The dose dependent effect of statins on osteoporosis
Statins are some of the most commonly prescribed cholesterol-lowering drugs. They act by inhibiting HMG-CoA reductase, the main enzyme in the synthesis of cholesterol. Earlier studies have shown that statins have an osteoprotective effect: a recently published paper has shown that there is a dose-dependent relationship between different kinds of statins with diagnosis of osteoporosis. "We could find an underrepresentation of osteoporosis in low-dose and an overrepresentation in high-dose statin treatment," says first author Dr. Michael Leutner, MSc PhD (Department of Internal Medicine 3, Division of Endocrinology and Metabolism, Medical University of Vienna), who discusses the details of his study with Dr. Paul Studenic in this podcast.

A prediction score for individuals at risk to develop rheumatoid arthritis
In this podcast recorded at the ACR meeting 2019, Dr. Caroline Ospelt speaks to Prof. Anca Catrina and Dr. Aase Hensvold both of the Division of Rheumatology at the Department of Medicine located at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm Sweden. Hensvold et al. developed a prediction score by combining several clinical and blood-based markers that could be useful in predicting which patients with auto-antibodies and musculoskeletal symptoms develop ultrasound-detectable arthritis. These are the first results of an ongoing study on individuals at-risk for rheumatoid arthritis.

Prediction of radiographic progression using synovitis characteristics
Dr. Felice Rivellese from the Center of Experimental Medicine and Rheumatology at the Queen Mary University in London discusses the results of his presentation at the ACR 2019 with Dr. Caroline Ospelt. In a subanalysis of the pathobiology of the Early Arthitis Cohort (PEAC), Rivellese at al could show that B cell-rich synovitis is associated with disease severity and radiographic progression, in particular, if B cell infiltrates persist after cDMARD treatment.

Highlights from ACR: guselkumab, ixekizumab and secukinumab in SpA
Atul Deodhar, from the Oregon Health & Science University, provides an overview of recent clinical trial results in the area of seronegative Spondylarthritis. He presented the 24-week data of Guselkumab in active psoriatic arthritis patients in the DISCOVER-1 study and compared the phase 3 trials in non-radiographic SpA patients on Ixekizumab (COAST-X) and Secukinumab (PREVENT) with up to 52 week data available.

TULIP 2: Efficacy and Safety of Anifrolumab in Patients
TULIP 2: Efficacy and Safety of Anifrolumab in Patients with Moderate to Severe Systemic Lupus Erythematosus: Results of the Second Phase 3 Randomized Controlled Trial. In this second phase 3 trial, the primary endpoint, BICLA, was achieved, and anifrolumab was superior to placebo for multiple secondary efficacy endpoints, including SRI(4), skin disease, and oral corticosteroid tapering.

Capture Hi-C reveals novel drug targets in rheumatic diseases
The paper discussed in this podcast provides an approach, using Capture Hi-C data, to link genetic associations to potential causal genes and assess the potential of drug repurposing in three rheumatic diseases. This has the potential to identify genes which are functionally relevant and the target of existing therapies, which could provide new ways to treat patients, enhancing their quality of life and reducing the economic impact on healthcare providers.

Musculoskeletal diseases on the rise worldwide and affecting developed countries the most
Musculoskeletal diseases have increased significantly between 2000 and 2015 and are now the second cause of years lived with disability worldwide, a study recently published by ARD concludes. The paper also adds that the burden is higher in Europe. “The richest the country, the highest the burden of musculoskeletal diseases”, says the leading author. Professor Laurent Arnaud and Dr Eden Sebbag(Department of Rheumatology - Centre National de Référence des Maladies Systémiques Rares Est Sud-Ouest, Hôpitaux Universitaires de Strasbourg, France) discuss the details of the study with ARD's Social Media Advisor, Dr Paul Studenic.

Early inflammatory arthritis outcomes: what changed in the new millennium?
A study that compares the 10-year outcome (disease activity, disability, mortality) of two cohorts of patients with inflammatory polyarthritis recruited 10 years apart is discussed in this podcast. The results from the UK’s Norfolk Arthritis Register are shared by two of its co-authors from the Arthritis Research UK Centre for Epidemiology, Centre for Musculoskeletal Research, School of Biological Sciences, Manchester Academic Health Science Centre: James Gwinnutt and Suzanne Verstappen (NIHR Manchester Biomedical Research Centre) in conversation with the social media advisor for ARD Meghna Jani.

Similar performance of Humira and BI695501 biosimilar in active rheumatoid arthritis
The switch from Humira to BI 695501 had no impact on efficacy, safety and immunogenicity in patients with moderately to severely active rheumatoid arthritis, according to a study recently published by ARD and discussed in this short podcast. Professor Stanley Cohen (Metroplex Clinical Research Center, Dallas, Texas, USA) tells ARD’s social media advisor Elena Nikiphorou (clinical researcher at King’s College London, UK) how the conclusions should have an important economic impact, particularly in less favoured clinical settings in the world.

Patient and doctor discordance may reduce chances of remission in rheumatoid and psoriatic arthritis
Discordance between patient's and physician's evaluation of disease activity may reduce likelihood of remission in rheumatoid arthritis and psoriatic arthritis. Dr Paul Studenic, Austria, is joined by Dr Brigitte Michelsen and Prof Tore Kvien, both from the department of Rheumatology at the Diakonhjemmet Hospital in Oslo, Norway, to discuss their study "Discordance between tender and swollen joint count as well as patient's and evaluator's global assessment may reduce likelihood of remission in patients with rheumatoid arthritis and psoriatic arthritis: data from the prospective multicentre NOR-DMARD study".
