Biomarkers for rheumatoid arthritis

Biomarker für rheumatoide arthritis

Biomarqueurs pour la polyarthrite rhumatoïde


The present invention relates to the diagnosis of autoimmune disorders, more specifically to the diagnosis of rheumatoid disorders, chronic autoimmune arthritis and even more specifically to the diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis. A biomarker panel is provided which can be used to detect if a subject has rheumatoid arthritis. Also described are methods of identification of such biomarkers.
