Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease that occurs when immune cells attack the cartilage and bone of the joints. The disease affects roughly 1.4 percent of the global population. A common symptom is joint pain, but even before that, the body has started to produce immune antibodies against proteins in the joint. Scientists at Karolinska Institute in Sweden, have now discovered  how th...
