Brief Summary:
To validate the utility of survivin as a biomarker of pharmacological response to therapeutic intervention in rheumatoid arthritis patients.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Rheumatoid Arthritis Drug: methotrexate Drug: sulfasalazine Drug: abatacept Drug: tocilizumab Drug: tofacitinib/baricitinib

Detailed Description:
In a prospective observational study the investigators aim to study the ability of modern antirheumatic treatments to suppress levels of survivin in sera. Rheumatoid arthritis patients scheduled to start new pharmacological treatment will be followed for a period of 6 months. No intervention or influence on choice of treatment will be performed, the decision of new/other medication is entirely made by the patient and their rheumatologist. The study entails addition of survivin analyse (1 vial of sera) before and after start of new treatment. Data concerning survivin levels, disease activity and other clinical parameters before and after start of new treatment will also be analysed. The patients will leave sera for survivin analyse at baseline and 3 and 6 months after start of new treatment.

Group/Cohort Intervention/treatment
1 Drug: methotrexate
folate antagonist

Drug: sulfasalazine
Immunomodulatory
Other Name: Salazopyrin

Drug: abatacept
Targeting CTLA-4 (fusion protein composed of the Fc region of the immunoglobulin IgG1 fused to the extracellular domain of CTLA-4)
Other Name: Orencia

Drug: tocilizumab
IL-6 receptor antagonist
Other Name: RoActemra

Drug: tofacitinib/baricitinib
JAK inhibitor
Other Name: Xeljanz/Olumiant




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Survivin status [ Time Frame: 6 months ]

    Patients with a survivin level of over 0.45 ng/ml are considered to be survivin positive.

    Patients with survivin levels under 0.45 ng/ml are considered to be survivin negative

    A change from survivin positive to survivin negative (or vice versa) equals conversion of survivin status.



Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Disease activity (DAS28) [ Time Frame: 6 months ]

    Disease activity, DAS28, is calculated using a specific formula based on:

    • number of painful joints from 28 joints
    • number of swollen joints from 28 joints
    • erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) or C reactive protein (CRP)
    • patient's global assessment of disease activity on a 100 mm visual analogue scale (VAS)

    DAS thresholds:

    DAS28 below 3.2: low disease activity DAS28 over 3.2 and under 5.1: moderate disease activity DAS28 above 5.1: high disease activity DAS28 lower than 2.6: remission


  2. Response to treatment [ Time Frame: 6 months ]

    The EULAR response criteria classify patients as good, moderate, or non-responders, using the change in DAS28 and the level of DAS28 reached. A patient must show a significant change as well as low disease activity to be classified as a good responder.

    Good responder: DAS28 scores ≤ 3.2 with reductions in DAS28 >1.2 Moderate responder: DAS28 scores > 3.2 with reductions in DAS28 >1.2 Non-responder: reductions in DAS28 ≤ 0.6
