ASAS-EULAR Recommendations for the Management of Axial Spondyloarthritis: 2022 Update

Ann Rheum Dis 2022; online ahead of print doi:10.1136/ard-2022-223296

Since the last update in 2016, more data have become available on existing treatment options for axSpA, and particularly on IL-17i. The increasing availability of more drugs and with different modes of action raises questions around their positioning in the treatment pathway. This review sought to update the 2016 recommendations with newly available evidence.
