Objectives: To compare 10-year disease outcomes of RA patients who have continuous low disease activity and are on MTX with or without initial combination therapy with infliximab or prednisone and SSZ.
 
Methods: Recent-onset RA patients from the Behandel Strategieen (BeSt) (Dutch acronym for Treatment Strategies) study with 10 years of follow-up were analysed. Treatment was tightly controlled, targeted at DAS ⩽ 2.4. The selected patients had low disease activity from 6 months until 10 years and therefore did not intensify treatment.
