In this subway-themed activity, Roy M. Fleischmann, MD, discusses the latest evidence for the management of patients with moderate-to-severe rheumatoid arthritis who do not achieve treatment goals with initial disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drug therapy. A key treatment principle emphasized by Dr. Fleischmann is using a treat-to-target approach guided by validated tools for assessing disease activity and patient-reported outcomes. Among the treatment options, Dr. Fleischmann highlights the pharmacology of the latest approved treatments for rheumatoid arthritis. Using case scenarios, he illustrates how they might be integrated with other therapies.
