EULAR has released recommendations to enable health professionals to provide knowledgeable pain management support for patients with inflammatory arthritis and osteoarthritis.
Patients with RA who were treated in the first 6 months had a lower risk of death.
For every 5 patients with RAs displaying improved disease activity scores or remission by clinical criteria, 2 will exhibit disease progression on MRI.
The first evidence-based recommendations on the use of imaging in osteoarthritis clinical practice have been released by the European League Against Rheumatism.
EULAR recommendations were updated for rheumatoid arthritis management to include new guidelines on starting effective therapy in patients early.
Much of the disability associated with RA relates to the pain secondary to inflammatory joint inflammation.
