Description

Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is a common, systemic autoimmune disease that 0.5-1.0% of the world population is affected. RA is characterized by chronic inflammation of the synovium which can lead to progressive joint destruction, disability and mortality. As joint damage is irreversible, early therapeutic intervention is of paramount importance for the prognosis of patients. The most frequent serological diagnostic testing is the measurement of rheumatoid factor (RF). The RF antibody is present in about 75% of RA patients, but its specificity is limited, as it is often present in healthy individuals and patients with other rheumatic or inflammatory diseases, autoimmune diseases or chronic infections.
