Aims and scope
A major focus of the journal is on the immunologic processes leading to inflammation, damage and repair as they relate to autoimmune rheumatic and musculoskeletal conditions, and which inform the translation of this knowledge into advances in clinical care.
Original basic, translational and clinical research is considered for publication along with results of early and late phase therapeutic trials, especially as they pertain to the underpinning science that informs clinical observations in interventional studies.
Featured Review: The importance of ultrasound in identifying and differentiating patients with early inflammatory arthritis
Kaeley et al. provide an in-depth review of how ultrasound—a portable, convenient, noninvasive, and cost-effective imaging technique—can be used in the differential diagnosis of early inflammatory arthritis phenotypes and also assess any important limitations of the technique. The authors also propose an algorithm that may enable working through a differential diagnosis both clinically and by prioritizing anatomical targets.
