patients (pts) with RA, the predictive value of baseline (BL) titers of anti-citrullinated protein antibodies (ACPA), a
known biomarker for RA and disease progression,1,2 on treatment
outcomes is not well understood. In this post
hoc analysis of the AMPLE study,3 we assessed the efficacy of SC abatacept (ABA) and adalimumab (ADA)
in pts with different BL levels of anti-cyclic citrullinated peptide 2 (CCP2) antibodies
(a surrogate for ACPA).
Methods: Pt samples were analyzed by anti-CCP2 immunoglobulin
(IgG) ELISA4 and efficacy outcomes were assessed in positive pts
divided into equal quartiles (Q) based on BL titer. Q1–Q4 represent increasing
titers of anti-CCP2 antibody. Efficacy outcomes analyzed by Q were: mean
change from BL in DAS28 (CRP) and HAQ-DI over time, and remission rates in
terms of CDAI, SDAI, and DAS28 [CRP] <2.6-defined remission. Mean change from BL was determined by analysis of covariance, with treatment and DAS28 (CRP)
stratification as factors, and BL values as a covariate. Data are also
presented for change from BL in DAS28 (CRP) over time in pts who were anti-CCP2 antibody negative at
were 97 pts per Q. The numbers of pts per treatment group in each Q were (ABA,
ADA): Q1=42, 55; Q2=51, 46; Q3=46, 51; Q4=46, 51. Overall BL
characteristics were generally comparable, with no discernible pattern across
Qs and treatment groups. For example, pts in ABA Q4 and ADA Q2 had numerically
higher DAS28 (CRP) but lower HAQ-DI scores than pts in other Qs. For ABA, mean improvements from BL in DAS28 (CRP) and HAQ-DI
were greater in the highest titer anti-CCP2 Q compared with the other Qs. The
95% CI of these measures for the highest and lowest titer Q did not overlap. There
was no apparent association between these efficacy measures and BL anti-CCP2 titer
in the ADA group. Adjusted mean change from
BL in DAS28 (CRP) over time by BL anti-CCP2 Q, including pts anti-CCP2 negative
at BL, is shown in the Figure. Reductions in DAS28 (CRP) and HAQ-DI by Year 2 were
generally comparable in Q1–3 in both ABA and ADA groups. Remission rates
across all indices were broadly similar in ABA and ADA groups in Q1–3, but were
numerically greater in Q4 compared with Q1–3 in the ABA group only.
titer anti-CCP2 antibody at BL is correlated with better efficacy in pts from
the AMPLE study treated with abatacept, but not with adalimumab.5
