Rheumatology has made remarkable advances in patient treatment in the past decade related to the impressive array of new drugs that have been approved or are undergoing clinical trial. While this situation should engender optimism for the future, concerns about sustaining momentum have been raised. These concerns relate to uncertainty in the research agenda for major diseases such as osteoarthritis and fibromyalgia, lack of informatics systems to allow accurate assessment of risks and benefits of new treatments, and a paucity of clinical trials in rheumatoid arthritis aimed at sustained remission or cure. Fortunately, the opportunities for the future remain very bright because of burgeoning research in biomedicine and outcomes assessment as well as progress in developing personalized medicine to individualize treatment better.
