The sixth volume in this popular series provides readers with an informed and authoritative overview of recent developments in the treatment of rheumatic diseases.
Updates on NSAIDs and new biologic agents feature prominently in this latest volume, but new this year are commentaries on the use of imaging in the diagnosis and monitoring of osteoarthritis, and a review of recent studies on the re-emergent problem of gout. A major section on connective tissue disease includes chapters on antiphospholipid syndrome, interstitial lung disease, and the applications of immunosuppressant therapy. Drawing on an internationally recognised team of contributors this latest volume in a now well-established series continues to provide readers with comprehensive and informed analysis of the published literature in this challenging field.
