NORWALK, Conn., July 31, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- UBM Medica US announces that Rheumatology Network, a leading online community for Rheumatologists, offers special coverage of the first joint meeting of two societies dedicated to related forms of arthritis, collectively known as spondyloarthritis.
Spondyloarthritis is an important and treatable cause of chronic back pain. Psoriatic arthritis, which causes inflammation of the joints often including the lower back, arises in about 10% of patients with the skin condition psoriasis, affecting more than 500,000 people in the United States
Invited to cover the combined meeting of the Group for Research and Assessment of Psoriasis and Psoriatic Arthritis (GRAPPA) and SPARTAN (Spondyloarthritis Research and Treatment Network) in New York earlier this month, Rheumatology Network presents special reports on:
- A study now underway to create a blood test that will predict the risk of painful psoriatic arthritis among patients who have psoriasis.
- Efforts to make psoriatic arthritis harder to miss. While many primary care doctors and dermatologists are familiar with the skin condition known as psoriasis, they are not sufficiently alert to the fact that joint pain in the same patients may be related to the skin symptoms and may require specific treatment.
- A strong role that patients are taking in the process of crafting guidelines for psoriatic arthritis. Patients at the conference discussed ways in which their perception of the disease differs from that of doctors, which may affect treatment.
- New guidelines for the treatment of spondyloarthritis that are customized for patients in North America.
