Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a progressive and painful systemic inflammatory disease that preferentially attacks the synovium of the joints, leading to joint destruction, debility, and deformity. Increased understanding of the underlying pathophysiology of RA has made a remarkable difference in its treatment and prognosis. Numerous therapeutic agents with diverse targets and mechanisms have been added to the RA armamentarium, allowing for intervention at various stages in the pathogenic process of the disease. This activity will review clinical advances in RA as well as psoriatic arthritis (PsA) and spondyloarthropathy (SpA).
