NORWALK, Conn., Feb. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- UBM Medica US announces that Musculoskeletal Network features new reports on the top advances in rheumatology for 2012 in clinical research and basic science, as chosen by two top experts in the field: rheumatologist David Isenberg MD of University College London and Daniel Kastner MD PhD, scientific director of the National Human Genome Research Institute.
- The report about basic science research reveals extensive new revelations about what triggers autoimmune disease, in which some people's immune systems begin to attack their own cells. In rheumatologic disorders, the result is inflammation in the joints, pain, and disability.
- Clinical studies highlighted in the report include evidence of effectiveness for new treatments for rheumatoid arthritis, for a juvenile form of arthritis, and for systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). Among many other advances, there is solid new information about whether or not to continue treatment when a patient with SLE goes into remission and stops experiencing symptoms.
