Quotes

...Although there are "a number of biologically plausible mechanisms between polymyalgia rheumatica and vascular disease" studies that have investigated a potential association have been small or have not been of good quality
"We observed a significantly greater ACR20 response with brodalumab than with placebo at week 12. Additionally, during open-label extension beyond 12 weeks, all responses further improved. Although open-label data are not as fully reliable as placebo-controlled data, the consistency and magnitude of the improvement across measures, generally maintained out to 52 weeks, raises the possibility that the drug takes longer to achieve fully optimal responses. The week 12 primary endpoint time point for arthritis/enthesitis/dactylitis responses was chosen a priori partly based on the rapidity and magnitude of the skin responses in the psoriasis trials with this agent. In phase 3, a later primary endpoint of 16 weeks has been chosen to see if optimal response can be observed during placebo-controlled phase" Dr. Mease, who is a rheumatologist at Swedish Medical Center and the University of Washington, Seattle, Washington, told Medscape Medical News
...to the comprehensive and high quality work that our team has executed," said Gaetano Scuderi, MD, President and Founder of Cytonics Corporation.  "Cytonics' accomplishments in the scientific, intellectual property, regulatory, and now clinical aspects of A2M have positioned Cytonics to bring this important new molecular treatment for degenerative cartilage to the clinic and the market."
"However, there are few robust studies investigating weather and pain, specifically research that does not rely on patient recall of the weather" Steffens said
