Spondyloarthritis is a type of inflammatory disease that impacts the vertebral column. It comprises a group of inflammatory rheumatic diseases that is characterized by spinal and peripheral joint oligoarthritis and enthesitis and may be associated with mucocutaneous, ocular, and/or cardiac comorbidities.
There is an unmet need when it comes to therapies that can address both disease-related parameters and radiographic progression of spondyloarthritis.
Dr. Stuart Mair contributed to a peer-reviewed scientific article in Arthritis Research & Therapy with BioMed Central (BMC). The study, led by Bristol Meyers Squibb and its researchers, reviews a Phase I clinical trial to assess the safety and tolerability of the MK2 inhibitor CC-99677, a potential new treatment for ankylosing spondylitis (AS) and related conditions.
