Project: Identification of synovial autoantigens in chronic autoimmuun arthritis, with focus on citrullianted synovial proteins
- project duration
- 01-JAN-05 – 31-DEC-08
- In this project, we intend to identify and characterise disease-specific autoreactivities against synovial antigens whithin patients with chronic arthritis. It is plausible that these molecules play an important role in the induction of rheumatoid arthritis and spondalylarthropathy. A focus in this research project will be on synovial citrullinated proteins.
