Biologic Therapy | Switching TNFs Can Work For Psoriatic Arthritis


Nancy Walsh writing in MedPage Today reported
,”Most patients with psoriatic arthritis responded well to a first-line biologic, but for many
of those who didn’t initially respond, switching to another agent proved beneficial, a researcher
reported” at the annual meeting of the British Society for Rheumatology. During “a retrospective
survey that included 548 patients, 74% showed an adequate response to treatment with a tumor
necrosis factor (TNF) inhibitor at 3 months, according to Meghna Jani, MBBS.” Meanwhile,
“among 94 patients who switched to a second TNF inhibitor, 52% responded ‘very well,’
she” said. Comment: It works for rheumatoid disease so
this doesn’t surprise me.
