Late Breaking Abstracts


APLAR-ARA 2019 aim to present the best new scientific research in all areas of rheumatology. The Program Committee recognises that the results of some exciting research may not be available by the general abstract submission deadline.

APLAR-ARA 2019 will offer the possibility to submit late breaking abstracts, providing an opportunity to communicate the most recent clinical and scientific breakthroughs

Please note that this abstract submission is solely for abstracts with late breaking data and not for abstracts submitted “late”. Any “late” abstracts will be rejected outright.

In order to fulfil the criteria for a late breaking abstract, when prompted during submission, you must enter the reasons why your abstract is a late breaking abstract. Failure to do so will mean that the abstract will not be submitted.

All accepted late breaking abstract presenters must register and pay to attend APLAR-ARA 2019 congress by Friday 18 January 2019 otherwise the abstract will not be published in the International Journal of Rheumatic Diseases.
