What New Rheumatoid Arthritis Research Means for You
For the 1.5 million Americans living with rheumatoid arthritis, recent research is worth watching.
Answers about the genetics of this autoimmune disease have been hard to come by. But by studying genetic variations, researchers in England have started to answer important questions: Can we predict the severity of rheumatoid arthritis? Can we predict how patients will respond to aggressive treatment?
There’s more work to be done. But there’s also reason to hope that genetic understanding of rheumatoid arthritis is coming.
