A Retrospective Cohort Study on the Risk of Serious Infections in Rheumatoid Arthritis Patients Receiving Tocilizumab

2019-10-10 09:39:44 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to evaluate whether the risk of serious infections in rheumatoid arthritis patients with tocilizumab is higher than in those with tumor necrosis factor inhibitors using the nationwide real-world data.

Description

This observational, retrospective cohort study using the Korean National Health Insurance (NHI) data will evaluate whether the risk of serious infections (SIs) in rheumatoid arthritis patients treated with tocilizumab is higher than in those with tumor necrosis factor inhibitors. We will compare incidence rates between two groups and estimate relative risks of SIs in tocilizumab users using the time-dependent Cox proportional hazard regression. Various covariates potentially related to RA severity and occurrence of infection will be assessed and used for adjustment.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A secreted tumor necrosis factor receptor family member that has specificity FAS LIGAND and TUMOR NECROSIS FACTOR LIGAND SUPERFAMILY MEMBER 14. It plays a modulating role in tumor necrosis factor signaling pathway.

A tumor necrosis factor receptor subtype that has specificity for TUMOR NECROSIS FACTOR ALPHA and LYMPHOTOXIN ALPHA. It is constitutively expressed in most tissues and is a key mediator of tumor necrosis factor signaling in the vast majority of cells. The activated receptor signals via a conserved death domain that associates with specific TNF RECEPTOR-ASSOCIATED FACTORS in the CYTOPLASM.

A recombinant version of soluble human TNF receptor that binds specifically to TUMOR NECROSIS FACTOR and inhibits its binding with endogenous TNF receptors. It prevents the inflammatory effect of TNF and is used to treat RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS; PSORIATIC ARTHRITIS and ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS.

A tumor necrosis factor receptor subtype with specificity for TUMOR NECROSIS FACTOR LIGAND SUPERFAMILY MEMBER 15. It is found in tissues containing LYMPHOCYTES and may play a role in regulating lymphocyte homeostasis and APOPTOSIS. The activated receptor signals via a conserved death domain that associates with specific TNF RECEPTOR-ASSOCIATED FACTORS in the CYTOPLASM.

A tumor necrosis factor receptor subtype that is expressed primarily in IMMUNE SYSTEM cells. It has specificity for membrane-bound form of TUMOR NECROSIS FACTORS and mediates intracellular-signaling through TNF RECEPTOR ASSOCIATED FACTORS.
