Rheumatic disease is a major cause of morbidity and disability in the Western world. There have been major developments in our understanding of the causes of rheumatic disease and in their treatment during the last half-century, and there are relatively few papers which can be regarded as truly 'landmark' in their construction and subsequent findings. Part of the Landmark Papers in series, this book provides a detailed review of the seminal papers that have paved the way for breakthroughs in the clinical management of the entire spectrum of rheumatic diseases.

Targeted therapies of rheumatic diseases have become a reality and have completely changed patient care as well as patient expectations. Initial success with therapies aimed at blocking TNF and IL-1 has stimulated the development of additional targeted approaches focused on other cytokines as well as specific cells and pathways involved in the pathogenesis of rheumatic diseases.Along with the clinical success of some of these targeted approaches, new information has been generated from their application concerning the pathophysiologic mechanisms underlying rheumatic diseases and, as a result, new targets have been identified.The ongoing dialogue between basic scientists, clinical investigators, metrologists and clinicians remains an essential component for the further development, refinement, integration and optimization of targeted therapies of the rheumatic diseases. The goal of this volume is to provide comprehensive, up to date information on all aspects of the rapidly evolving development of targeted therapies of the rheumatic diseases to foster further advances to improve therapy of patients with these conditions. Targeted Therapies in Rheumatology established itself as an excellent reference for all those needing to know about the clinical implications of new drugs and developments for patients suffering from rheumatoid arthritis. This volume takes up the further developments that have occurred in several of the drug therapies covered in the first volume, as well as looking at the latest areas of promising research.

This book is for postgraduate fellows, internists, and students interested in rheu- tology. It contains real cases and is designed to stimulate thought and further reading in this rapidly evolving specialty. I have included a series of common and uncommon cases that I have seen over the past decade in a busy consultative practice and have inserted up-to-date ref- ences and questions you may be asked on ward rounds or in clinic. My hope is that it will be a useful adjunct for physicians preparing for examinations or entering the field and will stimulate further interest. I would like to acknowledge my mentors Pierre Bouloux, MD, Tom Cooney, MD and thank Atul Deodhar, MD for his careful review of the manuscript. This book is dedicated to my parents and wife Batool who have made many sacrifices for which I remain eternally grateful.
