Real-Life Golimumab Persitence in Patients with Axial Spondyloarthritis: Post-Hoc Results of the Prospective Observational Cohort Study, GO-PRACTICE

Abstract

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate in clinical practice the persistence and safety of golimumab, together with the evolution of disease activity and patient reported outcomes, in adult patients with rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis and axial spondyloarthritis (axSpA). This article focuses on the outcomes of golimumab treatment in axSpA patients. METHODS: Golimumab persistence 24 months after initial prescription (primary outcome) was assessed using Kaplan-Meier estimates. Secondary outcomes included evaluations of disease activity evolution (ASDAS and BASDAI), patient-reported outcomes (EQ-5D, SF-12 and HAQ), and golimumab's safety profile. RESULTS: Of 478 axSpA patients, 60.9% were biologic-na\"ive. Mean age and proportion of females were higher in biologics-pretreated patients (46.8 vs. 40.2 years, p<0.001 and 62.0% vs. 49.8%, p=0.009, respectively). Golimumab persistence at 24 months was 52.6% [95% CI 47.9-57.1%] in the axSpA cohort. It was 59.2% [95% CI 53.1-64.8%] and 42.7% [95% CI 35.3-49.8%] respectively, for biologics-na\"ive and biologics-pretreated patients (p<0.01), and 65.9% [95% CI 58.9-72.0%] and 41.5% [95% CI 35.2-47.6%], respectively for males and females (p<0.01). Reasons for golimumab discontinuation were primary non-response (37.4%), secondary non-response (24.8%) and intolerance (21.5%). Disease activity and patient reported outcomes improved significantly for those who persisted at 24 months and were higher for biologics-na\"ive patients. CONCLUSIONS: Golimumab persistence at 2 years in axSpA patients was 52.6%. Previous treatment with another biologic and female gender were associated with earlier discontinuation. Golimumab was a well-tolerated therapy for axSpA, with no new safety signals observed.
