Research has shown that rheumatoid arthritis is a common arthritis disease affecting people of all ages. Rheumatoid arthritis is a disease that attacks symmetrical joints, through antibodies that attack tissue, muscles, tendons and the synovium tissue. Science has not provided a long term treatment, but short terms management treatments exist as continued research is carried on the disease.

Diagnosis testing is also difficult with the varied changes in attacks, but recent tests are looking out for rheumatoid factor in the blood, comparing it with antibodies like IgG, IgA and IgM. Blood tests, CRP, ESR tests and x-ray examinations are also carried out to prove the existence and progress of the disease in patients. Research has proven that early treatment and diagnosis are the best in the management of the disease with various therapies like DMARD, being recommended and with biological therapies like golimumab, etanercept, rituximab being used.
