Abstract

Whether TNF inhibitors prevent structural damage in ankylosing spondylitis remains a controversial topic, as three prospective trials failed to show any evidence to support this notion. However, data are accumulating from retrospective analyses of well-characterized cohorts of patients that could provide the solution to this controversy.Refers to Molnar C. et al.
