IAG’s Team is Presenting at ACR / ARHP Annual Meeting, Chicago, 19-24 October 2018

It is now widely accepted that inflammation is the major factor driving the progression of structural damage in auto-immune diseases such as rheumatoid, psoriatic arthritis as well as degenerative diseases conditions such as osteoarthritis. Development of novel therapies in other auto-immune diseases, including lupus, gout, scleroderma and lupus nephritis as well as break-through therapies which target pain (low back pain and OA pain for instance) is linked to the reduction of inflammation.

Several imaging biomarkers have been identified to understand pain through the use of imaging and to predict clinical outcomes as early as possible. At ACR, we will be presenting new data on using imaging and non-imaging biomarkers to differentiate patients with different rheumatic conditions, to bring machine learning technique to identify the right population with a risk of early disease onset as well as how to use MRI combined inflammation and combined damage scores to predict successful tapering with the treatment dose.
