In addition, older age and specific comorbidities that are relatively prevalent in the RA population, such as diabetes mellitus or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), have been associated with an increased risk of SIEs during anti-TNF therapy. Concomitant treatment with systemic glucocorticoids has also been linked to an increased susceptibility to infection. In clinical practice, physicians have to balance the benefits of the different available treatments against their overall risk, as well as the risks associated with the characteristics of each patient. This often involves the complex task of extrapolating data from study populations to the individual patient level. Infection risk scores, which summarize the relative contributions of various patient characteristics in a single composite measure, may help clinicians to anticipate the potential risk of SIEs in individual patients and make better-informed treatment decisions when balancing the expected therapeutic risks and benefits for an individual patient.
