    Abstract : Background. Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune inflammatory disease that, without powerful treatment, may lead to irreversible joint damage. During the past decade, anti-cytokine therapy has become available, e.g. READ MORE

  2. 2. Presence of immunological markers preceding the onset of rheumatoid arthritis

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå Universitet

    Author : Mikael Brink; Umeå universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; autoantibodies; rheumatoid arthritis; anti citrullinated protein antibodies; pre-symptomatic individual; immunologi; Immunology; reumatologi; rheumatology;

    Abstract : Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic inflammatory disease with an unknown aetiology characterized by joint destruction. Both genetic and environmental factors contribute to the disease development with HLA-DRB1* alleles and smoking identified as most important. READ MORE

  3. 3. Insights into the processes preceding the onset of rheumatoid arthritis

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå University

    Author : Linda Johansson; Umeå universitet.; [2018]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; rheumatoid arthritis; pre-symptomatic individuals; autoantibodies; anti-citrullinated protein peptides antibodies; Epstein-barr virus; neutrophil extracellular traps; periodontitis; Porphyromonas gingivalis; receptor activator of nuclear factor kappa-B ligand; reumatologi; rheumatology;

    Abstract : Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic inflammatory disease, characterized by the production of anti-citrullinated protein antibodies (ACPA) in the majority of all patients and a persistent inflammation in the synovial tissue leading to joint destruction. The aetiology of RA remains to a large extent unknown but is believed to be a complex interplay between genetic, environmental and stochastic factors. READ MORE

  4. 4. On diet in ankylosing spondylitis

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Björn Sundström; Umeå universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; diet; ankylosing spondylitits; omega-3; cardiovascular; reumatologi; rheumatology;

    Abstract : The aim of this thesis was to examine the role of diet in ankylosing spondylitis (AS). Patients were examined in: i) a postal questionnaire survey of dietary habits and gastrointestinal (GI) symptoms; ii) a study on biomarkers of diet and disease activity; iii) a comparison of cardiovascular risk factors with the general population using data from the Västerbotten Intervention Programme (VIP), and; iv) a 21-week omega-3 fatty acid supplementation study regarding the effects on disease activity.

  5. 5. Genetic studies in rheumatoid arthritis familial studies and analysis of relationships to atherothrombotic comorbidity

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå Universitet

    Author : Lisbeth Ärlestig; Umeå universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Rheumatoid arthritis; genetics; familial studies; ACPA and cardiovascular co-morbidity; reumatologi; rheumatology; genetik; Genetics; cardiovascular disease; hjärt- och kärlforskning;

    Abstract : Background. Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune disease mainly affecting the joints but has also extra articular manifestations and an increased cardiovascular (CV) co-morbidity. Rheumatoid factor (RF) and antibodies against citrullinated proteins/peptides (ACPA) are diagnostically important and are related to a more severe disease. READ MORE
