A generalised reduction in delayed cutaneous hypersensitivity to 7 recall antigens were found in 104 RA patients compared with 67 controls. No measured of the disease was capable of predicting cutaneous anergy, which was present in 36% of patients but none of the controls. A detailed dietary assessment in 30 RA patients and 30 controls revealed little evidence… CONTINUE READING
