Rheumatoid arthritis is associated with an increased cardiovascular risk, secondary to endothelial dysfunction. There is accumulating evidence that methotrexate reduces cardiovascular risk in rheumatoid arthritis, but the mechanisms involved are still unknown. In this study, we aimed to determine the effect of methotrexate on endothelial function and traditional cardiovascular risk factors in the adjuvant-induced arthritis (AIA) rat model.
This multinational, randomized, double-blind trial, (ClinicalTrials.gov identifier NCT02149121) was designed to demonstrate equivalence in pharmacokinetics and efficacy between CT-P10 and innovator rituximab (RTX) in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Adults with active RA were treated with CT-P10, United States-sourced RTX (US-RTX; Rituxan®), or European Union-sourced RTX (EU-RTX; MabThera®) at weeks 0 and 2. The co-primary pharmacokinetic endpoints were area under the serum concentration-time curv...
Efficacy and safety of certolizumab pegol in combination with methotrexate in methotrexate-inadequate responder Chinese patients with active rheumatoid arthritis: 24-week results from a randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled phase 3 study.
To evaluate the efficacy and safety of certolizumab pegol (CZP) in combination with methotrexate (MTX) in Chinese patients with active rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and an inadequate response to MTX.
The mechanism of liver injury with low-dose methotrexate (MTX) is incompletely understood. This study was designed to evaluate the association between non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and liver injury during MTX treatment for rheumatoid arthritis (RA).
Methotrexate has been used in treatment of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) since the 1980s and to this day is often the first line medication for RA treatment. In this review, we examine multiple hypotheses to explain the mechanism of methotrexate efficacy in RA. These include folate antagonism, adenosine signaling, generation of reactive oxygen species (ROS), decrease in adhesion molecules, alteration of cytokine profiles, and polyamine inhibition amongst some others. Currently, adenosine signaling is probably t...
To review the evidence for benefits and harms of folate (folic acid or folinic acid) supplementation on methotrexate (MTX) treatment for rheumatoid arthritis (RA), to assess whether or not folate supplementation would reduce MTX toxicity or reduce MTX benefits, and to decide whether a higher MTX dosage is essential.
Controlled clinical studies have shown that the efficacy of tocilizumab (TCZ) monotherapy is superior to that of tumor necrosis factor inhibitor (TNFi) monotherapy and comparable to that of TCZ plus methotrexate (MTX) for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis (RA). This study compared the real-world effectiveness of TCZ monotherapy vs. TNFis plus MTX in US patients with RA.
Tryptophan and its metabolites have been suggested to play a role in inflammatory processes. However, studies in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) are scarce, which prompted us to investigate two cohorts of RA patients to better understand the importance of tryptophan metabolism in this disease.
To evaluate changes in the high-density lipoprotein (HDL) proteome and HDL function in active rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients initiating therapy with abatacept or adalimumab in the Abatacept Versus Adalimumab Comparison in Biologic-Naïve RA Subjects with Background Methotrexate (AMPLE) study.
Obese patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) report more joint swelling and tenderness and often have poorer responses to therapy than nonobese patients. The aim of this posthoc analysis of the MUSICA trial was to compare imaging and clinical disease activity measures in obese and nonobese patients with RA.
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic, autoimmune joint disease associated with increased risk of multiorgan involvement and comorbidities such as osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease, and infections. Therefore, doctors in other specialities should have knowledge of RA. No diagnostic criteria are available, but the classification criteria are often used as a diagnostic tool. Early initiation of effective immunosuppressive treatment is essential to improve outcome. The cornerstone of treatment is intra-arti...
The objective of the study was to compare compliance and acceptability of a new auto-injector (AI) versus syringe for administration of methotrexate (MTX) in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA).
Oral targeted synthetic disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs (DMARDs), including the Janus kinase inhibitors tofacitinib and baricitinib, are the latest addition to the therapeutic options for rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Tofacitinib 5 mg, twice daily, is approved for treatment, with or without methotrexate, of moderate to severe active RA in adults not adequately responding to, or not tolerating one or more DMARDs. In this narrative review we aimed to provide an overview of the real-world evidence for tofa...
To investigate the added value of MTX-HCQ combination therapy (CTG) in early RA in a controlled cohort study. MTX monotherapy (MTG) is recommended as (part of) first choice treatment but no head-to-head comparisons are available comparing MTX-HCQ CTG with MTG.
F-FDG PET/CT has been proposed in the evaluation of the disease activity in rheumatoid arthritis (RA). The goals of this study were to evaluate the reproducibility of the technique, to compare metabolic parameters to clinical, biological and ultrasonographic parameters before and after treatment and to evaluate whether the early metabolic response was related to the outcome. F- FDG PET/CT of the hands, wrists and knees was obtained in 15 patients with anti-TNFα refractory RA, at baseline and 16 weeks afte...
Methotrexate (MTX) is used as an anchor disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs (DMARDs) in treating rheumatoid arthritis (RA) because of its potent efficacy and tolerability. MTX benefits a large number of RA patients but partially suffered from side effects. A variety of side effects can be associated with MTX when treating RA patients, from mild to severe or discontinuation of the treatment. In this report, we reviewed the possible side effects that MTX might cause from the most common gastrointestinal to...
To explore the role of TNF-α in the peripheral blood of patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and its underlying mechanism.
Chronic inflammation of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is associated with disturbances in muscle and bone metabolism.
Interferon alpha-induced arthritis and activation of the type 1 interferon pathway during rheumatoid arthritis (RA) has been well documented but the underlying mechanism remains unclear. This study addressed the binding specificity of antibodies with recombinant interferon alpha 2b (rIFN -2b) in sera from different RA patients. Utilization of anti-hrIFN -2b antibodies as a probe for estimation of interferon -2b concentration in RA patients' synovial fluid (SF) was also investigated.
Clinical outcomes in patients with early rheumatoid arthritis (RA) were assessed by baseline symptom duration in the Assessing Very Early Rheumatoid arthritis Treatment trial (ClinicalTrials.gov; NCT01142726). Patients with early, active RA were randomized to subcutaneous (SC) abatacept 125 mg/week plus methotrexate (MTX), SC abatacept alone, or MTX monotherapy for 12 months. All RA treatments were withdrawn after 12 months in patients with Disease Activity Score in 28 joints (C-reactive protein; DAS28-CRP...
Methotrexate is one of the most widely used disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs. The hepatotoxicity of methotrexate resulted in poor compliance with therapy. The current study was designed to analyse the combined therapy of andrographolide (AD) and methotrexate (MTX) for complete Freund's adjuvant (CFA)-induced arthritis, focusing on hepatoprotective effects, oxidative stress and arthritic-related cytokines.
Methotrexate (MTX) is the standard of care in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis (RA), a common autoimmune disease that is characterized by chronic inflammation in the synovial membrane of joints. Unfortunately, MTX suffers from high discontinuation rates due to a large variability in efficacy and, in particular, adverse effects. As inflammation is associated with elevated levels of reactive oxygen species (ROS) like HO, we propose to improve treatment through site-selective delivery of MTX to inflammato...
Treat-to-target implementation in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) requires a shared decision making (SDM) process. However, ability to pay is a major determinant of patient choice, but how this factor affects SDM is under explored.
Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is a chronic inflammatory disease that has a major impact on patients´ quality of life. The Rheumatoid Arthritis Quality of Life (RAQoL) questionnaire is a patient-reported outcome measure, specific to RA. The aim of this study was to translate and perform the cross-cultural adaptation of the RAQoL into Portuguese.
