Combined influence of genetic and environmental factors in age of rheumatoid arthritis onset
TLDR
The combined effect of both genetic and environmental factors in the age of rheumatoid arthritis onset and the additive effect of shared epitope, anti-CCP antibodies, educational level, PTPN22, and STAT4 polymorphisms in age at onset are described.
Immunodominant T‐cell epitopes of hnRNP‐A2 associated with disease activity in patients with rheumatoid arthritis
TLDR
The presence of 117/120–133‐specific T cells was significantly associated with active disease in RA patients, and bone erosion appeared to be more common in T‐cell positive patients, which suggest involvement of hnRNP‐A2 specific cellular autoimmune responses in RA pathogenesis.
Anti-cyclic citrullinated peptide-2 (CCP2) autoantibodies and extra-articular manifestations in Greek patients with rheumatoid arthritis
TLDR
In Greek patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA), high serum anti-CCP2 antibodies are associated with serositis and pulmonary fibrosis and have prognostic significance in patients with RA.
Anti‐centromere antibodies as a marker of Raynaud's phenomenon in pediatric rheumatologic diseases
TLDR
ACA are probably among the markers of Raynaud's phenomenon in pediatric rheumatologic diseases and their value as predictors of future development of the phenomenon needs further evaluation.
Dietary factors in relation to rheumatoid arthritis: a role for olive oil and cooked vegetables?
TLDR
Consumption of both cooked vegetables and olive oil was inversely and independently associated with risk of RA in this population and further research is needed to elucidate the underlying mechanisms of this finding.
HLA-DRB1 alleles in Greek rheumatoid arthritis patients and their association with clinical characteristics.
TLDR
The association of certain HLA-DRB1 alleles in Green rheumatoid arthritis patients with several features of the disease, the gender of the patient and the age at onset was investigated and Hla-DR4 was significantly increased in RA patients.
