OBJECTIVES: Effective management of axial spondyloarthritis (axSpA)-related fatigue is a major unmet clinical need. Anti-TNF therapy may reduce fatigue levels, although any effect has yet to be definitively quantified and predictors of any such improvements are unknown. METHODS: The British Society of Rheumatology Register in Axial Spondyloarthritis (BSRBR-AS) prospectively recruited axSpA patients across the UK. Changes in fatigue levels (measured using the Chalder Fatigue Scale) >1 year were c...

Management guidelines assume that results from clinical trials can be generalised, although seldom is data available to test this assumption. We aimed to determine the proportion of patients commencing tumour necrosis factor inhibition (TNFi) who would have been eligible for relevant clinical trials, and whether treatment response differs between these groups and the trials themselves. The British Society for Rheumatology Biologics Register for Ankylosing Spondylitis (BSRBR-AS) recruited a real-...

Abstract Background Opioids have, at most, small benefits for non-cancer pain in the medium and long-term but there is good evidence that they cause harm. The current study describes the characteristics and clinical status of people taking regular opioids in Great Britain and determines whether use is associated with mortality risk. Methods An analysis of participants in UK Biobank, a prospective population-based study. At recruitment (2006–10) participants reported medicines which they regularl...

Fibromyalgia is a common and complex long-term pain condition. Despite advancements in our understanding and treatment of fibromyalgia, patients report patchy healthcare provision and frustrating journeys through the healthcare system. To inform how best to deliver care, we undertook two narrative reviews examining existing evidence on a) models of care for fibromyalgia and b) patients' experiences, preferences and unmet needs regarding their healthcare. Seven databases were systematically searc...

OBJECTIVES: To assess whether clinical and patient-reported outcomes are poorer for people with inflammatory and non-inflammatory rheumatic diseases living in rural locations. METHODS: We searched six databases for articles which were primary peer-reviewed research, published in English 1990-2019, which focussed on selected rheumatic diseases (rheumatoid arthritis (RA), psoriatic arthritis (PsA), axial spondyloarthritis (axSpA) or osteoarthritis (OA)), and quantified either patient-reported or c...

Objective To determine modifiable factors associated with poor quality of life (QoL) in patients with axial spondyloarthritis (axSpA). Methods Analysis of data from the British Society for Rheumatology Biologics Register in Ankylosing Spondylitis (BSRBR-AS) and validation of a previous model using data from 1810 patients with axSpA recruited during 2012–2017. Data collected included clinical and patient-reported measures. QoL was assessed using the Ankylosing Spondylitis Quality of Life (ASQoL) ...
