Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and type 1 diabetes (T1D) are two autoimmune disorders that have been reported to co-occur in the same subjects or in different subjects from the same family. This suggests the sharing of disease susceptibility loci between RA and T1D. This study was aimed to find out such susceptibility loci that are common in both T1D and RA in Pakistani population.
