Special Issue "Systemic Manifestations and Complications of Rheumatoid Arthritis"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2021.
Interests: rheumatoid arthritis; systemic lupus erythematosus; autoimmunity; osteoporosis; biomarker; targeted treatment
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a systemic autoimmune disease predominantly involving small joints and causing joint deformity and functional loss. In addition, systemic manifestations, such as pulmonary, cardiovascular, and neurologic involvement, are commonly developed in RA patients with severe inflammation or long-standing disease duration. With adequate treatment to control inflammation, some of these complications of RA can be prevented. However, the treatment of RA also produces complications, such as cardiovascular, musculosketal, infectious, and neurologic problems. The knowledge of these complications as they develop in patients with RA is important in order to enable prevention and treatment. The Special Issue on “Systemic Manifestations and Complications of Rheumatoid Arthritis” is now open to your contributions. We look forward to your work on the diagnostic, preventive, and therapeutic aspect of various complications in patients with RA.
