Medscape provides a helpful recap of some of the biggest findings from the European League Against Rheumatism’s (EULAR) 2015 Meeting, held in Rome in June.
Previous studies have shown that if you're living with ankylosing spondylitis your vascular system (the arteries and veins that transport blood throughout the body) is at greater risk of developing disease. A new study however suggests that AS patients are also at greater risk of mortality should they develop vascular disease or experience a vascular event.

Spondyloarthritis (SpA) remains grossly under diagnosed, with an average delay of eight to 11 years between symptom onset and diagnosis.
