Yale Rheumatology State-of-the-Art Symposium: "Pre-autoimmunity and the Prevention of Rheumatic Diseases"


At the conclusion of this program, the participants should be able to:

  • Discuss pre-autoimmunity and the prevention of rheumatic disease
  • Use innovations and advancements in the field of rheumatoid disease
  • Identify at-risk individuals
  • Illustrate their knowledge on treatment options
  • Employ approaches to future progress


Recent progress in our understanding of the development of autoimmunity suggests the opportunity of intervening in the prodromal phase of rheumatic diseases to prevent the future onset of clinically-apparent disease, such as arthritis or other disease manifestations.

This one-day international symposium will bring thought leaders together to review the conceptual basis and available clinical data for implementing preventive strategies in rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, and other autoimmune and rheumatic conditions. Topics will include the definition of at-risk individuals, interventions under study, and prospects for new approaches in basic scientific and clinical investigation, and for the design of therapeutic clinical trials.
