|Abstract:||There is high level evidence (meta-analysis of randomized, controlled trials) for symptomatic benefits from fish oil use in rheumatoid arthritis, and there is biologic plausibility for its clinical effects. Fish oil also has safety advantages in reducing cardiovascular risk via direct cardiovascular effects and via nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug-sparing. This is an important aspect of fish oil use, given the increased cardiovascular risk in rheumatoid arthritis. Perceived barriers to clinical use are readily addressed.|
