Great post. I agree, we don't have the piles of evidence that is available to other fields such as cardiology. You make a great point in saying that there isn't enough evidence out there to get through the day. I couldn't agree more, especially in rheumatology.


Thanks. I wonder though whether the cardiologists, on seeing the Jupiter/Crestor study, would prefer a little less evidence. Fortunately the biologics have brought research money into our field and perhaps there will be a trickle down to the more pharma-challenged diagnoses.
