About Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disorder, that causes chronic inflammatory polyarthritis (arthritis that affects 5 or more joints) throughout the body. The inflammatory process causes painful swelling that can result in bone erosion and joint deformity. In addition to causing joint problems, it can affect other body organs. Rheumatoid arthritis can occur at any age, although it usually begins after age 40, and is more common in women than men. Treatment focuses on controlling symptoms and preventing joint damage. There is no cure, but new effective drugs are available to treat the disease and prevent deformed joints.
