Findings demonstrate differences in modulation of specific psoriatic inflammatory pathways between ustekinumab vs. etanercept responders. These data also.
The efficacy and safety of the TNF‑α inhibitor etanercept (ETA) as a treatment for rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is well established by randomized controlled trials. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the benefit yielded by ETA within the regular outpatient care.
In patients undergoing immunotherapy, the quality of the immune response is reduced, which may negatively affect the efficacy of vaccination. This study was conducted in order to evaluate the efficacy of the hepatitis B virus (HBV) vaccine in patients using immunomodulators. Seronegative patients for HBV who were using biological agents, were included in the study. The vaccination was administered...
SJS/TEN are spectrum of rare, acute and life-threatening delayed-type drug hypersensitivity reactions that are associated with high mortality rates. However, no therapeutic standard has been proposed for SJS/TEN. Here, we report a case of a patient diagnosed with Stevens-Johnson syndrome whose disease progression was halted by a single dose of etanercept and was treated successfully. In addition, ...
To evaluate radiographic progression in the sacroiliac joints (SIJ) and to identify its predictors during long-term (up to six years) treatment with tumor necrosis factor (TNF) inhibitor etanercept in patients with early axial spondyloarthritis (axSpA).
Background After the expiry of the patent of reference etanercept, several biosimilars have been developed, including SB4. Objective To study safety and efficacy of SB4 in psoriatic patients previously treated with etanercept and in the etanercept naive ones. Method Patients affected by moderate to severe psoriasis and/or psoriatic arthritis attending the Psoriasis Center of Florence University, t...
Pyoderma gangrenosum (PG) is a rare ulcerative skin disease that presents a therapeutic challenge. Tumour necrosis factor alpha (TNFα) inhibitors have been reported to successfully control PG. Our aim was to systematically evaluate and compare the clinical effectiveness of TNFα inhibitors in adults with PG. A literature search including databases such as PubMed, Embase, Scopus, and Web of Scienc...
Etanercept is a recombinant Fc-fusion protein widely used to treat rheumatic diseases. This protein is highly glycosylated and contains numerous O- and N-glycosylation sites. Since glycosylation is recognized as an important critical quality attribute (CQA) that can affect immunogenicity, solubility, and stability of Fc-fusion proteins, it should be thoroughly characterized. In this work, hydrophi...
Corticosteroids are the standard of care for first line treatment of patients who develop grades II-IV of acute Graft-versus-Host Disease (a-GvHD), but the optimal second-line treatment has not been determined yet. We prospectively evaluated the use of anti-TNFα monoclonal antibody Etanercept (ET) as second line treatment in children with steroid-refractory a-GvHD.
Tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-α) is produced in Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH) lesions and is elevated in plasma of patients with active LCH. It has been postulated that TNF-α may play a role in the pathophysiology of LCH. Etanercept, an anti-TNF-α antibody, has been used in TNF-modulated diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis (RA). We conducted a phase II study to determine the efficacy...
Paeoniflorin-6'-O-benzene sulfonate (CP-25) is a new ester derivative of paeoniflorin with improved lipid solubility and oral bioavailability, as well as better anti-inflammatory activity than its parent compound. In this study we explored whether CP-25 exerted therapeutic effects in collagen-induced arthritis (CIA) mice through regulating B-cell activating factor (BAFF)-BAFF receptors-mediated si...
To estimate biologic influence on heart failure (HF) risk in rheumatoid arthritis. Retrospective cohort (RECORD Study of Italian Society for Rheumatology) study on administrative healthcare databases. We identified 2527 patients treated with either etanercept (n = 1690) or abatacept (n = 837). HF incidence rate was higher in the abatacept cohort than in the etanercept cohort with a 2.38 (9...
The introduction of biologic agents opened a new era of treatment of juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) over the past decade. From clinical experience, it appears that biological agents are well tolerated overall, and serious adverse events are rare. However, such clinical studies have not been conducted in Korea. Therefore, we examined the safety profile of JIA patients with biologics in a singl...
This study aimed to investigate the predicting values of depression and anxiety symptoms for clinical response to etanercept treatment in psoriasis patients.
Response to etanercept therapy in patients who have failed apremilast therapy has not been well characterized.
Non peristomal postoperative pyoderma gangrenosum (PPG) is a rare subtype of pyoderma gangrenosum that occurs in the early postoperative period at surgical incisions, most commonly after breast surgery. Early diagnosis and treatment is essential to prevent severe scaring. TNF alpha inhibitor infliximab was reported to be efficient in treatment of PPG refractory to systemic corticosteroids. However...
Familial Mediterranean fever, a hereditary auto-inflammatory disease, mainly affects ethnic groups living in the Mediterranean region. Early studies reported colchicine as a potential drug for preventing attacks of familial Mediterranean fever. For those people who are colchicine-resistant or intolerant, drugs such as rilonacept, anakinra, canakinumab, etanercept, infliximab, thalidomide and inter...
To determine the percentage non-adherence to etanercept in patients with rheumatoid arthritis during three years of follow-up.
The advent of monoclonal antibody biosimilar products has stimulated the development of analytical methods that can better characterize an important quality attribute, namely the higher order structure (HOS). Here, we propose a simple approach based on heteronuclear 2D NMR techniques at natural abundance for generating spectral fingerprints of the HOS at high resolution. We show that the proposed ...
Tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-α is a cytokine that plays a well-established, key role as a central mediator of inflammation and immune regulation. TNF-α and its receptors are suggested to play a critical role in a number of chronic inflammatory diseases, including rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis (AS), juvenile chronic arthritis, and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD...
Our objective was to compare therapeutic response among patients with early-onset psoriasis (EOP) and late-onset psoriasis (LOP) receiving adalimumab, etanercept, infliximab, ustekinumab, or methotrexate in the Psoriasis Longitudinal Assessment and Registry (PSOLAR).
This study aimed to explore the correlation of circulating inflammatory cytokines' levels with treatment response to etanercept (ETN) treatment in psoriasis patients.
A network meta-analysis using randomized controlled trial data compared psoriatic arthritis (PsA) outcomes (American College of Rheumatology [ACR], Psoriasis Area Severity Index [PASI] and Psoriatic Arthritis Response Criteria [PsARC] response rates) at 12-16 weeks for secukinumab, adalimumab, apremilast, certolizumab, etanercept, golimumab, infliximab and ustekinumab.
