BACKGROUND Previous studies have reported the association between the development of NS1-specific IgG and arthropathy after the infection of human parvovirus B19 (B19). However, the role of anti-B19-NS1 IgG in RA is still unclear. This study investigated the role of anti-B19-NS1 antibody in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). METHODS B19-VP IgM and IgG antibodies, nested PCR, B19-NS1 IgM and IgG antibodies, and anti-cyclic citrullinated peptide (CCP) antibodies were assessed by ELISA and… CONTINUE READING
