The changing face of rheumatoid arthritis: sustained remission for all?

Lookup NU author(s): Professor John IsaacsORCiD

In the future, new biomarkers for diagnosis, prognosis and therapeutic response will further improve outcomes. Additionally, preclinical diagnosis and tolerogenic therapies could provide sustained remission for some individuals, although ethical and societal challenges must also be addressed before rheumatoid arthritis becomes 'yesterday's disease'.
