Abstract

Background: The risk of some types of malignancy is increased in patients (pts) with rheumatoid arthritis (RA), compared with the general population. We have previously reported the incidence of malignancy in Japanese pts with RA.1-4

Objectives: This analysis further evaluated the incidence of malignancy in Japanese pts with RA using recent data from the large prospective observational study, IORRA.

Methods: This analysis included all pts with RA aged ≥18 years who were enrolled in IORRA from April 2013 to October 2018, with follow-up through October 2019, and participated in ≥2 surveys. Index was defined as the date of the first entry in the IORRA database, with baseline defined as the 6-month period prior to the index date. Malignancies were identified in pt reports of biannual IORRA surveys and confirmed using medical records. Age- and sex-standardised incidence ratios (SIRs) and 95% confidence intervals (CIs) were calculated.

Results: In total, 8020 pts were included. At baseline, the majority (85.0%) of pts were female; mean disease duration was 12.8 years, 5.8% and 4.8% of pts had a past history of malignancy or comorbid malignancy at baseline, respectively, and the majority (75.9%) of pts were receiving methotrexate (Table). The SIR (95% CI) was 0.90 (0.80, 1.01). SIRs (95% CI) of site-specific malignancies were: breast cancer, 0.91 (0.69, 1.18); lung cancer, 0.67 (0.44, 0.97); colon cancer, 0.93 (0.62, 1.32); stomach cancer, 0.82 (0.56, 1.14); and lymphoma, 3.74 (2.73, 4.96).

Patient demographics and baseline disease characteristics

Conclusion: Overall risk of malignancy was similar to that in the general Japanese population, although a significantly higher risk of lymphoma was identified.
