Press Conferences

Osteoarthritis and Bone Unintended Consequences: Increased Prescription of Narcotic Analgesics for OA in the Elderly is Associated with Increased Falls and Fractures in the Post-Vioxx Era
Lydia Rolita, MD and Bruce N. Cronstein, MD
Monday, November 7 at 8:30AM
Following the removal of Vioxx from the market there was a marked increase in the prescription of narcotic analgesics. Subsequently, the number of falls and fractures among the elderly population with osteoarthritis also went up which was attributed to patients prescribed narcotic analgesics. The findings strongly indicate that recommendations for the treatment of chronic pain be re-evaluated.

Lupus, Gout and Vaccines Favorable Prognosis in a Large, Prospective Multicenter Study of Lupus Pregnancies
Jill P. Buyon, MD
Tuesday, November 8 at 8:30AM
A study of pregnant women with systemic lupus erythematosus found eighty percent (80%) of women had positive outcomes, with adverse outcomes associated with an increase in lupus activity during pregnancy, high titer aPL antibody, and higher levels of uric acid at baseline. This large, prospective study provides reassurances to those patients with stable lupus considering pregnancy and suggests guidelines for those at-risk patients.

Presentations, Demonstrations & Panel Discussion

A Distinctive Oral Microbiome Characterizes Periodontitis in Patients with Early Rheumatoid Arthritis
Jose U. Scher, MD
Tuesday, November 8 at 4:45PM
This presentation investigates the abundance of a unique subgingival oral microbiota in patients with new-onset, never-treated rheumatoid arthritis, compared to those with chronic-established RA and healthy individuals. The study suggests that further identification and characterization of Porphyromonas species as well as other bacteria may help explain the reported link between RA and periodontal disease.

Successes in Rheumatology Comparative Effectiveness Research Registries/Cohorts That Have Made a Difference in Rheumatology
Jeffrey Greenberg, MPH, MD
Saturday, November 5 at 3:00PM
This presentation highlights the value of comparative effectiveness research and how it enables the evaluation and comparison of the health outcomes, risks and benefits of established, commonly used treatments without the expense and limitations of randomized, controlled clinical trials.

ACR State of the Art Lecture Biomarkers in Systemic Lupus Erythematosus: Where Do We Stand?
Jill P. Buyon, MD and Anca D. Askanase, MD
Monday November 7 at 1:00PM
This lecture will provide an understanding of the ongoing efforts to identify and validate biomarkers needed to advance the diagnosis, monitoring and treatment of systemic lupus erythematosus.

Rheumatic Disease Update Paraneoplastic Rheumatic Disorders
Yusef Yazici, MD
Monday, November 7 at 2:30PM
The presentation will look at rheumatologic disorders known to be associated with a variety of malignancies and the challenge clinicians' face in identifying a malignancy that may not be apparent when rheumatic disease first appears.

Leveraging Existing Resources for Your Research Introduction to the Clinical and Translational Science Award
Bruce N. Cronstein, MD
Monday, November 7 at 4:30PM
This session will introduce early career investigators to CTSA research resources and alternatives when a CTSA center is not available.

ACR Clinical Symposia Hyperuricemia and Gout: Mechanisms and Morbidity
Michael H. Pillinger, MD
Tuesday, November 8 at 1:00PM
This discussion offers clinicians an update on recent findings on the pathogenesis and consequences of hyperuricemia and gout, one of the most common forms of inflammatory arthritis in men over the age of 50.

ACR Workshops - Patient Questionnaires to Monitor Status and Document Improvement in Standard Care: Practical Considerations
Theodore Pincus, MD
Tuesday, November 8 at 4:00PM
During this workshop, attendees will learn about the significance of patient questionnaire data in the prognosis of long-term care, how a rheumatology practice can use patient questionnaires to monitor and document patient status, identify incomplete responses to therapies or a need for changes in tight control of inflammation.
