This week we discuss a head to head trial of Abatacept (Orencia) vs. adalimumab (Humira) as monotherapy in rheumatoid arthritis. Discuss the suicide of Aaron Swartz in the context of academic publishing, share a few apps we use to calculate DAS scores, and unanimously recommend Dropbox to everyone.
