    E111: PEXIVAS Subsets with Mike Walsh & Mats Junek

    E111: PEXIVAS Subsets with Mike Walsh & Mats Junek

    At ACR23 I had a twitter-disagreement about steroid tapers from PEXIVAS with Mike Walsh, the lead author on the PEXIVAS trial. He kindly agreed to join me for a moderated discussion. Loved hearing his perspective and have to admit he pulled me closer to his practice... but not all the way there. Longer podcast than usual but I prefer to release audio uncut and this took as long as it needed! Hoping y'all enjoy.

    E110: Rheum4Debate - Screening for RA-ILD with Joshua Solomon and Scott Matson

    E110: Rheum4Debate - Screening for RA-ILD with Joshua Solomon and Scott Matson

    Rheum4Debate is back!
    In this episode I moderated a debate between two pulmonologists about RA-ILD. As a reminder, Rheum4Debate is an Oxford-style debate show, where two debators disagree over a motion during 3 rounds of discussion. The motion for todays show was: 
    “Asymptomatic patients with rheumatoid arthritis and high risk features for interstitial lung disease should be screened using pulmonary function testing and a high resolution CT scan”
    Joshua defended the motion and Scott argued against it. I thoroughly enjoyed the discussion and am sure you will as well!

    E109: Abatacept for Pre-RA - the ARIAA Study

    E109: Abatacept for Pre-RA - the ARIAA Study

    Nice study this week on an important topic. Can we prevent the development of rheumatoid arthritis by initiating DMARDs during a preclinical phase? Lots to discuss: what does it mean to be "pre-clinical?" How does this fit with other studies of this nature?

    E108: Myositis Guidelines for Cancer Screening w/Alexander Oldroyd

    E108: Myositis Guidelines for Cancer Screening w/Alexander Oldroyd

    Informative podcast this week with Dr. Alexander Oldroyd, the first author of the recently published "International Guideline for Idiopathic Inflammatory Myopathy-Associated Cancer Screening." The article itself appeared in Nature Reviews Rheumatology and provides what I think is a very useful framework for approaching this issue.

    E106: GCA/PMR with Bhaskar Dasgupta

    Today I'm taking another twitter discussion into the podcast realm! Dr. Bhaskar Dasgupta has published hundreds of papers about polymyalgia rheumatica and giant cell arteritis, including a recent publication in Nature Reviews: Rheumatology that piqued my interest (https://www.nature.com/articles/s41584-023-00976-8). 
     
    In this podcast we discuss screening for GCA among patients with PMR, what it means to have a diagnosis, the role of novel IL-6 inhibitors, and many other topics. Have a listen and follow me @ebrheum and Dr. Dasgupta @profbdasgupta
