BONES: Cigdem Koca (Turkey), Veronika Rehorcikova (Slovakia), Radu Petroman (Romania), Marian Faynyk (Ukraine): "Randomized controlled study comparing low dose methotrexate combined with gluco- corticoids to standard dose methotrexate alone in newly diagnosed rheumatoid arthritis patients."
The gluco- and mineralocorticoid insufficiency is corrected by providing hydrocortisone and fludrocortisone, respectively.
Doses of gluco-corticoids were not ascertained in the study because gluco- corticoids were not a primary variable of our study, and the patients were not using gluco-corticoids on a regular basis as primary DMARD so anti-inflammatory effect and doses were not ascertained.
