  1. Incidence of rheumatoid arthritis in central Massachusetts.

    Article - En anglais

    Objective

    To determine whether there is a secular decline in the incidence of rheumatoid arthritis (RA), as has been suggested by previous studies.

    Methods

    In the absence of comprehensive data in the United States population, we estimated RA incidence in a health maintenance organization population from 1987 through 1990 and compared the rates with those in an earlier, similarly performed study from Rochester, Minnesota, which covered the years 1950 through 1974.

    RA estimates were based on our review of medical records of patients who had been diagnosed as having RA or related diseases during the period of January 1, 1987 through December 31, 1990.
