It has been recently asserted that the nested case-control study design, in which case-control sets are sampled from cohort risk sets, can introduce bias (“study design bias”) when there are lagged exposures the bases for this claim include a theoretical and an “empirical evaluation” argument we examined both of these.

Despite the antiinflammatory and immunomodulatory properties of statins, observational studies on the risk of ra with statin exposure have yielded contradictory results [7-9] two population-based studies showed a reduced risk of ra with statin use [7, 9], while a case–control study showed an increased.
