Ankylosing spondylitis (AS) is a form of rheumatic disease caused by chronic inflammation of the axial skeleton involving the sacroiliac joints and spine. 1 A recent study reported an increase in the prevalence of AS from 0.04% to 0.09% of the U.S. population from 2006 to 2016, with a larger proportion of males affected compared with females. 2 Patients with AS often experience symptoms such. Background Secukinumab was the IL-17 inhibitor licensed for use in Psoriatic Arthritis (PsA) and Ankylosing Spondylitis (AS).

In this study, 37 patients with moderate-to-severe ankylosing spondylitis were screened, and 30 were randomly assigned to receive either intravenous secukinumab (n=24) or placebo (n=6). The final efficacy analysis included 23 patients receiving secukinumab and six patients receiving placebo, and the safety analysis included all 30 patients Ankylosing spondylitis (AS) is a condition where the joints in the spine become inflamed because of over-activity in the immune system, causing pain and reducing flexibility Secukinumab is a human monoclonal antibody that works by blocking the activity of interleukin 17A, which is involved in ankylosing spondylitis, reducing the activity of the immune system and the symptoms of the disease.

Healthcare professionals in non-specialist settings frequently fail to recognise signs and symptoms of spondyloarthritis. Axial presentations of spondyloarthritis are often misdiagnosed as mechanical low back pain, leading to delays in access to effective treatments. There is an average delay of 8.5 years between symptom onset and diagnosis. In psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis and axial spondyloarthritis (ankylosing spondylitis and non-radiographic axial spondyloarthritis) clinical studies, less than 1% of patients treated with secukinumab developed antibodies to secukinumab up to 52 weeks of treatment Secukinumab, also known by the brand name Cosentyx, is already given to patients suffering from ankylosing spondylitis. Studies showed that 45 per cent of patients on secukinumab saw a significant improvement in symptoms, including reduced pain and stiffness, after 16 weeks of treatment In clinical trials, secukinumab has been shown to significantly decrease the activity of skin lesions in patients with psoriasis, decrease tender and swollen joints in patients with psoriatic arthritis, and decrease axial pain and limitation in patients with ankylosing spondylitis. 47,48 Clinical responses to secukinumab in patients with RA.

Introduction. Ankylosing spondylitis (AS) is a chronic, systemic, inflammatory disease that affects primarily the sacroiliac joints and spine and leads to back pain, stiffness, discomfort, fatigue, impaired spinal mobility, and postural abnormalities. 1 AS can also inflame peripheral joints and entheses 2 and has extra-articular manifestation. 3 The New York classification criteria for AS.

Ankylosing spondylitis (AS) is a chronic inflammatory condition (a member of the spondyloarthropathies) affecting the spine, sacroiliac joints and peripheral joints, causing pain, stiffness and disability.
