Authors' objectives: To compare the efficacy and safety of different anti-TNF in adult patients with active AS who are naïve to biological therapies.
Authors' recomendations: In adult patients with active AS, no significant differences are observed between the efficacy of treatments with infliximab, etanercept, adalimumab, and golimumab in terms of BASDAI50 index and ASAS20 results. There are no significant differences in safety between the four anti-TNF in terms of the incidence of severe infections and withdrawals of treatment due to adverse effects.
