For further information and caveats, see relevant recommendations and main text in executive summary and full guideline. Per the manufacturer’s recommendation, pregnancy should be delayed by a minimum of 3 months after a man has been on methotrexate (see the Methotrexate Prescription Insert available at http://www.rheumatrex.info/pdf/RheumatrexPackageInsert.pdf). (2) Localized or systemic infections. There is conflicting data regarding the effects of TNFα in in vivo models of spermatogenesis. June 2017. (, Pendergraft, W., Mcgrath, M., Murphy, A., Murphy, P., Laliberte, K., Greene, M.. (, Rahimi, R., Nikfar, S., Rezaie, A., Abdollahi, M. (, Rubbert-Roth, A., Goupille, P., Moosavi, S., Hou, A. Counselling the mother on the low risk of fetal oral clefts with first trimester exposure is reasonable. M 2010]. Two patients continued therapy past the first trimester with one continuing for the entire pregnancy. L2 1992]. Prednisolone is compatible with each trimester of pregnancy [level of evidence (LOE) 1 ++, grade of recommendation (GOR) A, strength of agreement (SOA) 100%]. DMARDs should be initiated by hospital specialists only and should not be initiated in the Primary Care setting. In review of the FDA database up until December 2005 [Carter et al. Based on limited evidence, RTX is compatible with paternal exposure (LOE 2−, GOR D, SOA 98.4%). 6. Summary of DMARDs covered in this guideline and information on whether they require routine monitoring or not. Østensen In one case series, two patients received rituximab during their pregnancy with normal resulting pregnancies [Ojeda-Uribe et al. However, higher rates of poor motility and viability were noted in those not receiving TNFα inhibitor therapy [Villiger et al. 2012 update of the 2008 American College of Rheumatology recommendations for the use of disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs and biologic agents in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, Systematic review of hydroxychloroquine use in pregnant patients with autoimmune diseases, Tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha) promotes cell survival during spermatogenesis, and this effect can be blocked by infliximab, a TNF-alpha antagonist, Psoriasis, Methotrexate, and Oligospermia, Cyclooxygenase-2 inhibitors constrict the fetal lamb ductus arteriosus both in vitro and in vivo, Antirheumatic drugs in pregnancy and lactation, Case report: evidence for transplacental transfer of maternally administered infliximab to the newborn, Effects of TNF antagonists on sperm characteristics in patients with spondyloarthritis, Induced abortions in women with rheumatoid arthritis receiving methotrexate, SAGE Publications Ltd unless otherwise noted. Therefore, unintentional RTX exposure early in the first trimester is unlikely to be harmful (LOE 2−, GOR D, SOA 97.9%). In one systematic review of 472 pregnancies (194 infliximab, 261 adalimumab, 17 certolizumab), the rates of spontaneous abortions and congenital anomalies were similar to the US general population [Marchioni and Lichtenstein, 2013]. There are reports suggesting that GCs use during pregnancy may increase the risk for cleft lip, but not other major congenital anomalies. 2010]. 2005]. 2004], 28 pregnancies were identified with exposure to methotrexate with 26 of 28 stopping it prior to 8 weeks gestation. There was no demonstrable difference in sperm measurements among those treated with TNFα compared with healthy controls. G. Notable drug interactions (refer to BNF and SPC) (1) Antacids: Containing aluminium and magnesium hydroxide cause a decrease in the absorption of MMF by 33% and bioavailability by 17%. 2012]. Based on a systematic literature review and pregnancy exposure data from several registries, statements on the compatibility of antirheumatic drugs during pregnancy and lactation were developed. MTX cannot be recommended in breastfeeding because of theoretical risks and insufficient outcome data (LOE 4, GOR D, SOA 100%).

This may be related to maternal disease rather than hydroxychloroquine exposure. Labor and delivery can be equated to moderate medical or surgical stress, and it has been recommended that in women on GCs through their pregnancy, a stress dose of hydrocortisone (50–75 mg) or methylprednisolone (10–15 mg) be given on the day of the procedure and quickly tapered over 1–2 days [Rosandich et al.

There were three cases of spontaneous abortions and three voluntary abortions. Despite this FDA category, its demonstrated safety in human studies has made it a safer option for use in pregnancy. As a category, TNFα inhibitors are considered category B primarily due to the absence of risk in animal studies (see the Adalimumab Prescription Insert at }http://www.fda.gov/downloads/Drugs/DevelopmentApprovalProcess/HowDrugsareDevelopedandApproved/ApprovalApplications/TherapeuticBiologicApplications/ucm092762.pdf, Certolizumab Prescription Insert at http://www.cimzia.com/pdf/prescribing_information.pdf, Etanercept Prescription Insert at http://www.accessdata.fda.gov/drugsatfda_docs/label/2003/etanimm060503LB.pdf, Golimumab Prescription Insert at http://www.simponi.com/shared/product/simponi/prescribing-information.pdf, and Infliximab Prescription Insert at http://www.remicade.com/shared/product/remicade/prescribing-information.pdf). Male patients with RA should be counseled regarding this uncertainty. 2002]. MEDLINE, EMBASE and the Cochrane Library were searched for original studies published in English between 1990 and 2004; the search terms were reported. 2009].

Results for DMARD pregnancy 121 - 160 of 170 sorted by relevance / date. There has been conflicting data regarding association between GC use and prematurity and low birth weight [Ostensen and Forger, 2009]. Little data is available about the safety of RA medications during breastfeeding (Table 2). Animal studies saw no increased risk when exposed to the maximum recommended human dose; however, at extremely elevated doses there were alterations in immune function noted (see the Abatacept Prescription Insert http://packageinserts.bms.com/pi/pi_orencia.pdf). This review provides evidence-based recommendations for use of disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs) and biologic response modifiers to guide rheumatologists in their care of pregnant and lactating women with RA and serves as a guide to counsel male patients with RA on family planning decisions.
