Relative serum amyloid A (SAA) values: the influence of SAA1 genotypes and corticosteroid treatment in Japanese patients with rheumatoid arthritis.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES (1) To determine whether serum concentration of serum amyloid A (SAA) protein is influenced by the SAA1 allele in Japanese patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) as previously shown in a healthy control group; and (2) to analyse what factors, based on such an allelic bias, influence the relative SAA values of those patients. METHODS SAA and C… (More)
