This week we begin a discussion of a much larger topic, autoimmune disease. We discuss some clinical ideas as well as the philosophy behind trying to treat these conditions. In addition Dr. Davis asks Dr. Noska some questions about the ins and outs of biotherapeutic drainage. Enjoy!
Turns out the prevalence of spondyloarthropathies is greater than we had guessed: Dr. Davis posited about 1/100,000 (0.001%), but ankylosing spondylitis, the most prevalent spondyloarthropathy, has a prevalence of 0.1 to 0.2% in the United States.
