Kurzbeschreibung

There has been a revolution in treatments for inflammatory arthritis. Mostly, this is due to the introduction of biologics, particularly TNF inhibitors. These have changed approach to treatment in two ways. First, they appear substantially more effective than conventional drugs. Second, they are far more expensive than traditional treatment approaches. One consequence of this therapeutic revolution is a need to better understand arthritis and to place the new biological treatments into the context of existing management approaches.
