Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) causes joint inflammation, pain, and increasing disability over time.

The underlying mechanism involves the body’s immune system attacking the joints.
It is estimated that there are 17.6 million people having rheumatoid arthritis worldwide, while 1.5 million are living with this condition in the US.
