Association of the RPA3-UMAD1 locus with interstitial lung diseases complicated with rheumatoid arthritis. (Yukinori Okada G, in Ann Rheum Dis)

It is known that the mortality rate of rheumatoid arthritis patients increases due to complications from interstitial pneumonia.

The research group led by Yukinori Okada (Graduate School of Medicine, Osaka University/Statistical Immunology, IFReC) performed genome-wide association analysis (GWAS) for the patients with rheumatoid arthritis. They showed a genetic polymorphism at risk for complication of interstitial pneumonia exists on the chromosome 7.
