Arthritis At Home 216 – Antimalarials in rheumatology

In this episode of Arthritis At Home, we are sharing the #CRArthritis interview with Dr. Sasha Bernatsky, rheumatologist at the McGill University Health Centre (MUHC). Dr. Bernatsky is also a James McGill Professor and senior scientist in the Centre for Health Outcomes Research and Division of Clinical Epidemiology at the Research Institute of the MUHC.

She discusses the crucial role antimalarials such as hydroxychloroquine play in the management of inflammatory arthritis, like rheumatoid arthritis, offering a favourable balance between efficacy and safety. The benefits of these medications include slowing down disease progression, reducing joint pain and protecting against organ damage, especially in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE).
