Mouse models for rheumatoid arthritis

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) affects millions of people world wide causing considerable human suffering and large socioeconomic costs. Increased knowledge of pathological pathways involved in RA will enable development of modern drugs, with reduced side effects. The mouse models offer an attractive approach to dissect the genetic and molecular mechanisms of RA.
