The investigational JAK1* inhibitor filgotinib was noninferior to adalimumab in reducing disease activity in patients with moderate-to-severe rheumatoid arthritis (RA) who had inadequate response to methotrexate (MTX-IR), according to the FINCH 1 study presented at EULAR 2020 Virtual Meeting.
Upadacitinib may be a suitable treatment for patients with active psoriatic arthritis (PsA) who have insufficient response to non-biologic disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs (non-bDMARDs), according to results of the phase III SELECT-PsA-1* trial presented at EULAR 2020.

Patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) treated with tumour necrosis factor (TNF) inhibitors may have a reduced risk of venous thromboembolism (VTE) compared with those treated with conventional synthetic disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (csDMARDs), according to an observational study presented at EULAR 2020.
