Managing Psoriatic Arthritis to Improve Patient Outcomes

Many psoriatic arthritis (PsA) patients are not receiving medical treatment for their condition, even though they experience a poor quality of life due to the symptoms of PsA. Reasons for this undertreatment include physicians underestimating the systemic nature and psychosocial impact of PsA, a lack of physician knowledge of the current treatment goals and recommendations, and a lack of patient-centered approaches to manage PsA. A recent survey of rheumatologists revealed that only 23% of ...

Treatment Strategies in Chronic Leukemias and Introduction to CAR-T Therapy

Chronic lymphocytic (CLL) and chronic myelogenous (CML) leukemia are commonly diagnosed and treated by community oncologists.

Tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) annihilated the concept of CML as a poorly controlled disease, and most patients are now expected to live a normal life, with good quality of life. New testing procedures have suggested that some patients may be ...
