Summary

Evidenced-based texts are taking on a greater role in the education of healthcare providers. With an emphasis on this modality, this volume explores several topics related to the treatment of patients with the autoimmune form of arthritis known as rheumatoid arthritis. Topics include disease outcomes, leukocyte immunoglobulin-like receptors, cardiovascular risk associated with arthritis, cytokines, and alleles in rheumatoid arthritis. The book also examines various drugs used in treatment for pain relief and reduced inflammation.
