Immune Checkpoint Inhibitor Induced Inflammatory Arthritis and Sicca Syndrome


Welcome back #RheumJC friends!

After enjoying a little summer break, #RheumJC is happy to announce our next journal club will be Thursday, September 29th.

We’ll be discussing the Annals of the Rheumatic Disease article Inflammatory arthritis and sicca syndrome induced by nivolumab and ipilimumab by Dr. Laura C Cappelli, et al.

We are also extremely pleased to that the author, Dr. Laura Cappelli, will be joining us for the first one-hour session.

Dr. Laura Cappelli (@cappelliMD) is a staff rheumatologist with Johns Hopkins Division of Rheumatology.

BMJ has graciously made Dr. Cappelli’s article and the accompanying editorial free to access from 22nd September to 6th October (until one week after the journal club).

If needed, take a look at our Intro to Twitter page or our Journal Club Getting Started Guide.

We strongly suggest using the website as the best way to participate in the chat by typing in the #RheumJC hashtag to join the discussion.
