Research output: Contribution to journalReview article


In this review, we follow the consecutive steps of the internationally accepted therapeutic strategy of rheumatoid arthritis (RA). We summarise in brief the current European recommendations, and provide some advice on methotrexate (MTX) therapy. The initiation, maintenance and, if needed, switch of biological therapy is also discussed. Having reached remission or low disease activity (LDA), tapering or discontinuation of biologics may be considered. Finally, we review the possibilities and the most important biomarkers of personalised treatment.
