One-third of psoriatic arthritis patients are not receiving optimal dosing of adalimumab
Date:6/11/2014

Data presented today at the European League Against Rheumatism Annual Congress (EULAR 2014) showed that a significant number of patients with psoriatic arthritis (PsA) were not receiving doses of the tumour necrosis factor-alpha (TNFα) inhibitor adalimumab necessary to achieve optimal clinical benefit.1 Further data revealed that, in the case of the TNFα inhibitor infliximab, nearly three-quarters of PsA patients were on doses lower than recommended in international guidelines. 2

In the first study, after 28 weeks of treatment one-third of PsA patients were found to have serum adalimumab trough concentrations below the 5 mg/L level shown to have an optimal effect. However, these low doses still showed reasonable efficacy1

In the second study, low dosing of infliximab in more than 70% of a population of Icelandic and Danish PsA patients did not seem to alter either treatment response or adherence to therapy2

PsA is a chronic inflammatory arthritis associated with psoriasis, which significantly impacts health-related quality of life, and may lead to severe, disabling joint damage.3 Psoriasis occurs in 1-3% of the population,4 with PsA occurring in up to 30% of those of cases.5

One third of PsA patients not receiving optimal dosing of adalimumab

Presenting the results of the Dutch study, lead author Mr. Erik Vogelzang of the Jan van Breemen Research Institute, Reade, Amsterdam, Netherlands reported that serum trough levels of adalimumab of 5- 8 mg/L appeared necessary to achieve the most optimal clinical benefit. Concentrations above 8 mg/L appeared to confer no additional benefit; however, concentrations of approximately 1.0 mg/L showed reasonable efficacy.1

"These results linking serum adalimumab trough concentrations to clinical response in PsA patients confirmed the findings from a previous study in RA patients," 6 said Mr. Erik Vogelzang.

"However, interestingly, of the 103 consecu
