ConclusionsThese results suggest that RA patients treated with anti-TNF are at an increased risk of NMSC, especially SCC. However, this association in RA urgently needs the more clinical studies and basic researches to further validate.Key Points• Rheumatoid arthritis patients treated with tumor necrosis factor inhibitors are associated with a higher risk of non-melanoma skin cancer compared to those patients treated without tumor necrosis factor inhibitors. Hence, tumor necrosis factor inhibitors may be avoided in rheumatoid arthritis pa tients who are at high risk of non-melanoma skin cancer.• Of note, rheumato...

The primary endpoint was a statistically significant increase in adequate PPSV23 and influenza vaccination.MethodsIn 2017, rheumatology outpatients completed an anonymous questionnaire recording vaccination knowledge, status, and barriers. Simultaneously, a low-cost multifaceted quality improvement (QI) intervention was performed. All outpatients on oral...
