PURPOSE The aim of this study was to investigate the relation between plasma level of glutamate and extent of radiographic bone erosion of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) in patients with early rheumatoid arthritis (RA) in relation to inflammatory disease activity as well as estradiol and testosterone. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 47 patients (29 women and 18 men) of whom 24 were seropositive were included shortly after being diagnosed with RA. Radiographic signs of bone tissue… CONTINUE READING
