Relationship of angiogenic factors to disease activity and radiographic damage in rheumatoid arthritis.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE To determine the association between angiogenic factor mRNA expression and disease activity and radiographic damage in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). METHODS We enrolled 42 RA patients and assessed their disease activity (DAS28) and Larsen scores. We used a semi-quantitative reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction to measure… (More)
