Database Update: February 2012

At 1st March 2012, 3026 participants are completing questionnaires and a further 1643 have agreed to allow information to be gathered from state and national registries. There are 246 participating rheumatologists. The charts below summarise the age characteristics of the ARAD cohort.

Patient recruitment is continuing. Patients wanting more information are being guided to the “Patients what do you need to do?” section and/or to contact a State Co-ordinators. This DOES NOT replace rheumatologists referring patients to ARAD. Rheumatologists are urged to continue enrolling ALL patients, see the “Rheumatologists – what do I need to do?” section. We would like to thank all participants and participating rheumatologists for their continuing support of ARAD.

A number of papers have been published with data that has been gathered from ARAD participants. A list of published papers can be found here.
