August 29th, 2019 · Comments

This week I tackle an interesting cohort study that Jack Cush (@RheumNow) mentioned in his podcast.  It's a nice opportunity to discuss bDMARDs in the "real world" (AKA Sweden).  Follow me @ebrheum and let me know what you think of the episode!

E44: SELECT-COMPARE Upadacitinib (JAKi) for Rheumatoid Arthritis

August 15th, 2019 · Comments

Finally got around to tackling the JAKi this week.  I decided to focus on SELECT-COMPARE, which pitted upadacitinib (selective JAK1 inhibitor) against adalimumab and placebo.  I briefly discuss other JAKs and my thoughts on the future of this area. Get the paper and others at and follow me @ebrheum!
