ABSTRACT
The article presents information on a study on the effect of prednisolone and modifying antirheumatic drug in early rheumatoid arthritis (RA). It is found that low-dose prednisolone in addition to the initial disease-modifying antirheumatic drug (DMARD) in patients with early active rheumatoid arthritis reduces joint destruction and increases the remission rate. This study included 259 patients between the age group 18 to 80 years. Patients with previous DMARD or glucocorticoid treatment, low bone mineral density, or a history of fragility fracture were excluded from the study.
