2010 Rheumatoid arthritis classification criteria: an American College of Rheumatology/European League Against Rheumatism collaborative initiative
TLDR
This new classification system redefines the current paradigm of RA by focusing on features at earlier stages of disease that are associated with persistent and/or erosive disease, rather than defining the disease by its late-stage features. Expand
Estimates of the prevalence of arthritis and other rheumatic conditions in the United States. Part I.
TLDR
This report provides the best available prevalence estimates for the US prevalence of arthritis overall, rheumatoid arthritis, juvenile arthritis, the spondylarthritides, systemic lupus erythematosus, systemic sclerosis, and Sjögren's syndrome. Expand
Estimates of the prevalence of arthritis and selected musculoskeletal disorders in the United States.
TLDR
Given the limitations of the data on which they are based, this report provides the best available prevalence estimates for arthritis and other rheumatic conditions overall, and for selected musculoskeletal disorders, in the US population. Expand
American College of Rheumatology. Preliminary definition of improvement in rheumatoid arthritis.
TLDR
The results suggest that the definition of improvement presented is statistically powerful and does not identify a large percentage of placebo-treated patients as being improved, which the authors hope will be used widely in RA trials. Expand
Estimates of the prevalence of arthritis and other rheumatic conditions in the United States. Part II.
TLDR
This report provides the best available prevalence estimates for the US for osteoarthritis, polymyalgia rheumatica, gout, fibromyalgia, and carpal tunnel syndrome as well as the symptoms of neck and back pain. Expand
Osteoarthritis: New Insights. Part 1: The Disease and Its Risk Factors
TLDR
This article is part 1 of a two-part summary of an NIH conference, Stepping Away with OA: Prevention of Onset, Progression, and Disability of Osteoarthritis, which brought together experts in osteoarth arthritis from diverse backgrounds and provided a multidisciplinary and comprehensive summary of recent advances in the prevention.

2010 Rheumatoid arthritis classification criteria: an American College of Rheumatology/European League Against Rheumatism collaborative initiative.
TLDR
This new classification system redefines the current paradigm of RA by focusing on features at earlier stages of disease that are associated with persistent and/or erosive disease, rather than defining the disease by its late-stage features. Expand
The role of knee alignment in disease progression and functional decline in knee osteoarthritis.
TLDR
This is the first demonstration that in primary knee OA varus alignment increases risk of medial OA progression, that valgus alignment increased risk of lateral OA progress, that burden of malalignment predicts decline in physical function, and that these effects can be detected after as little as 18 months of observation. Expand
Frequency of specific cancer types in dermatomyositis and polymyositis: a population-based study
TLDR
Evidence is provided that dermatomyositis is strongly associated with a wide range of cancers, and the overall risk of malignant disease is modestly increased among patients with polymyositis, with an excess for some cancers. Expand
Evaluation of clinically relevant changes in patient reported outcomes in knee and hip osteoarthritis: the minimal clinically important improvement.
TLDR
Using criteria such as MCII in clinical trials would provide meaningful information which would help in interpreting the results by expressing them as a proportion of improved patients. Expand
