RheumatologyNetwork Presents RA Findings from ACR Annual Meeting
Date:12/3/2013

NORWALK, Conn., Dec. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- UBM Medica US announces two new videos on RheumatologyNetwork, the leading online community for rheumatologists,  describing startling findings about rheumatoid arthritis, an autoimmune condition that affects about 1.3 million adults in the United States.

Despite dramatic advances in new drugs for rheumatoid arthritis (RA) treatment, according to research presented at the recent American College of Rheumatology annual meeting in San Diego (and recounted in the videos):

  • Many patients continue to experience considerable pain months after treatment with the new biologic drugs has started, even though their doctors may think that treatment has been successful because inflammation has been reduced
  • Urged by national guidelines to begin treatment for rheumatoid arthritis as soon as possible because the new medications are so successful, some doctors run the risk of initiating treatment for patients who would recover spontaneously.

Research from the Karolinska University Hospital in Sweden, described in the video "Big Flaw in RA Treatment Success Record: Remaining Pain" by Karolinska rheumatologist Jon Lampa, tracked records from more than 8000 RA patients and controls in a Swedish database and found that many continued to have pain three months after beginning treatment.  It's important for doctors
