK inhibitors, however they remain an important therapy option for the treatment of IMIDs and were deemed appropriate for patients with moderate risk profiles.
Differential Properties of Janus Kinase Inhibitors in the Treatment of Immune-mediated Inflammatory Diseases
Rheumatology (Oxford) 2023;63(2):298–308 doi 10.1093/rheumatology/kead448
JAKis differ in structure, which affects their inhibitory concentration for different JAKs.
This review by Taylor, et al. compares the pharmacological profiles of JAKis, including abrocitinib, baricitinib, filgotinib, peficitinib, tofacitinib, and upadacitinib.
Differences and Similarities Between the EULAR/ASAS-EULAR and National Recommendations for Treatment of Patients with Psoriatic Arthritis and Axial Spondyloarthritis Across Europe
Lancet Reg Health Eur. 2023;33:100706 doi: 10.1016/j.lanepe.2023.100706
Comparing the alignment of European national recommendations for patients with PsA and axSpA with EULAR and ASAS-EULAR treatment recommendations found that only a minority of national treatment recommendations were completely aligned.

Efficacy and Safety of Biological DMARDs: A Systematic Literature Review Informing the 2022 Update of the ASAS-EULAR Recommendations for the Management of Axial Spondyloarthritis
Ann Rheum Dis 2022; online ahead of print doi:10.1136/ard-2022-223298
New evidence supports the efficacy and safety of TNFi (originators/biosimilars) and IL-17i in r-axSpA and nr-axSpA. This systematic literature review was conducted to inform the taskforce of the 2022 update of the ASAS-EULAR recommendations.
Ann Rheum Dis 2022; online ahead of print doi:10.1136/ard-2022-223296
Since the last update in 2016, more data have become available on existing treatment options for axSpA, and particularly on IL-17i. The increasing availability of more drugs and with different modes of action raises questions around their positioning in the treatment pathway. This review sought to update the 2016 recommendations with newly available evidence.
