In a session at EULAR 2017 providing insights into juvenile idiopathic arthritis heterogeneity, EPOCA data were presented suggesting that geographic variability in JIA epidemiology, treatment, and outcomes may go some way to explaining it, while research deciphering the biologic basis of the condition could help combat it.
