July 19, 2017

Among patients with long-standing refractory rheumatoid arthritis, there were improvements in patient-reported outcomes 1 year after treatment with rituximab, according to a recently published study.

“[These] results suggest that treatment with rituximab can improve [health-related quality of life] HRQoL in addition to controlling or improving underlying disease in patients with long-standing [rheumatoid arthritis] RA previously treated with [tumor necrosis factor inhibitors] TNFis,” Leslie R. Harrold, MD, MPH, from the University of Massachusetts Medical School, and colleagues wrote.
