  1. Decreasing incidence and prevalence of rheumatoid arthritis in Pima Indians over a twenty-five-year period.

    Article - En anglais


    To evaluate temporal trends in the incidence of rheumatoid arthritis (RA).


    Incident cases of RA were identified among a population-based cohort of Pima Indians in Arizona over the period 1965-1990.


    Among 2,894 subjects, 78 incident cases of RA were identified.

    The age-adjusted incidence declined by 55% in men (Ptrend=0.225), and by 57% in women (Ptrend=0.017) after controlling for oral contraceptive or estrogen use and for pregnancy experience.

    During the same period, age-adjusted prevalence rates of active RA decreased by 29% in men (Ptrend=0.63) and by 40% in women (Ptrend=0.02).
