    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

    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. Disease activity, function and costs in early rheumatoid arthritis

    Abstract : Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a major cause of progressive joint damage and disability, and is associated with decline in quality of life, reduced ability to work and increased health care utilisation. The economic consequences of the disease are substantial for the individuals and their families and for the society as a whole. READ MORE

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

    Author : Linda Johansson; Solbritt Rantapää Dahlqvist; Mikael Brink; Felipe Andrade; Umeå universitet; []

    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

  5. 5. Systemic lupus erythematosus and rheumatoid arthritis : analyses of candidate genes involved in immune functions, for susceptibility and severity

    Abstract : Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is an autoimmune rheumatic disease with systemic manifestations characterized by auto-antibodies directed against different parts of the cell nucleus including DNA, histones and ribosomes. The systemic inflammation can cause damage to multiple organs, e.g., kidneys, skin, heart, lungs and the nervous system. READ MORE
