Genetic typing of patients with inflammatory arthritis at presentation can be used to predict outcome.

Abstract:

OBJECTIVE: To test the hypothesis that genetic characterization of patients at the time they present with inflammatory arthritis can predict subsequent destructive disease. METHODS: We evaluated 177 patients with early arthritis. Patients were serologically tested for rheumatoid factor (RF) and were DNA oligotyped for the presence of conserved base sequences in the third hypervariable region (HVR3) of the DRB1 gene, previously shown to be associated with severe rheumatoid arthritis (RA).
