Did you know that up until now there were no protocols, no true guidelines for doctors in the US in treating AS and SpA? They were simply never created. Thankfully that has just changed. We have been working on this issue for years and now our work is paying off.
Untreated and under-treated pain is a huge public health issue that has far-reaching impact in countless areas of life for those suffering in pain. As many as 19% of adults in the US are experiencing chronic pain.
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.
