About Rheumatoid ArthritisRheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a systemic, chronic autoimmune disease characterized by inflammation in the lining of joints (or synovium), causing joint damage with chronic pain, stiffness, swelling and fatigue. RA causes limited range of motion and decreased function as a result of affected joints losing their shape and alignment.

RA affects about 1 percent of the world's population, including more than 1 million people in the United States. The condition is more common in women than in men, who account for 75 percent of patients diagnosed with RA.
