Evaluating relationships between symptom duration and persistence of rheumatoid arthritis: does a window of opportunity exist? Results on the Leiden early arthritis clinic and ESPOIR cohorts.

Résumé : A prolonged symptom or disease duration at treatment initiation is associated with unfavourable outcomes in rheumatoid arthritis (RA). It is unknown whether this relation is linear, referring to a common 'the-earlier-the-better principle', or whether a transient time frame in which the disease is more susceptible to treatment exists, referring to a 'window of opportunity'. To elucidate this, we evaluated the shape of the associations of symptom duration with persistence of RA.
