CreakyJoints Study Finds 74 Percent of Rheumatoid Arthritis Patients Dissatisfied with Treatment

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 14 settembre 2019

Today, CreakyJoints®, a Global Healthy Living Foundation patient community, shared study findings that nearly three-fourths of people with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) responding to a survey expressed dissatisfaction with their treatments, despite the wide variety of available medications including biologic Disease Modifying Antirheumatic Drugs (bDMARDs). Even on treatment, respondents experienced bothersome symptoms, such as fatigue (82%), pain (76%) and physical limitations (75%), which negatively impacted their quality of life. These results and others were reported in “Patient Perceptions of Unmet Medical Need in Rheumatoid Arthritis: A Cross-Sectional Survey in the USA,” published in the peer-reviewed Rheumatology and Therapy (6 Aug 2019). The study also found that despite active treatment to reduce inflammation and pain, most respondents with RA still had either moderate disease activity (37%) or high disease activity (33%) while very few achieved remission (16%) or low disease activity (13%) with their current treatment. Of those individuals who reported not being satisfied with their treatment, approximately half were currently experiencing a flare (a period of exacerbated symptoms).
