Determination of Serological Profile of Rheumatoid Arthritis in a Tertiary Care Hospital
Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune-based inflammatory illness that affects joints and causes stiffness and pain in the morning, as well as loss of function. It mainly affects women over the age of 30. The current study comprised 150 Rheumatoid Arthritis patients, 120 of whom were females and 30 of whom were males (F:M=4:1). In these cases, serological testing were performed. The sensitivity and specificity of these tests were evaluated. The outcomes of a combination of several tests were also evaluated. The purpose of this study is to determine the age and gender of participants. patient with Rheumatoid Arthritis; and to see if a combination of serological testing will improve specificity. as evidenced by fm The greatest specificity was 89.8% in the quantitative Rheumatoidfactor estimate and Anti Rheumatoid antibodies assay. Rather than relying on a single diagnostic test, a mix of serological testing is recommended. This enables for the early detection of Rheumatoid Arthritis and the prevention of disease consequences.
