Session Type: ACR Poster Session A
Session Time: 9:00AM-11:00AM
Background/Purpose: Abatacept, a selective T-cell co-stimulation modulator, significantly increased ACR20 response and had an overall beneficial effect on musculoskeletal symptoms in patients with active psoriatic arthritis (PsA) in the Phase III Active pSoriaTic athRitis rAndomizEd triAl (ASTRAEA, NCT01860976).1 Factors that may predict responses to abatacept were explored in this post hoc analysis. The aim of this study was to evaluate the relationship between baseline characteristics and abatacept response in a post hoc analysis of ASTRAEA.
Results: Of 424 patients enrolled, 213 received abatacept and 211 placebo.In the univariate model by poor prognostic factors, the differences in ACR20 response rates with abatacept treatment vs placebo in distinct subgroups were numerically greater in patients who were positive for these prognostic factors at baseline than in those who were not (Figure).
Conclusion: These findings identified subgroups of patients with PsA with certain baseline characteristics in whom abatacept is most likely to be effective. The predictive factors identified are aligned with poor prognostic factors in the EULAR and Group for Research and Assessment of Psoriasis and Psoriatic Arthritis (GRAPPA) guidelines,2,3 and may indicate patients with the highest unmet medical need.
