Mewar, D., Moore, D.J., Watson, P.F. and Wilson, A.G. (2005) Antibodies to ferritin in rheumatoid arthritis are associated with disease severity. In: 25th European Workshop for Rheumatology Research, 24-27 February 2005, Glasgow, UK.
A number of autoantibodies have been described in individuals with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) leading to interest in their use as diagnostic or prognostic markers in RA as well as their pathogenic relevance. By immunoscreening of a phage-display expression cloning system with RA patient sera we isolated a cDNA clone encoding the ferritin H chain polypeptide. The objectives of this study were to establish the frequency and clinical associations of anti-ferritin antibodies in RA.
