The duration of RA as a risk factor for ILD was assessed, and whether the duration of RA and age correlated with a radiologic pattern of nonspecific interstitial pneumonia (NSIP) or usual interstitial pneumonia (UIP) was examined.
Links between sleep duration and CV health in patients with early RA were assessed and the potential CV benefit of replacing sleep with other activities ranging from sedentary behavior to vigorous physical activity was examined.
Propensity matching was used to examine the association between statin use and mortality in a large sample of patients with RA in the US.
The effectiveness of MBDA scores, compared with the DAS28-ESR and CDAI, in measuring RA disease activity in patients enrolled in a clinical trial of RCI, a short-term adjunctive treatment for patients with active RA, is assessed
The 10-year tolerability profile of glucocorticoid use in RA patients starting early in the course of their disease was studied.
