Towards a strategic approach in spondyloarthritis
Autor: Cătălin Codreanu

Spondyloarthritis (SpA) is the umbrella term for a broad spectrum of inflammatory rheumatic diseases, ranging from ankylosing spondylitis or radiographic axialSpA to non-radiographic axialSpA, but also psoriatic arthritis.
Over the last couple of decades, we have witnessed remarkable advances in the pathogenesis, management and treatment of SpA. The optimal management of patients with SpA requires a
combination of pharmacological and non-pharmacological treatments, including exercise and physical therapy. The advent of biologic drugs has transformed the management of patients with SpA; however, there is an unmet need for results from head-to-head studies comparing the efficacy and safety of different biologics in patients with SpA.
Despite significant advances in the management of SpA, and treatment guidelines that provide a frame work, clinicians continue to face many challenges in choosing the best treatment options for an individual patient. Strategy involves setting goals and priorities, determining actions to achieve the goals, and mobilizing resources to execute the actions. Strategy is considered a type of problem solving with three parts: a diagnosis that defines or explains the nature of the challenge, a guiding policy for dealing with the challenge and coherent actions designed to carry out the guiding policy.
An example of strategic thinking is the concept of T2T strategies, well founded in the management of other rheumatic diseases, mainly rheumatoid arthritis. The 2017 international task force update of recommendations on T2T in SpA and psoriatic arthritis advised that the treatment target should be the clinical remission or inactive disease, including musculoskeletal symptoms (axial disease, arthritis, dactylitis, enthesitis) and extra-articular manifestations.
