Leading clinicians and clinical researchers discuss in practical detail the newest treatments used in rheumatic diseases, emphasizing - without neglecting current standard treatments - those experimental therapies now undergoing clinical trials and poised for early introduction into the rheumatology armamentarium. The diseases and therapeutic regimes examined here range from rheumatoid arthritis and its treatment by gene therapy, to osteoarthritis and systemic autoimune diseases. Each chapter is organized so that the busy clinician can quickly obtain all the information needed optimal patient treatment. This includes an analysis of the pathogenic mechanisms that explain the molecular basis of the newer therapeutics, reviews of animal data and the results of clinical trials, and recommendations concerning use, side effects, and precautions.

"It is indeed most helpful to those practicing Rheumatology. The author is a credible authority in the subject matter of the book...This book covers an exhaustive list of therapeutic topics. From familiar- such as Non Steroidal Drugs to unusual such as Apoptosis Regulation have been discussed in detail. Subjects such as Gene Therapy are especially well covered. The unique aspect of this book has to be its ability to discuss the latest knowledge in depth without losing sight of its primary objective; examining its clinical applicability...this book will prove to be of incomparable value; especially to practicing rheumatologists. It lays forth clearly what can be offered to the patient and why it may be of benefit when faced with the bewildering choices of therapeutic options available today. There are really no other books quite like it." -Doody's Health Sciences Book Review Journal "This book could not have been published at a better time from the rheumatology trainee's point of view. It is written in a coherent and concise manner, which serves as an excellent source for all aspects of therapeutics in the rheumatic diseases. Furthermore, the frequent use of diagrams and graphs allowed emphasis of key points. This publication links the basic science of rheumatic diseases to a comprehensive text of therapeutic mechanisms and efficacy." -The Journal of Rheumatology
