Axial spondyloarthritis (AxS) and psoriatic arthritis (PsA) are two types of chronic inflammatory disease presented with an array of unmet needs regarding their diagnosis and management. Presenting symptoms such as axial skeleton pain, enthesitis, and arthritis, patients with AxS and PsA commonly experience diagnostic delay, which hinders disease evaluation. This article reviews a series of abstracts presented at the European League Against Rheumatism (EULAR) 2021 European Virtual Congress of Rheumatology and covers existing issues surrounding these inflammatory diseases, current ongoing studies, and different approaches to their management.

Infographic: Osteoarthritis - Redefining the Way We Consider This Chronic Condition
Osteoarthritis is the most common form of long-term musculoskeletal disease, and is increasing in prevalence as societies become older. One of the key factors of living well with a disease that spans decades of a patient’s life is to diagnose the condition earlier, long before the disease limits function significantly, or causes disability.
Tackling Unmet Medical Need: How Slow-Release Intra-articular Corticosteroids Could Play a Role in Improving Quality of Life and Reducing Risk in Osteoarthritis
Osteoarthritis (OA) is the fastest growing cause of disability worldwide, but, with few proven therapeutic options, it is an underserved condition. With increasingly ageing populations contributing to a rising global prevalence, this unmet need only threatens to worsen in the coming years.
Immune Relevant Behavioural Interventions: Immunological Evidence as an Integral Measure of Behavioural Interventions for Rheumatic Diseases, a Review of Current Research
Behavioural interventions and immunologic indicators of health, disease activity, and immune function are discrete subject areas
