New publications with SCQM data

We would like to inform you about the most recent publications with SCQM data.

Two new axSpA publications occurred right around this year’s SGR congress in Interlaken covering the subjects of body mass and its effect on response to TNF inhibitors (TNFi) and the question about the potential role of TNFi on structural progression of the spine.

The RA publications we are pleased to inform you about are within international collaborations; In the PANABA collaboration, researchers investigated whether the patient’s BMI is associated with different response to Abatacept and in the latest CERERRA publication, a closer look was taken at the effectiveness of multiple treatment cycles of Rituximab.

A national research collaboration between the SCQM and the systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) cohort investigated quality of life of these patients and its development over time.

Last but not least we would like to draw your attention to the first peer reviewed publication with the SCQM PsA cohort data, investigating the relevance of joint involvement patterns in PsA.

The summary slides are made available to you on our online database under the tab ‘research’ (‘Forschung’ / ‘Ricerca’ / ‘Recherche’). Summary slides on the publication on structural progression of patients with Ankylosing Spondylitis are not yet available but will be posted in the online database soon.

We hope you enjoy reading the studies, all of which have been made possible by your engagement for the SCQM!
