A recent study indicated that among participants with rheumatoid arthritis, all autoantibodies followed a similar trajectory, with an early initial elevation, a period of stability, and an immediate increase pre-RA diagnosis.
For patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA), using conventional synthetic disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (csDMARDs) concomitantly with biologic DMARDs (bDMARDs) is associated with a significantly reduced risk for bDMARD discontinuation because of adverse events (AEs), according to results published in the Journal of Rheumatology. The study included participants from the Ontario Best Practices Research Initiative (OBRI) who…
Researchers found that in patients with a first-degree relative with rheumatoid arthritis, the antibodies to citrullinated protein/peptide antigens indicate an association with aging for those aged 50 or older and rheumatoid arthritis pathogenesis.
Baseline disease characteristics and early disease activity in patients with rheumatoid arthritis can predict response to methotrexate treatment and radiographic progression at 6 months.
