Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Rheumatoid arthritis is a common chronic inflammatory disease affecting approximately 20 million people worldwide, with a tremendous impact on the quality of life of patients and significant costs for healthcare systems and society at large. Importantly, there are no cures. The increased utilisation of single-cell and spatial RNAseq has revealed new immunological pathways, but it has also highlighted the complexity of disease pathogenesis and the poor specificity of currently available treatments. While novel therapies, including CAR-T cells, have recently been proposed for the treatment of patients with RA, there is an urgent need for targeted therapeutic interventions and the identification of prognostic markers of responses to treatment. Therefore, we would like to invite the submission of primary research and review articles that utilise, expand, and validate recently identified, or propose new, molecular pathways that can be targeted in the treatment of patients with RA.

Dr. Achilleas Floudas
