Summaries for Rheumatoid Arthritis

Genetics Home Reference : 25 Rheumatoid arthritis is a disease that causes chronic abnormal inflammation, primarily affecting the joints. The most common signs and symptoms are pain, swelling, and stiffness of the joints. Small joints in the hands and feet are involved most often, although larger joints (such as the shoulders, hips, and knees) may become involved later in the disease. Joints are typically affected in a symmetrical pattern; for example, if joints in the hand are affected, both hands tend to be involved. People with rheumatoid arthritis often report that their joint pain and stiffness is worse when getting out of bed in the morning or after a long rest. Rheumatoid arthritis can also cause inflammation of other tissues and organs, including the eyes, lungs, and blood vessels. Additional signs and symptoms of the condition can include a loss of energy, a low fever, weight loss, and a shortage of red blood cells (anemia). Some affected individuals develop rheumatoid nodules, which are firm lumps of noncancerous tissue that can grow under the skin and elsewhere in the body. The signs and symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis usually appear in mid- to late adulthood. Many affected people have episodes of symptoms (flares) followed by periods with no symptoms (remissions) for the rest of their lives. In severe cases, affected individuals have continuous health problems related to the disease for many years. The abnormal inflammation can lead to severe joint damage, which limits movement and can cause significant disability.

MalaCards based summary : Rheumatoid Arthritis, also known as ra, is related to arthritis and palindromic rheumatism, and has symptoms including back pain, sciatica and muscle cramp. An important gene associated with Rheumatoid Arthritis is PTPN22 (Protein Tyrosine Phosphatase Non-Receptor Type 22), and among its related pathways/superpathways are Rheumatoid arthritis and NF-kappaB Signaling. The drugs Bazedoxifene and Dimethyl fumarate have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include Cartilage, joint and bone, and related phenotypes are abnormality of the immune system and vasculitis

Disease Ontology : 12 An arthritis that is an autoimmune disease which attacks healthy cells and tissue located in joint.

OMIM : 56 Rheumatoid arthritis is an inflammatory disease, primarily of the joints, with autoimmune features and a complex genetic component. (180300)

MedlinePlus : 42 Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a form of arthritis that causes pain, swelling, stiffness and loss of function in your joints. It can affect any joint but is common in the wrist and fingers. More women than men get rheumatoid arthritis. It often starts in middle age and is most common in older people. You might have the disease for only a short time, or symptoms might come and go. The severe form can last a lifetime. Rheumatoid arthritis is different from osteoarthritis, the common arthritis that often comes with older age. RA can affect body parts besides joints, such as your eyes, mouth and lungs. RA is an autoimmune disease, which means the arthritis results from your immune system attacking your body's own tissues. No one knows what causes rheumatoid arthritis. Genes, environment, and hormones might contribute. Treatments include medicine, lifestyle changes, and surgery. These can slow or stop joint damage and reduce pain and swelling. NIH: National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases

CDC : 3 Rheumatoid arthritis, or RA, is an autoimmune and inflammatory disease, which means that your immune system attacks healthy cells in your body by mistake, causing inflammation (painful swelling) in the affected parts of the body. RA mainly attacks the joints, usually many joints at once. RA commonly affects joints in the hands, wrists, and knees. In a joint with RA, the lining of the joint becomes inflamed, causing damage to joint tissue. This tissue damage can cause long-lasting or chronic pain, unsteadiness (lack of balance), and deformity (misshapenness). RA can also affect other tissues throughout the body and cause problems in organs such as the lungs, heart, and eyes.

KEGG : 36 Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a common autoimmune disease that primarily manifests as chronic inflammatory arthropathy. Persistent synovitis leads to cartilage destruction, bone erosions and periarticular decalcification, subsequently resulting in impaired joint function. It is more common between the ages of 35 and 50 years, affecting three times more women than men. Susceptibility to RA is genetically determined with multiple genes contributing. Inheritance of HLA DRB1 alleles encoding a distinctive five-amino-acid sequence known as the "shared epitope" (SE) is the best characterized genetic risk factor. The mechanism by which the SE alleles contribute to the development of RA is not very clear. It has been postulated that the presence of these conserved sequences in the antigen-binding groove alters the way antigenic peptides are bound to and presented to T-cell lymphocytes. This, in turn, may trigger abnormal immune responses and lead to RA.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot : 73 Rheumatoid arthritis: An inflammatory disease with autoimmune features and a complex genetic component. It primarily affects the joints and is characterized by inflammatory changes in the synovial membranes and articular structures, widespread fibrinoid degeneration of the collagen fibers in mesenchymal tissues, and by atrophy and rarefaction of bony structures.

PubMed Health : 62 About rheumatoid arthritis: There are many different rheumatic diseases, but rheumatoid arthritis is probably the most common. In rheumatoid arthritis, people usually have several permanently inflamed joints. This causes the joints to gradually become deformed and stiff. Over time the muscles also weaken. Someone with advanced rheumatoid arthritis may have difficulties with simple tasks such as washing themselves, eating with a knife and fork, or buttoning up a shirt. Other symptoms such as pain and fatigue can be very troublesome too. This disease can also affect other parts of the body, like the blood vessels or certain organs. Rheumatoid arthritis usually gradually worsens over the course of many years. Various treatments can relieve the pain and slow the progression of the disease. Early diagnosis and treatment can help to prevent damage to the joints.

Drugs & Therapeutics for Rheumatoid Arthritis

PubMed Health treatment related to Rheumatoid Arthritis: 62

Rheumatoid arthritis is treated with both medication and non-drug approaches, such as physiotherapy . There are also various support aids available for making everyday tasks easier. Which of these treatments are suitable options will depend on, for example, how severe the inflammation and the symptoms are, how advanced the disease is, the expected progression of the disease – and how well previous treatments have worked. Medication can reduce inflammation and help keep the disease from getting worse, relieve symptoms like pain and swelling, and help people move their joints more easily again, or at least maintain joint flexibility for as long as possible. There is currently no cure for rheumatoid arthritis . Physiotherapy and sports can help improve or maintain flexibility, strength and joint function. Many types of sports are suitable for people who have rheumatoid arthritis , including cycling, brisk walking, dancing, aerobics, strength training , swimming and water aerobics. Occupational therapy can be used to maintain your flexibility and hand strength, and to learn how to cope with rheumatoid arthritis in everyday life. Psychological treatments are also sometimes used to help relieve pain and minimize the impact it has on everyday life. They are also intended to help relieve disease-related anxiety and depression that some people develop. Support aids are designed to help compensate for physical limitations and help with daily activities. These include orthopedic shoe inserts, grabbing aids and specially designed cutlery.
