Yang M et al. – Rapid radiographic progression plays a central role in contributing to other composite rheumatoid arthritis (RA) indices, so this may be the best method for defining treat–to–prevent goals for RA. Accordingly, risk factors of rapid radiographic progression have been defined and two prediction models were retrospectively derived based on clinical trial data. Additional studies are required to develop risk models that can be used for accurate predictions.
