ACR/ARHP 2012 Meeting

This past November, Clinical Geriatrics attended the American College or Rheumatology/Association of Rheumatology Health Professionals 2012 Annual Meeting in Washington, DC. Many studies were presented at this year’s conference and we’ve highlighted a few for you in this month’s issue. In one study, authors introduced trials suggesting that prednisone may improve rheumatoid arthritis-related fatigue. This 12-week, double-blind, placebo-controlled study included 350 patients who were given either 5 mg delayed-release prednisone or a placebo. After the full 12-week period, those receiving prednisone showed significant improvements in FACIT-F scores when compared with the placebo group. For full results and trial methods, the full write-up is available here >>
