Rheumatic arthritis (RA) is a chronic systemic autoimmune disease epitomizing inflammation and permanent damage of the joints. Early treatment in RA is important as it can prevent disease progression and irreversible damage of the joints. Effective diagnosis and treatment of the disease is a challenge due to its heterogeneity.
