Deactivating a cell protein may halt progress of rheumatoid arthritis
from Medical News Today
Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease that leads to inflammation and bone erosion in the joints. One of the hallmarks is swelling and pain caused by white blood cells flooding into the fluid around the joints. Now researchers have shown for the first time that the activation of a single protein on the surface of these cells could be the trigger for the disease.
