HSS Presents New Research at the ACR Convergence 2023
At this year’s American College of Rheumatology (ACR) annual meeting, HSS presented exciting research related to rheumatology and orthopedics.
Research highlights include studies that have found an initial high-risk antibody profile for antiphospholipid syndrome (APS) tended to remain high in pediatric patients, a correlation between obesity and more severe disease flare symptoms in patients with early rheumatoid arthritis (RA), people with inflammatory arthritis face challenges in maintaining employment, a link between aging and physical activity, and people with vasculitis frequently suffer from frailty, new research findings in antiphospholipid syndrome (APS) insights on improving communications with diverse patient populations, and and new research on reproductive health.
A new study by HSS investigators including Jheel Pandya, MD, Karen Onel, MD, Doruk Erkan, MD, MPH has found that an initial high-risk antibody profile for APS tended to remain high in pediatric patients.
A recent study from HSS and others has found a correlation between obesity and more severe disease flare symptoms that negatively affect quality of life in patients with early RA, a systemic, autoimmune, inflammatory disorder affecting multiple joints in the body.
An HSS study presented by Joan Westreich, MSW, LCSW, social work coordinator, Early Arthritis Initiative at HSS reveals a significant psychological impact related to inflammatory arthritis patients’ efforts to maintain employment while coping with the challenges of their illness.
People with arthritis who report more negative feelings about how they are aging tend to get less physical activity and perceive themselves as less healthy, according to a new study by researchers at HSS and Weill Cornell Medicine. However, self-perception of good health explained the effect of negative thinking – providing an opportunity for clinicians to focus on a patient’s outlook on aging as well as their overall health.
According to a new study from researchers at HSS and colleagues from the University of Pittsburgh and the University of Pennsylvania, people with vasculitis frequently suffer from frailty, a process that can affect our ability to recover after an illness or a fall, which in turn is linked to poor health outcomes.
Investigators from the Antiphospholipid Syndrome Alliance for Clinical Trials and International Networking (APS ACTION) presented new research findings in antiphospholipid syndrome (APS) at the American College of Rheumatology (ACR) Convergence 2023, the ACR’s annual meeting.
Bella Elogoodin, vice president, Service Excellence & Language Access at HSS, shared strategies to enhance and enable communication with language-diverse patients at the American College of Rheumatology (ACR) Convergence 2023 in a session titled, “Lost in Translation: Creating Access Pathways for Language-Diverse Patients in Rheumatic Care Settings.”
At this year’s American College of Rheumatology (ACR) annual meeting, HSS presented a number of studies focused on reproductive health for patients with systemic lupus erythematosus, rheumatoid arthritis, and other rheumatic diseases, including issues related to fertility, sexual function, use of contraception and HPV vaccination.
