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

imab dose with subsequent step up therapy seems to be an efficient strategy.

Danish patients received higher infliximab doses than Icelandic patients at baseline (median (IQR) 3.1 (3.0-3.8) mg/kg vs. 2.3 (2.1-2.9) mg/kg, p<0.05) and after 12 months (3.3 (3.0-4.5) mg/kg vs. 2.9 (2.2-3.5) mg/kg, p<0.0001). In Danish patients, the start dose was ≤3 mg/kg in 110 patients (29%), 3-5 mg/kg in 157(42%), ≥5 mg/kg in 38(10%) and unregistered in 71(19%). In Icelandic patients, the corresponding numbers were 64 (74%), 17 (27%), 0 (0%) and 5 (6%). Patients with higher body weight received lower infliximab doses per kg.

"Despite these important differences between Icelandic and Danish patients, they were found to have similar one-year response rates," said Dr Glintborg. After 12 months, 58% of Danish and 66% of Icelandic patients maintained treatment. In univariate analyses stratified by country, the time until dose escalation, ACR20/50/70 or EULAR-response rates, drug adherence and one-year's disease activity were independent of the baseline dose of infliximab," Dr Glintborg explained.

This was an observational cohort study based on the nationwide DANBIO and ICEBIO registries. Among the 1,589 psoriatic arthritis patients identified in the two registries, 462 patients (29%, 376 Danish, 86 Icelandic) received treatment with infliximab. Dose escalation was defined as an increase in either the dose and/or frequency. Treatment response was evaluated by ACR20/50/70 and EULAR-good-response after six months of treatment and disease activity after one year of treatment. Kaplan-Meier plots and regression analyses were performed to analyse adherence to treatment and to identify predictors of treatment response and adherence.
