RA treatment linked to better microvascular health

Escalating RA treatment can have beneficial effects on the microvasculature of the retina, an Australian study suggests.

Comparing 26 severe and 27 stable patients with RA, the researchers showed that patients in the severe group who received treatment escalation not only improved their arthritis-related scores, but also showed a decrease in the diameter of their retinal venules.

However, patients in the stable
