Is switching first-line targeted therapy for rheumatoid arthritis within 6 months of not reaching disease remission better than a traditional approach?

This study investigated whether switching a first-line targeted therapy (TT) within 6 months of not attaining low disease activity (LDA) enhances the chance of patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) achieving their target at the 12-month visit. The data showed an increased chance of achieving a target of remission or LDA at the 12-month visit with a TT switch within 6 months.

Could patient-reported outcomes predict survival benefits in patients with advanced breast cancer treated with abemaciclib?

This study evaluated the association between patient-reported outcomes (PROs) and survival outcomes in patients with hormone receptor-positive (HR+)/HER2-negative (HER2-) advanced breast cancer (BC) treated with abemaciclib (Verzenio).
