It reviews the goals of treatment, approach to treatment, and monitoring of outcomes in patients with RA with currently available therapies. Special focus is placed on the role of newer biologic agents and their comparative data. This supplement also describes the direct and indirect costs associated with RA, with a focus on treatment-related costs, the role of specialty pharmacy and managed care, and mechanisms to provide disease management that optimizes economic outcomes.
