  5. (European Alliance of Associations for Rheumatology) Population-based data shared at the EULAR 2021 congress -- The COVID-19 pandemic caused by the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 virus (SARS-CoV-2) is of particular concern for people with inflammatory diseases, and there are concerns that these people may be at higher risk and have poorer outcomes. However, at present the implications remain poorly understood. Population-based data from Spain show individuals with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) had an increased risk of COVID-19 diagnosis and hospitalization compared to the general population. Similarly, data from the ARTIS database in Sweden show risks of severe COVID-19 were increased among people with inflammatory joint diseases. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)
  6. (European Alliance of Associations for Rheumatology) Developing a call to action for a global healthcare challenge -- The current delay to diagnosis from symptom onset represents one of the greatest challenges in axial spondyloarthritis (axSpA) - a type of inflammatory arthritis affecting the back. Research shows an average delay of almost 7 years - and up to 15 years in some cases - during which time the condition can progress and lead to irreversible damage. Data indicates that women wait longer than men for a diagnosis, and there has been very limited progress in reducing the time to diagnosis. This delay has a hugely detrimental impact on a person's quality of life. Because the disease frequently has early onset, individuals are left untreated - or with incorrectly treated symptoms - a...

  7. (European Alliance of Associations for Rheumatology) Uveitis is an inflammation of the eye and is a common extra-articular manifestation associated with juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA). It can cause vision-threatening complications, and if left uncontrolled may even lead to blindness. The majority of children develop uveitis within the first 2 years after arthritis symptom onset, but it can continue into adulthood. This is the first prospective study to analyzed uveitis risk after drug withdrawal, and found that uveitis relapses are common. Rheumatologists and ophthalmologists should be aware and should plan for uveitis screening after drug withdrawal. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)
  8. (European Alliance of Associations for Rheumatology) Data released at the 2021 EULAR congress show a substantial decline in the risk of both dementia and heart failure in people with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) onset in the 2000s as compared to 1980s -- coinciding with the advent of novel biologic treatments for RA. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)
  9. (European Alliance of Associations for Rheumatology) New data shared at the EULAR 2021 Virtual Congress -- There is increasing evidence that environmental air pollution is associated with people developing inflammatory arthritis. At the 2021 EULAR congress, a large population-based study of French women reports passive exposure to smoking during childhood or adulthood increases the risk of developing rheumatoid arthritis (RA). A second study in Italy found that air pollution also has an impact - with air pollution levels showing an association with failure of biologic therapy. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)
  10. (European Alliance of Associations for Rheumatology) German RABBIT registry data -- Elderly people with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) are generally at increased risk of serious infections. At the same time, some anti-rheumatic treatments have been associated with a higher serious infection risk, but the extent to which older people are exposed to higher risks with some newer classes of therapy is an open question. Results of this study suggest that treatment with new classes of drugs is not associated with an increased risk of serious infection in elderly patients above 70 years of age.

  11. At my animal hospital in upstate New York, an epicenter of the U.S. tick epidemic, my dog Fawn lets out a whimper as the veterinarian injects her with her annual Lyme disease shot. I roll my eyes. She doesn’t know how good she has it. The injection means that if a tick bites her (and in rural New York, a tick always does), the creepy crawly will feast on dog blood that’s been supercharged with a Lyme bacteria-killing substance, and Lyme disease won’t be transmitted to Fawn. I wish I could be shot up with that superpower. Currently, there is no human vaccine for Lyme disease—even though more than two decades ago, people could get a safe and effective preventative shot similar to Fawn’s. Now, thanks to potent anti-vaccine pushback, all we can do is try to avoid...

  14. People who live with long-term physical conditions are twice as likely to have poor mental health as those who do not. For people with multiple long-term conditions the chances of having poor mental health are greater still. Yet people with long-term physical conditions still face many barriers to accessing mental health support. Ask How I Am, produced by Centre for Mental Health and National Voices, is based on interviews with people living with a wide range of long-term physical conditions, including diabetes, arthritis, cancer and heart disease, and looks at the part that the Covid-19 pandemic has played in adding yet more pressure to people's mental health. Once again, people and communities with the least resources and greatest adversities have seen the biggest impacts on their menta...

  19. (European Alliance of Associations for Rheumatology) Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an inflammatory autoimmune disease that causes pain, swelling and stiffness in the joints. It can also cause fatigue, and the underlying inflammation may affect other body systems. In people with RA, low empowerment is associated with worse health. Interventions to improve empowerment may include helping people to master their pain, increase physical function, and improve physical activity. Remote technologies to support patient-reported self-assessment may help improve patient empowerment and disease management. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)
