Abstract
Patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA), particularly those with severe disease, have increased risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD). Previous studies suggest that endothelial cell activation may contribute to this co-morbidity, and that treatment with tumour necrosis factor (TNF) inhibitors could reduce the risk of CVD in these patients. The aim of this study was to investigate endothelial cell activation markers in muscle tissue of patients after adalimumab treatment.
