Some of the topics covered at the AHA sessions included therapies for acute coronary syndromes, C-reactive protein levels, and familial hypercholesterolemia. NSAID-related GI events, presented at the European meeting, are still a significant concern. News on the radiology front featured golimumab for patients with psoriatic arthritis, tocilizumab for rheumatoid arthritis, and infliximab (Remicade) plus methotrexate, also for rheumatoid arthritis.
