    Abstract

    The prevalent use of antirheumatic drugs in a cohort of 311 middle aged female patients with seropositive and seronegative rheumatoid arthritis (RA) was investigated. Seropositive patients used a greater amount and more aggressive drugs during each decade of disease duration. The overall use of drugs decreased with disease duration, except for a subgroup of seropositive patients with RA who, with increased disease duration, used more aggressive drugs.
