Sammanfattning : Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a systemic disease not only restricted to the joints, but can also be associated with the development of extra-articular manifestations. Extra-articular RA (ExRA) is of clinical importance because of the associated morbidity and increased risk of premature mortality compared with RA patients in general. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Genetic as well as environmental factors are believed to be of importance in the etiology of rheumatoid arthritis (RA). There are a number of previous studies of genetic markers in RA, but so far no genetic linkage and only a few associations have been found. Of the associations only one (with the HLA antigen DR4) appears to be well documented. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Biologic therapies have revolutionized the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, a common chronic inflammatory disease, mainly characterized by the chronic inflammation of the joints. The activity and progression of the disease are highly variable, both between subjects and between the successive assessments for the same subject. LÄS MER
4. Disease activity in rheumatoid arthritis : Studies in interleukin-6, tumour necrosis factor alpha, monocyte activity, acute phase markers, glucocorticoids, and disability
Sammanfattning : In the present studies, aspects of some disease activity measures in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) have been investigated, including the effect of glucocorticoids on this activity. In RA, serum interleukin(IL)-6 levels were elevated and were shown to have a circadian rhythm, with peak levels in the morning, declining towards low or normal levels in the afternoon and evening.

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