Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic disease in which inflammatory changes occur throughout the connective tissues of the body. Rheumatoid arthritis usually first attacks joints of the hands and feet symmetrically before progressing to the wrists, knees, or shoulders; the onset of the disorder is gradual. Pain and stiffness in one or more small joints are usually followed by swelling and heat and are accompanied by muscle pain that may become worse, persist for weeks or months, or subside. Rheumatoid arthritis is about three times as common in women as in men and afflicts about 1 percent of the adult population in the developed nations; it is much less common than osteoarthritis, which is associated with aging.

Scope and Importance:
Rheumatoid Arthritis Conference provides the scope for opportunities to learn progressed by international scientists and academicians. Rheumatoid Arthritis Conference offers excessive quality content to suit the diverse professional development of these medicines to treat people all over the globe. It is a perfect platform to discuss the current discoveries and developments in the field of Rheumatology. Diagnosis of RA involves the Physical exam and radiographs as it is an auto immune disease it affects the autoimmunity. Among the developed countries USA UK arthritis is a common problem. Women’s are more likely to get RA due to hormones and hereditary and life style. The causes for RA are not exactly known but genetic factors are expected to play a major role. Vitamin D deficiency is also found to be common with those with RA than without RA.
Rheumatoid Arthritis is an autoimmune disease that causes chronic inflammation of the joints. Autoimmune diseases are illnesses that occur when the body's tissues are mistakenly attacked by their own immune system. The immune system contains a complex organization of cells and antibodies designed normally to "seek and destroy" invaders of the body, particularly infections. Patients with autoimmune diseases have antibodies and immune cells in their blood that target their own body tissues, where they can be associated with inflammation. Rheumatoid Arthritis conference aims to bring together leading academic scientists, researchers and research scholars to exchange and share their experiences and research results about all aspects of:
1. Rheumatoid Arthritis
3. Septic arthritis
It also provides the platform for researchers, scholars and educators to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, and concerns, practical challenges encountered and the solutions adopted in the field of Rheumatology.
Rheumatoid arthritis an auto immune disease that results in chronic, systemic inflammatory disorder that may affect many tissues and organs but principally attacks the synovial joints. It may leads to disabling and loss of functioning if not adequately treated. Primarily it involves an inflammatory response of the capsule around the synovium and leads to swelling of synovial cells and development of Pannus (unwanted tissue layer) in the joint. This process finally leads to the destruction of articular cartilage and Ankylosis (stiffness of the joint due to the abnormal adhesion). It also produces inflammation in the lungs and leads to Pericardium (membrane around the heart).
Rheumatoid Arthritis is an autoimmune disease that mainly attacks the synovial tissues around the joints. Out of every 100,000 people, 41 are diagnosed with Rheumatoid arthritis every year. The life time risk of developing rheumatoid arthritis is 4% in women and 3% in men. Global rheumatoid arthritis market is driven by increase in incidences of RA patients, global ageing population and increasing healthcare expenditure by government of various nations. Factors which are affecting pharmaceutical companies are pricing pressure, patent expiries of RA drugs, high costs of treatments involved and escalating R&D costs. The market is characterized by use of auto-injectors by patients for RA treatment, increase in RA cases in women and FDA approvals for RA drugs. The market for Rheumatoid arthritis therapeutics is expected to increase from $56.6 billion in 2013 to $80.7 billion in 2020, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 5.2%. The global Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) treatment market is expected to increase in value, from $14.3 billion in 2013 to just over $19 billion by 2020, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 4.1% according to GBI research. According to 2013 more than 1.3 million of US population has RA which stands in third place following Oestoarthritis and Gout. Rheumatoid Arthritis is mostly a female dominant disease as most commonly seen in women’s. There are 2.5 times as many as women as there are men with RA. RA can occur in any part of life but mostly occurs in fourth and fifth decades of life.
