  1. The mortality of rheumatoid arthritis.

    Article - En anglais

    Objective

    To determine the risk and causes of death and to quantify mortality predictors in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA).

    Methods

    RA patients (n=3,501) from 4 centers (Saskatoon n=905, Wichita n=1,405, Stanford n=886, and Santa Clara n=305) were followed for up to 35 years; 922 patients died.

    Results

    The overall standardized mortality ratio (SMR) was 2.26 (Saskatoon 2.24, Wichita 1.98, Stanford 3.08, Santa Clara 2.18) and increased with time.

    Mortality was strikingly increased for specific causes: infection, lymphoproliferative malignancy, gastroenterologic, and RA.
