Vascular involvement in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is associated with a wide range of extra-articular complications. Damage to internal organs occurs through a widespread disorder of the microvasculature. Vasculitis, as an integral part of the disease process, is associated with immune system abnormalities. To evaluate the relationship between capillaroscopic abnormalities, extra-articular involvement and immunological alterations, serum levels of soluble CD4 (sCD4), CD8 (sCD8), tumour necrosis… CONTINUE READING
