Relative importance of genetic effects in rheumatoid arthritis
Actually, this study shows the relatively “un” importance of genetics. While I do believe that genetics plays a role in development of this condition, I feel that (much like most other chronic diseases), it is the environment that we plunge these genes into. Given this study’s findings, should we not reconsider the barrage of pharmaceuticals given RA patients (despite lack of impact on long term disease progression) in lieu of lifestyle changes?
