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.

Comparative Efficacy and Safety of Bimekizumab in Axial Spondyloarthritis: A Systematic Literature Review and Network Meta-analysis

Rheumatology (Oxford). 2023 doi: 10.1093/rheumatology/kead598 Epub ahead of print

This systematic literature review and network meta-analysis provides evidence for bimekizumab being an efficacious option in the management of both b/tsDMARD-naïve and experienced patients across the axSpA spectrum, with similar safety and tolerability to existing treatments.

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.

Long-Term Safety and Efficacy of Ixekizumab in Patients with Axial Spondyloarthritis: 3-year Data from the COAST Program

J Rheumatol. 2023;50(8):1020–1028 doi: 10.3899/jrheum.221022

Three-year data from the ixekizumab (IXE) COAST programme provide additional evidence that patients with axSpA receiving IXE experience long-term safety, and sustained improvements in efficacy outcomes, at 3 years.

The 2023 Pipeline of Disease-Modifying Antirheumatic Drugs (DMARDs) in Clinical Development for Spondyloarthritis (including psoriatic arthritis): a Systematic Review of Trials

RMD Open. 2023;9(3):e003279 doi 10.1136/rmdopen-2023-003279 https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/37507210/

This systematic review identified DMARDs evaluated for axSpA and PsA, distinguishing between csDMARDs, tsDMARDs, and bDMARDs. The review pinpointed twenty-six distinct targeted therapies currently in clinical development; 18 therapies for axSpA and 15 therapies for PsA.

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.

Sustained low functional impairment in axial spondyloarthritis (axSpA): Which are the primary outcomes that should be targeted to achieve this?

Arthritis Research & Therapy (2023) 25:70 https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/37118833/

This real-world study showed that sustained BASDAI <3 may be a valid and feasible target for a treat-to-target strategy in AxSpA, having function as treatment goal.

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.
