  1. 1. Predictors of disease onset and progression in early rheumatoid arthritis : A clinical, laboratory and radiological study

    Författare :Ewa Berglin; Solbritt Rantapää-Dahlqvist; Thomas Skogh; Umeå universitet; []

    Sammanfattning : To diagnose rheumatoid arthritis (RA) during the early stages of the disease is often difficult. The disease course shows great inter-individual variation from mild, self-limiting to very severe destruc-tive disease with extra-articular manifestations. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Prediction of disease progression in early rheumatoid arthritis. A study of some imaging and laboratory variables

    Författare :Kristina Forslind; Lund Institutionen för kliniska vetenskaper; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; rheumatology locomotion; Skelett; muskelsystem; reumatologi; muscle system; Skeleton; Rheumatoid arthritis; MRI; Reduced bone mass; Disease prediction; Anti-CCP; DEXA DXA;

    Sammanfattning : Objective: To investigate the role of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), assessment of bone mineral density (BMD) and antibodies to citrullinated proteins (anti-CCP) in predicting radiologic outcome in patients with early rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Patients: All patients were included in the BARFOT programme (baseline). LÄS MER

  3. 3. Rheumatoid Arthritis in a 10-Year Perspective, Outcome for Patients Followed from Early Disease

    Författare :Elisabet Lindqvist; Reumatologi och molekylär skelettbiologi; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; reumatologi; muskelsystem; rheumatology locomotion; Skelett; COMP; Skeleton; muscle system; Anti-IL-1alpha; Anti-CCP; Rheumatoid factor isotypes; Mortality; Radiographic progression; Joint damage; Disease activity; HAQ; SOFI; Disability; Prognosis; Rheumatoid arthritis; Outcome;

    Sammanfattning : Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is characterized by persistent inflammation, progressive joint damage and disability. This thesis describes the outcome after 10 years in a cohort of 183 RA patients (116 women, 67 men) recruited 1985-89. The mean age was 51 years and symptom duration 11 months at inclusion. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Circulating and Mucosal Antibodies to Citrullinated Antigens in Rheumatoid Arthritis

    Författare :Anna Svärd; Thomas Skogh; Alf Kastbom; Carl Turesson; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :;

    Sammanfattning : Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune disease characterized by joint inflammation and subsequent destruction of cartilage and bone. The etiology is largely unknown, although genetic as well as environmental factors are involved. The manifestations and consequences of RA differ between individuals. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Cigarette smoking and silica exposure as determinants for the development of rheumatoid arthritis

    Författare :Patrik Stolt; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :;

    Sammanfattning : Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune, inflammatory disease with obscure etiology. This thesis is based on the hypothesis, that there is a link between respiratory exposures and the development of RA. LÄS MER
