Unfor- 34 Targeting DMARD therapy tunately, the best marker of response remains observation through trial and error. In general, for most patients, response to a DMARD occurs within the first months of therapy, and it is unlikely that a patient will respond favorably if there has been no benefit after a trial of a few months. Although not sufficiently predictive, some markers have been associated with the likelihood of response. Rheumatoid factor is not conclusively related to clinical response to DMARDs, but observational cohort studies, in which invariably all patients are treated, show that patients with positive RF have worse outcomes, especially radiological, which indirectly suggests that response to DMARDs is weaker in seropositive patients.
