    E71: MTX Discontinuation Post... Influenza Vaccination

    E71: MTX Discontinuation Post... Influenza Vaccination

    I stole some time to tackle a pressing issue for rheumatologists - to hold or not to hold immunosuppression in patients who are receiving a COVID19 vaccination.  We obviously don't have any data on this, but I have always loved this study on influenza vaccination.  PDFs at ebrheum.com/twts and follow me on twitter @ebrheum!

    We have a great show for you this week!  Anisha Dua will be moderating a debate between myself and Max Konig on this motion: "Hydroxychloroquine levels should be monitored in patients with SLE."  I learned a ton and thoroughly enjoyed it.  Be sure to vote on the post-debate twitter poll to decide the winner!

    E69: Publication Trends in SRMAs and RCTs

    This week I cover another of my meta-research projects, this one on systematic review and meta analysis (SRMA) growth as compared to randomized clinical trial (RCT) growth.  Short and to the point - hope you enjoy! I highly recommend checking out the associated graphs - just take a quick peek at some point while listening. Find them on my twitter handle @ebrheum

    E68: SELECT-CHOICE Upadacitinib vs Abatacept in RA

    Active comparator trial! Always my favorite.  Lots of fun topics in this one, including noninferiority trials, crafty endpoints, and PROs.  Check it out and let me know what you think! @ebrheum

    E67: Belimumab in Lupus Nephritis (BLISS-LN)

    E67: Belimumab in Lupus Nephritis (BLISS-LN)

    Another day, another lupus trial, another round of endpoint shenanigans.  Why does that matter? How big is the benefit from belimumab in SLE nephritis? Will this save lives and prevent ESRD / RRT? I try to tackle these issues this week and (hopefully) avoid getting myself in trouble.  Hope you enjoy the episode!  Let me know what you think @ebrheum on twitter!
