MORE ABOUT THIS BOOK

Main description:

A huge number of therapeutic studies has been published in rheumatology and clinical immunology. This number grows substantially by the year. As such, it becomes increasingly difficult to keep track of this multitude of studies and the ensuing therapeutic trends. Further to this, a particular study can be referred to in a variety of ways, either as a shortened version of the title or an acronym, adding to the confusion. The book Clinical Trials in Rheumatology, Second Edition, provides an updated summary of the important studies in the field for easy reference. Every study is shown with name, acronym (if in existence), authors, complete citation, study design, and a short overview of the trial's data and main conclusions. An acronym finder is supplied at the beginning of the book. This book is a valuable reference tool for rheumatologists and other clinical specialties, as well as for research scientists interested in immunomodulatory and selected other drug therapies in rheumatologic diseases.


Feature:

Puts all the basic information on clinical trials in this area (i.e. immunosuppressant drugs) into the same place

Provides all necessary information for delving deeper into any of the trials presented by providing the journal citation

Provides all of the various names by which a particular trial may be referred to at meetings or in other publications to mitigate confusion

Appendix with all acronyms and other abbreviations of clinical trials for quick reference
