Baricitinib and Rheumatoid Nodules

Effect on Rheumatoid Nodules

An analysis of the effect of BARI treatment on rheumatoid nodules has not been conducted within the BARI clinical development program.1

Comorbid Rheumatoid Nodules

In the 4 phase 3 BARI clinical trials in patients with RA, 6 patients treated with BARI had a recorded preexisting condition or historical diagnosis of rheumatoid nodules or rheumatoid nodule removal.1

Incidence of Rheumatoid Nodules

New or worsening of rheumatoid nodules is not an adverse event listed in the summary of product characteristics.2

The All BARI RA analysis set included 3770 patients with RA who received BARI at a variety of doses from 1 phase 1, 3 phase 2, and 5 phase 3 studies (RA-BEGIN, RA-BEAM, RA-BUILD, RA-BEACON, RA-BALANCE). Data includes a long-term extension study (RA-BEYOND) with

  • 13,148 PYE,

  • median exposure of 4.2 years,

  • maximum exposure of 8.4 years, and

  • data through 01 September 2019.3,4

In the All BARI RA analysis, 14 patients (0.4%; EAIR=0.1) had a reported TEAE of new or worsening rheumatoid nodules.1 Of the 14 events

  • 1 was reported as a SAE

  • 1 led to temporary treatment interruption, and

  • 1 led to treatment discontinuation.1

The SAE was in an elderly patient diagnosed with RA more than 30 years prior to the event. The patient had bilateral rheumatoid nodules, one of which was infected and surgery for removal was elected by the patient. Baricitinib was temporarily interrupted and resumed once the infection resolved.1
