BACKGROUND Genetic factors have a substantial role in determining development of rheumatoid arthritis (RA), and are likely to account for 50-60% of disease susceptibility. Genome-wide association studies have identified non-human leucocyte antigen RA susceptibility loci which associate with RA with low-to-moderate risk. OBJECTIVES To investigate recently identified RA susceptibility markers using cohorts from six European countries, and perform a meta-analysis including previously published… CONTINUE READING
