Identifying patients at high risk for heart disease is a challenge, as is knowing which prevention strategies can positively affect heart disease outcomes.
The risk factors identified through the famous Framingham Heart Study, which has tracked heart disease and outcomes among three generations of families, underestimate the risk for heart disease in patients with RA.
The same is true with the SCORE method, a heart disease risk assessment model developed in Europe.
"Right now, we don't know which RA patient is going to need more aggressive therapy," says Reiss.
"Additionally, it's uncertain what therapy is going to be effective because the standard therapies that target the lipid profile may not be warranted.
It's not known if statins are helpful in RA patients.
Reiss adds that new risk scores that are more specific for the RA population are being developed to identify those at greater risk: "It's more of a personalized medicine approach for testing patients."
