OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to compare the clinical and economic consequences of using subcutaneous methotrexate (Metoject(®)) with respect to oral methotrexate in the management of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) in Spain. METHODS A cost-effectiveness analysis was performed to compare early treatment of RA using a Markov model. The model allowed us to(More)
Anti-Tumor Necrosis Factor (anti-TNF) drugs are biologic agents commonly used to treat rheumatoid arthritis (RA). However, anti-TNFs are not effective in approximately one out of four treated patients.

Chrysiasis has been defined as a permanent discolouration of the skin caused by long-term treatment with gold salts. It involves predominantly areas of the skin exposed to ultraviolet radiation, including sunlight (1-2-3). Initially, chrysiasis was described in patients with pulmonary tuberculosis, receiving high doses of parenteral gold compounds. Later,(More)
Collagen arthritis is an experimental model for rheumatoid arthritis which is induced in susceptible DBA/1 mice after immunization with native type II collagen (CII). All immunized mice exhibit a humoral response to CII regardless of the occurrence of articular pathology. In order to further analyze the determinants recognized on the CII molecule, we have(More)
