OBJECTIVE To improve the understanding of the pathogenesis of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) by identifying novel, disease specific autoantibodies. METHODS Total protein preparations from synovial membranes were separated electrophoretically and immunoblotted. Sera from RA patients were screened for predominant immunoreactions by blotting. A 68 kDa antigen… CONTINUE READING
