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 extension study provided continued treatment to subjects with active rheumatoid arthritis who had participated for ≥16 weeks in a pharmacokinetic similarity study of PF-05280586 (potential rituximab biosimilar). Objectives were to evaluate overall pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, immunogenicity, safety, and tolerability of PF-05280586 after transition from a licensed rituximab product to PF-05280586, and followup of biomarker and efficacy assessments.
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.
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 inflammatory disease and Notch pathway plays a pivotal role in synoviocytes involved in progression of RA.
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) as an inflammatory autoimmune disease affects the synovial joints as well as other organs and tissues. Since aberrant expression of MIC molecules has been observed in RA patient, MIC genotypes might play certain roles in the development of RA.
To investigate the long term persistence of rituximab (RTX) in a large observational RA cohort, investigate persistence of RTX when used as a first or second line biologic DMARD (bDMARD), to characterize subsequent bDMARD treatment following RTX.
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.
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.
To determine whether a detailed sonographic evaluation of the hand flexor tendon compartment could help differentiate between psoriatic arthritis (PsA) and rheumatoid arthritis (RA).
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...
