*Only submissions for IAAM's classification of Autoimmune Arthritis diseases may be submitted for this hotline. IAAM has worked with a Rheumatology Board to solidify a list of diseases we will classify as Autoimmune Arthritis. Currently these diseases include:
Systemic Lupus Erythematosis
Mixed Connective Tissue Disease
Undifferentiated Connective Tissue Diseases/Spondyloarthopathy
*Autoimmune Arthritis a term used by scientists and researchers dating back to the 1980's and coined by IAAM in 2009 in an attempt to differentiate primary joint diseases with an autoimmune component from other degenerative joint and autoimmune conditions. By using updated, and more politically correct language, IAAM hopes to promote better understanding of these diseases, as well as earlier detection, referrals, diagnosis, and treatments.
