E42: SENSCIS - Nintedanib for Systemic Sclerosis ILD

July 25th, 2019 · Comments

This week I'll discuss an important paper in systemic sclerosis, the recent SENSCIS trial that compared 150mg nitedanib to placebo.  I wind up coming down pretty hard on this drug; I think it's hype has vastly outpaced its utility. Get the paper itself at ebrheum.com and follow me on @ebrheum to give feedback!

E41: Rheum4Debate “SLE Pts. on Cytoxan Should Receive Bactrim”

July 18th, 2019 · Comments

Welcome back!  This is the second episode of Rheum4Debate, an oxford-style debate show for the field of rheumatology.  In this podcast we'll tackle the question of bactrim prophylaxis in patients receiving cyclophosphamide.  The motion was: 

“Bactrim prophylaxis should be prescribed to all patients with SLE who are receiving cytoxan and over 20mg of prednisone daily”

Dr. Pankti Reid (@panktireid) argued FOR the motion and Dr. Anisha Dua (@anisha_dua) argued AGAINST the motion. 

PLEASE be sure to fill out the post debate poll and let us know what you think! You can find it on my twitter account @ebrheum!
