Adalimumab therapy effective in AS, RA and PsA patients refractory to other anti-TNF therapies
Date:6/12/2008

. 54% of patients who had previously been intolerant of their medications reached ASAS20 and 37% reached ASAS40. Of those who had had no response to previous treatment, 41% reached ASAS20, and 27% achieved ASAS40.

Rheumatoid arthritis

66% of RA patients who had lost response to their previous anti-TNF treatment reached ACR20 (American Collage of Rheumatology 20% symptom improvement) after twelve weeks, and 36% reached ACR50 (50% symptom improvement). 67% of previously anti-TNF intolerant patients reached ACR20, and 39% attained ACR50. 51% of patients who had had no response to an anti-TNF in the past reached ACR20, and 26% achieved ACR50.

Psoriatic arthritis

42% of PsA patients who had previously undergone anti-TNF therapy achieved ACR50 and had a mean change in DAS28 of -2.1 after 12 weeks of adalimumab therapy.

About the Trials

Investigators examined patients with a disease duration of 9-12 years who were enrolled into three large, open-label studies: 1,250 AS patients in the RHAPSODY trial, 6,610 RA patients in ReAct, and 442 PsA patients in STEREO. All patients received 40mg adalimumab subcutaneously every other week for 12 weeks, in addition to their current antirheumatic treatment regimens. Patients with prior anti-TNF experience could only enroll into RHAPSODY or STEREO studies if infliximab therapy had been discontinued two months or longer previously and/or etanercept therapy had been discontinued three or more weeks previously. Those who entered the ReAct trial had to have discontinued etanercept and infliximab therapies two months or more prior to the start of the study.

In these three studies, adalimumab appeared to be well-tolerated in patients with prior anti-TNF treatment in all three disease groups.
