[Comment] Is it time for treat to target in psoriatic arthritis?

With the emergence of effective treatments for inflammatory arthritis, the new concept of treat to target has evolved. Treat to target is defined as “a treatment strategy in which the clinician treats the patient aggressively enough to reach and maintain explicitly specified and sequentially measured goals, such as remission or low disease activity”.1 A proactive clear endpoint, which is the aim of the treatment, should be used as a specific target algorithm. This endpoint should be supported by findings from randomised controlled trials which suggest that early aggressive treatment approaches are advantageous.
