This activity is intended for a global audience of rheumatologists and primary care physicians.


Upon completion of this activity, participants will:
Have increased knowledge regarding the

  • Importance of limiting disease progression to avoid permanent disability in axSpA and PsA
  • Key clinical data for interleukin (IL)-17 inhibitors in axSpA and PsA
