Lancet Rheumatol 2023;5:e670–82 doi 10.1016/S2665-9913(23)00232-1

As part of the GBD 2021, the authors provide updated estimates for the global burden of musculoskeletal disorders, excluding RA, osteoarthritis, low back pain, neck pain, and gout. In 2020, the total years lived with disability globally was estimated to be 42.7 million, which was a 122% increase from 1990. Over the same time period, mortality increased by 199%. The study forecasts an increase in cases by 2050 in all regions, with the exception of Central Europe.

Real-world Treatment Patterns and Use of Adjunctive Pain and Anti-inflammatory Medications Among Patients with Psoriatic Arthritis Treated With IL-17A Inhibitors In The United States

J Manag Care Spec Pharm. 2022 doi: 10.18553/jmcp.2022.22144

In this study ixekizumab and secukinumab patients had similar treatment patterns. It was also surmised that the use of adjunctive pain and anti-inflammatory medications were similar between therapies. In coming to this conclusion investigators aimed to compare treatment patterns and use of pain and anti-inflammatory medications between patients with PsA initiating ixekizumab and secukinumab in two cohorts of patients from…(add here where is the population coming from).
