This article summarizes their recommendations on the management of patients on DMARDs during pregnancy and lactation. The two chemoprophylaxis regimens commonly used in the UK are isoniazid for 6 months (6H) or rifampicin plus isoniazid for 3 months (3RH). Baseline assessment should include height, weight, blood pressure and laboratory evaluation [full blood count (FBC), calculated glomerular filtration rate (GFR), alanine aminotransferase (ALT) and/or asparate aminotransferase (AST), albumin; GRADE … Interestingly in the DANBIO study, when comparing the anti-TNF-treated RA group against the general population this association was no longer seen. This study, along with data from the RABBIT, BIOBADASER and CORRONA registries, was included in a 2014 meta-analysis, which found a pooled risk ratio for HZ with TNF inhibitors of 1.61 (95% CI: 1.16, 2.23) [195]. Suzuki et al. Oxford University Press is a department of the University of Oxford. Among the 13 patients for whom follow-up data were available, one patient experienced no resolution, nine patients had partial resolution and three patients had complete resolution of Guillain–Barré syndrome following therapy. In the BSRBR-RA the rate of TB was higher with ADA (144 events/100 000 person-years) and INF (136 events/100 000 person-years) than with ETN (39 events/100 000 person-years) [47]. This guideline does not cover the indications for DMARD therapy or the use of biologic therapy and other selective non-biologic DMARDs (e.g. TCZ should be stopped at least 4 weeks prior to and s.c. TCZ at least 2 weeks prior to surgery. Kapetanovic MC, Saxne T, Nilsson JA, Geborek P. Elkayam O, Bashkin A, Mandelboim M et al. Previous vaccination with BCG will also cause a skin reaction but of a lower magnitude than after exposure to TB. Overall, pneumococcal vaccine is recommended in patients receiving anti-TNF therapy, but clinicians should be aware that the response to vaccination may be attenuated if anti-TNF and MTX are used in combination. This additional risk may be unacceptable to patients, and needs to be carefully weighed up against the perceived benefits when prescribing biologic therapies. A small Brazilian study of 11 RA patients receiving ABA found a reduced immune response to the influenza vaccine [273]. For this reason it is not recommended for those already on immunosuppressive medication, such as AZA (>3.0 mg/kg/day), ciclosporin, MTX (>25 mg/week), CYC, LEF or equivalent 40 mg prednisolone/day); this group will cover a significant proportion of patients due to start anti-TNF therapy. The overall crude rate of non-viral OI in the TNF group was 2.7 vs 1.7 per 1000 person-years in those receiving only csDMARD (adjusted HR = 1.6, 95% CI: 1, 2.6). The Canadian Rheumatology Association (CRA) has developed recommendations for the pharmacological management of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) with traditional and biologic disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARD) in 2 parts. has received sponsorship to attend a national meeting by Pfizer. Comfortable at rest. BP: blood pressure. Godot S, Gottenberg JE, Paternotte S et al. or s.c. TCZ, with or without MTX, should have laboratory monitoring every 4 weeks for neutrophils and ALT/AST (grade 2B). The 2011 NICE guideline cg117 [76] and the 2005 BTS guideline [208] recommend that high-risk TB patients should be monitored every 3 months (with a CXR and sputum cultures, if respiratory symptoms develop). The maximum licensed dose for RA is 25mg/week. via an advice line (Helpline)] for advice within one working day (grade 1C, SOA 98%). In the case of ADA, ADA alone has not been shown to affect the antibody titre response to pneumococcal immunization, but the combination of MTX and ADA was shown to be associated with decreased response rates when compared with MTX alone [266]. However, early clinical trials of ETN and IFX used as a treatment of heart failure reported an increased risk of worsening chronic heart failure [150–152]. A retrospective review of Mayo clinic records 1998–2011 [253] looked at the clinical features, histopathological features and outcomes where diagnosis of vasculitis induced by anti-TNF had been made. Anti-TNF therapy should not be given when there is a personal history of multiple sclerosis or other demyelinating diseases. Over 893 person-years of follow-up, two new genital cancers were observed in the csDMARD group vs no new genital cancers in the anti-TNF group. Public Health England recommend that live attenuated vaccines should not be routinely given to individuals who are immunosuppressed (including those receiving biologic therapy). Askling J, Fahrbach K, Nordstrom B et al. Linking landscape composition and biological factors with exposure levels of rodenticides and agrochemicals in avian apex predators from Germany. Thank you for submitting a comment on this article. But, leflunomide, mycophenolate and methotrexate (MTX) should be avoided. Accompanying each recommendation in this guideline, in brackets, is the strength of recommendation, quality of evidence and SOA. A registry-based study, Outcome of tocilizumab treatment in refractory ocular inflammatory diseases, Non-anti-TNF biologic modifier drugs in non-infectious refractory chronic uveitis: the current evidence from a systematic review. There is a relative paucity of long-term observational data investigating the risk of infection in other types of IA, such as AS and PsA. Nishimoto N, Miyasaka N, Yamamoto K et al. This guideline was commissioned by the BSR Standards, Guidelines and Audit Working Group. In this situation, ensuring that one dosing interval has elapsed before surgery should be sufficient even with procedures deemed to have a higher risk of infection. Gross RL, Schwartzman-Morris JS, Krathen M et al. In addition, there were a very small number of articles identified through the search strategy that we were unable to obtain through university library channels. There was no correlation between peri-operative disease activity, dose of ETN (25 vs 50 mg) or preoperative waiting period off biologics (<14 or >14 days) and likelihood of adverse events. The efficacy of the influenza vaccine in patients treated with RTX has been examined in several cohort studies. Patients who have been stable for 12 months can be considered for reduced frequency monitoring on an individual patient basis. In a case–control study