Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is the most common autoimmune inflammatory arthritis in adults. Studies show that people who receive early treatment for RA feel better sooner and more often, and are more likely to lead an active life. They also are less likely to have the type of joint damage that leads to joint replacement. In this resource center, explore The Rheumatologist’s collection of research reviews, case reports and clinical articles on advances in the diagnosis and management of RA. New features are added often, so check back frequently.
Plus, a vast repository of new research related to RA was presented to participants during ACR Convergence 2020. To help you sort through the noise, Elizabeth (Blair) Solow, MD, an assistant professor of medicine in the Division of Rheumatic Diseases at UT Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, reviewed the abstracts and presents her picks for the top research in RA.
