The American College of Rheumatology has updated guidelines on the treatment of RA and continues to recommend methotrexate as the first-line treatment, unless contraindications are present. Ann Rheum Dis. Tsonaka R, The first group of patients maintained the same DMARD regimen, the second group tapered DMARDs by 50%, and the third group tapered DMARDs for six months and then discontinued all DMARDs.35 Approximately 84% of the patients who continued full DMARD treatment remained in remission, compared with 61% in the tapering arm and 48% in the discontinuation arm.35 Patients who tested positive for anti-citrullinated protein antibodies were more likely to relapse with medication tapering.35 Another randomized clinical trial explored drug cessation in patients with early RA who achieved remission with etanercept (Enbrel) and methotrexate after nine months. A history of smoking is also strongly associated with the development of extra-articular manifestations, especially rheumatoid nodules (odds ratio = 7.3), vasculitis, and interstitial lung disease.15. Leading cause of death in patients with RA, Present in 30% to 50% of persons with RA on autopsy, rarely leads to tamponade, Acute, red, painful eye; occurs in less than 1% of patients with RA, Secondary Sjögren syndrome, dry mouth may also occur, More severe scleritis, if untreated can perforate anterior chamber, Splenomegaly, neutropenia, and thrombocytopenia, Caused by C1–C2 subluxation, seen on flexion-extension radiography, Carpal tunnel, mononeuritis multiplex (foot drop), Nodules and pneumoconiosis (e.g., in coal miners), May resemble bronchiolitis obliterans with organizing pneumonia, idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, patient may also have pulmonary arterial hypertension, Exudative effusion with markedly low glucose level, Firm or rubbery, located on pressure areas (e.g., olecranon), Poor prognosis, increased mortality, rare but occurs with severe RA (i.e., erosive, deforming, and seropositive disease).
