Synovial fibroblasts as potential drug targets in rheumatoid arthritis, where do we stand and where shall we go?

Ann Rheum Dis 2022 Jun 17. Epub 2022 Jun 17.

Institute of Musculoskeletal Medicine, Medical Faculty of the Westphalian Wilhelm University, Münster, Germany.

Fibroblast-like synoviocytes or synovial fibroblasts (FLS) are important cellular components of the inner layer of the joint capsule, referred to as the synovial membrane. They can be found in both layers of this synovial membrane and contribute to normal joint function by producing extracellular matrix components and lubricants. However, under inflammatory conditions like in rheumatoid arthritis (RA), they may start to proliferate, undergo phenotypical changes and become central elements in the perpetuation of inflammation through their direct and indirect destructive functions.

Use of pragmatic and explanatory trial designs in acute care research: lessons from COVID-19.

Lancet Respir Med 2022 Jul 13;10(7):700-714. Epub 2022 Jun 13.

Department of Emergency Medicine, Vanderbilt University Medical Center, Nashville, TN, USA; Geriatric Research, Education,and Clinical Center, Tennessee Valley Healthcare System, Nashville, TN, USA.

Unique challenges arise when conducting trials to evaluate therapies already in common clinical use, including difficulty enrolling patients owing to widespread open-label use of trial therapies and the need for large sample sizes to detect small but clinically meaningful treatment effects. Despite numerous successes in trials evaluating novel interventions such as vaccines, traditional explanatory trials have struggled to provide definitive answers to time-sensitive questions for acutely ill patients with COVID-19. Pragmatic trials, which can increase efficiency by allowing some or all trial procedures to be embedded into clinical care, are increasingly proposed as a means to evaluate therapies that are in common clinical use.
