As you know, rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic inflammatory autoimmune disease. Over the past few years, scientists have paid special attention to the close interaction of genetic and epigenetic mechanisms of the development of the disease. Research has focused on the effects of environmental factors, as well as the mechanisms of the innate and adaptive immune systems that can influence the various stages of RA. Coverage of various aspects of the pathogenesis of RA will help improve existing diagnostic methods of research and identify new opportunities for developing more specific points of application in the treatment of this serious disease.
