Abstract Share this page

In the past two decades, Chinese rheumatology has developed rapidly in terms of both clinical practice and basic research. Many rheumatology departments and divisions have been established, creating positions for more residents to join rheumatology practices. Numerous studies of rheumatic diseases have been published in recent years by Chinese rheumatologists and immunologists, supported by government funding that has dramatically increased over the past few years. These studies are focused mainly on epidemiology, mechanisms, early diagnosis and interventions of rheumatic diseases. Increasing numbers of national and international scientific activities in China, including research collaborations, education programmes and conferences have greatly helped the development of rheumatology. In this APLAR series article, the major, high-impact studies and latest developments in Chinese rheumatology are reviewed.
