Patient and doctor discordance may reduce chances of remission in rheumatoid and psoriatic arthritis
Discordance between patient's and physician's evaluation of disease activity may reduce likelihood of remission in rheumatoid arthritis and psoriatic arthritis. Dr Paul Studenic, Austria, is joined by Dr Brigitte Michelsen and Prof Tore Kvien, both from the department of Rheumatology at the Diakonhjemmet Hospital in Oslo, Norway, to discuss their study "Discordance between tender and swollen joint count as well as patient's and evaluator's global assessment may reduce likelihood of remission in patients with rheumatoid arthritis and psoriatic arthritis: data from the prospective multicentre NOR-DMARD study".Read the full details on the Annals of the Rheumatic Diseases website (http://ard.bmj.com/content/76/4/708), where you can also find the related Lay Summary (https://goo.gl/JBQbFc).

Capture Hi-C reveals novel drug targets in rheumatic diseases
The paper discussed in this podcast provides an approach, using Capture Hi-C data, to link genetic associations to potential causal genes and assess the potential of drug repurposing in three rheumatic diseases. This has the potential to identify genes which are functionally relevant and the target of existing therapies, which could provide new ways to treat patients, enhancing their quality of life and reducing the economic impact on healthcare providers.
