During the webinar, insights will be shared on two patient preference studies focusing on treatments for Rheumatoid Arthritis and treatments to prevent Rheumatoid Arthritis. Their design, the results, potential impact and how we worked with patient research partners to develop these studies and the impact of this collaboration.
Rheumatoid arthritis (sometimes called “RA”) is a long term condition that mainly affects the joints and causes pain, swelling, stiffness and often fatigue. RA is fairly common and affects around 1% of the population. In most cases, patients begin having symptoms between 40 to 60 years of age, but it can also begin earlier, or later in life.
