Welcome to the EULAR 2016 Report
The Annual European Congress of Rheumatology 2016, hosted by the European League Against Rheumatism (EULAR), once again showed its recognition and appreciation as the prime platform for rheumatology information exchange and professional education in Europe and for the world. Close to 14,000 attendees from nearly 120 countries came to this year’s EULAR Congress in London to hear the best in rheumatology research and clinical advances. The scientific program also included presentations carefully selected from more than 4,100 abstracts submitted.
The EULAR 2016 Report brings you highlights of some of the best presentations, focusing on the clinical and therapeutic findings that are able to change the way rheumatologists and other health professionals are practicing medicine. We hope that you will enjoy these accounts and statements of the latest in rheumatology clinical and translational research.
A number of the research reports that you will find in the EULAR 2016 Report also include access to video interviews with the presenters.
