    Sammanfattning : 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. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Early rheumatoid arthritis : biomarkers and hormonal factors in relation to disease progression

    Författare :Antonia Boman; Solbritt Rantapää-Dahlqvist; Ewa Berglin; Gerd-Marie Alenius; Mikael Brink; Heidi Kokkonen; Inger Gjertsson; Umeå universitet; []

    Sammanfattning : Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic inflammatory joint disease, affecting approximately 0.5 to 1% of the adult population. Although the aetiology is not fully known, a complex interaction between genetic, environmental and stochastic factors is thought to trigger the pathogenic mechanisms. LÄS MER

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

    Författare :Mikael Brink; Solbritt Rantapää Dahlqvist; Anca Irinel Catrina; Umeå universitet; []

    Sammanfattning : 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. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Disease activity, function and costs in early rheumatoid arthritis

    Författare :Eva Hallert; Thomas Skogh; Jan Persson; Ronald van Vollenhoven; Linköpings universitet; []

    Sammanfattning : 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. LÄS MER

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

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

    Sammanfattning : 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. LÄS MER
