For our next journal club activity, we’ll be teaming up with the Nephrology Journal Club #NephJC to discuss the PRECISION Trial, published in NEJM: Cardiovascular Safety of Celecoxib, Naproxen, or Ibuprofen for Arthritis by Nissen SE, et al. This article is open access via the NephJC blog post.

As many of you may recall, a portion of this data was presented during the #ACR16 late breaking abstract session: 1L: The Cardiovascular Safety of Celecoxib Versus Ibuprofen or Naproxen in 24,081 Patients with Osteoarthritis or Rheumatoid Arthritis.


Additional Details:

  • For this session, we’ll plan on using the #NephJC hashtag for the discussion, since they’ll be hosting the session.
  • As usual, we suggest using the website in your desktop web browser as the best way to participate in the chat.
