Gene context of Spondylarthritis

  • OBJECTIVE: There is increasing evidence that tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNFalpha) is centrally involved in the pathogenesis of ankylosing spondylitis (AS) and other spondylarthritides [13].
  • The aim of this study was to compare the frequency of C282Y in patients with rheumatoid arthritis with that in patients with different forms of spondylarthritis and to correlate these findings with iron metabolism parameters [14].
