Abstract

A panel of experts commissioned by the American College of Rheumatology have recently reviewed the literature related to the treatment of patients with ankylosing spondylitis and nonradiographic axial spondyloarthritis. They published a set of recommendations for the management of common clinical questions for both active and stable disease, including the appropriate use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, tumor necrosis factor inhibitors, rehabilitation, education, and preventive care. This article summarizes these recommendations and provides key practical messages for physicians taking care of these patients.