of RA patients with occult HBV infection [92], the use of anti-TNF therapy was more frequent in those with HBV reactivation than not (86 vs 36%) P = 0.008, hazard ratio (HR) = 10.9 (95% CI: 1.4, 87.7). Jo Ledingham, Nicola Gullick, Katherine Irving, Rachel Gorodkin, Melissa Aris, Jean Burke, Patrick Gordon, Dimitrios Christidis, Sarah Galloway, Eranga Hayes, Andrew Jeffries, Scott Mercer, Janice Mooney, Sander van Leuven, James Galloway, on behalf of the BSR and BHPR Standards, Guidelines and Audit Working Group, BSR and BHPR guideline for the prescription and monitoring of non-biologic disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs, Rheumatology, Volume 56, Issue 6, June 2017, Pages 865–868, https://doi.org/10.1093/rheumatology/kew479. [95] found that of the reported cases of overt HBV patients treated with anti-TNF agents, HBV reactivation was 2.5-fold higher in patients not receiving prophylaxis (64 vs 26%). There are limited data assessing the effect of immunosuppression on hepatitis C. A prospective RCT of 29 patients receiving ETN, MTX or both found that AST, ALT and HCV viral load did not significantly change across all three arms up to 54 weeks [98]. 1 It is a devastating disease, with drastic consequences for most individuals, for example cardiovascular risks, an increased likelihood of work instability, and disability. Although the results from studies appear reassuring for this group of drugs with regards to TB reactivation, until more data are available, the advice given for anti-TNF therapy should be considered. This advice is for clinicians. The proportions of severe HZ ranged from 2.0 to 5.5% with csDMARDS, compared with 4.9–20.9% with TNF-blockers [195]. General principles DMARDs are slow acting drugs which may take weeks to months to produce any clinical response. Patients receiving biologic therapy alongside a csDMARD may require blood test monitoring more frequently than every 3 months, depending on which csDMARD they are receiving. QFT measures the IFN-γ concentration (IU/ml) using ELISA technology, whereas T-SPOT.TB reports the number of T cells producing IFN-γ (spot forming cells). These guidelines covered the indications and precautions for the use of anti-TNF agents, and the action that should be taken in the case of an adverse event. If the use of live vaccines is necessary, at least 2 weeks, but preferably 4 weeks should be allowed before anti-TNF therapy is commenced.

The CRA Therapeutics Committee assembled a national working group of RA clinical experts, researchers, … Cutaneous small vessel vasculitis was the most common but systemic involvement including peripheral nerve and renal vasculitis was frequently observed; mean duration of anti-TNF prior to development of vasculitis was 34.5 months (2–72 month range). Although most at-risk individuals will have received papillomavirus vaccine in childhood, there may be scenarios where young adults receiving biologics over the age of 18 have not received vaccination. There is a national human papillomavirus (HPV) childhood vaccination programme in place in the UK, introduced in 2008 for secondary-school-age girls of 12–13 years, although girls may receive their HPV vaccination programme up to their 18th birthday. Although there have been some inconsistencies between the results from various analyses, the majority of studies have found a significant association between anti-TNF drugs in patients with RA and a higher risk of serious infection. A UK study of 108 patients receiving RTX for RA between October 2007 and July 2011 identified five patients (4.6%) who developed late-onset neutropaenia (LON; neutrophil count ⩽1.5 × 109 after a median of 151 days [70–181, 215]; two patients developed pneumonia. A European League Against Rheumatism (EULAR) task force was established to define points to consider on use of antirheumatic drugs before pregnancy, and during pregnancy and lactation. What baseline screening is needed prior to drug initiation? This is in line with advice from a recently published systematic review by the ACR and American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons [296]. Encouragingly, in two further studies, no increased incidence of HZ or varicella zoster was shown following vaccination in individuals with autoimmune disease receiving a variety of biologic therapies [201]. However, given the inconclusive evidence available, the optimum screening strategy is unclear, with disagreement on whether to use an IGRA or TST, or both. Health-care professionals should have a high index of suspicion for atypical/OIs, especially if current or recent steroid use. Data on the use of TCZ or UST in patients with a history of malignancy are lacking. Check FBC, creatinine/calculated GFR, ALT and/or AST and albumin every 2 weeks until on stable dose for 6 weeks; then once on stable dose, monthly FBC, creatinine/calculated GFR, ALT and/or AST and albumin for 3 months; thereafter, FBC, creatinine/calculated GFR, ALT and/or AST and albumin at least every 12 weeks. This study was, however, limited by the information on the clinical diagnoses available to the authors. Screening for HCV infection is at present based on the detection of anti-HCV antibodies. The guideline does not cover the use of biologic therapy for conditions other than RA, axial SpA including AS and PsA, nor safety in individuals aged <18 years. treatment within the past 3 months with >40 mg prednisolone per day for >1 week, >20 mg prednisolone per day for >14 days, MTX >25 mg/week, AZA >3.0 mg/kg/day). A study that pooled data from the double-blind and open-label phases of five clinical trials of s.c. ABA reported an incidence rate (IR) of serious infections of 1.79 (95% CI: 1.42, 2.24), which did not significantly change over time (mean exposure 27.3 months) [36]. This guideline is aimed at secondary health care professionals who are involved in the management of patients with IA receiving biologic therapies. A Dutch retrospective study [282] of 1219 surgical procedures in RA patients found that peri-operative continuation of anti-TNF therapy did not seem to be an important risk factor for surgical site infection. TCZ has been noted to cause an initial rise in serum lipids [187, 221, 231], but long-term extension studies have shown them to broadly stabilize within 3 months [232]. There are no data regarding treatment with UST and response to the pneumococcal vaccine.
