Clinical practice guidelines aid clinicians in providing optimal care for their patients. Over the past decade, treatment guidelines have been published for ankylosing spondylitis (AS), but there are no evidence-based recommendations for the management of axial spondyloarthritis. In 2003, Canadian rheumatologists published treatment recommendations for AS, which have been subsequently updated. More recently, in 2011, the Assessment of SpondyloArthritis international Society and the European League Against Rheumatism published recommendations for the management of AS. SPondyloArthritis Research and Treatment Network proposes an American College of Rheumatology-led effort to develop treatment recommendations for axial spondyloarthritis.
