[Editorial] A platinum age for rheumatology

On June 14–17, over 14 000 rheumatologists, health-care professionals, and patients will gather in Madrid, Spain, for the European League Against Rheumatism (EULAR) Annual Congress. 2017 is a particularly special year for the organisation as EULAR celebrates its 70th anniversary. Since our inception, The Lancet has been pleased to have shared in the rich history of rheumatology research, including The “Rheumatic Disease”, coauthored by the founding President of EULAR, Mathius Pierre Weil, in 1928 and today’s issue, which highlights recent and innovative developments in therapeutics and management strategies for rheumatic diseases.
