In this video, Dr. Paget and Dr. Klareskog discuss the origins, evolution, and “personality” of rheumatoid arthritis, both clinically and immunologically. They touch upon subjects such as the interaction of the “triad” of genes, environmental factors, and the immune system in RA; the role of viruses in the condition; the link between certain genes, smoking, and RA; the “window of opportunity” when diagnosing and treating the disease; and much more.
