For over 18 years, the British Society for Rheumatology Biologics Register for Rheumatoid Arthritis has been collecting information on the safety of biologic treatments for rheumatoid arthritis. There are now close to 30,000 UK people with RA who have contributed data. This webinar will give an overview of this large research study, highlight some of the main research findings on biologic safety that have been found so far and outline plans for how it plans to continue to monitor the safety of new drugs, including biosimilars. 

The expert speaker for this webinar will be Professor Kimme Hyrich, an epidemiologist at The Centre for Musculoskeletal Research at The University of Manchester and a Consultant Rheumatologist at Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. Professor Hyrich has specialist clinical and research interests in inflammatory arthritis in adults and children with a focus on understanding the effectiveness and safety of biologic therapies. She is the national scientific lead for The British Society for Rheumatology Biologics Register for Rheumatoid Arthritis and The Biologics for Children with Rheumatic Diseases study.

This webinar will be streaming LIVE, so you will also have the opportunity to type in questions at the end of the presentation and have them answered by Prof. Hyrich in real time. This is an exclusive opportunity to hear from, and interact with, experts in their field in the comfort of your own home.

What is a webinar? A webinar is a live web-based video conference that uses the internet to connect the individual hosting the webinar (NRAS) to a wider, larger audience–the viewers and listeners of the webinar from all over the world. Hosts can show themselves speaking, switch to their computer screens for slideshows or demonstrations, and even invite guests from other locations to co-present the webinar. The NRAS RA Matters online webinars will feature presentations by experts followed by the opportunity to ask questions in real time that the presenter will respond to live.
