Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic, systemic
autoimmune disease characterised by persistent
inflammation of synovial joints, often leading to joint
destruction and disability. The major goals of treatment
are to relieve pain, reduce inflammation, slow down
or stop joint damage, prevent disability, and preserve
or improve the patient’s sense of wellbeing and ability
to function.
