ABSTRACT
In the management of early and established rheumatoid arthritis, methotrexate is recommended as a first-line drug by the European League Against Rheumatism and the American College of Rheumatology. The long-term safety of methotrexate, including issues of liver toxicity, hypersensitivity pneumonitis, cytopenia, cardivascular diseases, serious infections, and malignancies, was investigated by the current systematic literature research.
