Rheumatoid Arthritis Therapeutics in Thailand
Date:4/6/2009

BANGKOK, April 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a systemic disease or an autoimmune disorder in which the body's defense system attacks the joints through the thin layer of cells called the synovium that lines and lubricates the joints. The most visible symptoms of RA are swollen joints and crippling stiffness, particularly of the hands and feet. It can cause fatigue, fever, loss of appetite and also impedes mobility and quality of life. RA cannot be confirmed or excluded by one single test. The diagnosis of RA is based on clinical examination of symptoms, patient history, blood tests, rheumatoid factor (RF), anti-cyclic citrullinated peptide (Anti-CCP), and X-ray.

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a relatively less common inflammatory arthritis, affecting about 4 per 1,000 individuals in Thailand. About four times as many women as men have the disease. Most of the patients fall between 30 to 40 years of age. In 2008, it is estimated that about 300,000 people with RA have been diagnosed and treated. In the absence of readily available studies to evaluate the prevalence and incidence of RA in Thailand, the prevalence is estimated to be approximately 0.4 percent. Incidence is assumed to be fairly close to the prevalence figures, as the disease is not common and new cases are not likely to impact the prevalence significantly. The incidence is likely to increase with the increase in awareness of the disease among both physicians as well as the population, and with the early diagnosis of the disease. Currently, physicians see more of moderate to severe cases, and in the future expect to tap patients in early stages, so as to prevent disability.
