He was the convenor of several EULAR Task Forces about Cardiovascular disease risk management in patients inflammatory joint disorders. Dr. Nurmohamed has conducted many phase I – IV clinical investgiations with biologicals/tsDMARDs, COXIBs/NSAIDs, and antithrombotic agents and in rheumatoid arthritis, Bechterew's disease and psoriatic arthritis. There remains a need for increasing awareness and early diagnosis of the spondylarthropathies and therefore some of my PhD students are working in this field. Furthermore, there is still an unmet need for increasing the awareness cardiovascular comorbidities in SpA patients. As cardiovascular diseases are of the most important comorbidities in ankylosing spondylitis, more attention for this topic is urgently required. Furthermore, implementation of cardiovascular risk management in our daily clinical practice is warranted to lessen the cardiovascular disease burden of our patients and thus improve outcome of the disease. Dr. Nurmohamed has (co)authored over 400 publications, is a regular reviewer for several international journals and an editorial board member of Annals of Rheumatic Diseases , Arthritis Research Therapy, Journal of Rheumatology, The Open Rheumatology Journal and PlosOne.
