Conclusions About Benefits and Adverse Effects of DMARDs (2 of 2)

Few studies of sufficient size make direct comparisons of DMARDs in well-characterized patient populations; thus, it is not clear in which circumstances one DMARD will yield better outcomes than another.

No one instrument for measuring disease activity or functional status has been identified as clearly superior.

Evidence about the rate, types, and severity of adverse effects is too limited to permit conclusions about risks.
