The Canadian Early Arthritis Cohort (also called CATCH for short) is a research study happening at many places in Canada and that seeks to improve the quality of care for people living with early inflammatory arthritis. There are over 3,300 participants in CATCH who make it possible – some have even been part of CATCH for over 10 years! CATCH is the only national early arthritis study that is following people over time and watching their arthritis and its response to treatments.

Each year, CATCH’s research team presents research results at rheumatology conferences. This document is a summary of their most recent presentations for you in easy to understand language.
