Rheumatoid Arthritis Cause

Rheumatoid arthritis cause in yet to be found out. It is thaught that the disease is caused by a infection in a person who is already genetically inclined to get the disease. As the disease is present world wide hence the infecting organism must be present every where.

The organisms that may be responsible include

  • cytomegalovirus
  • Epstein-Barr virus
  • Parvovirus
  • Rubella virus
  • Mycoplasma

Evidence linking the above organisms with the disease is yet to be found by researchers.

Hormonal, environmental and genetic factors are also being researched.

I hope the information provided was helpful. If you have any query you can ask me at the contact me page.

Testimonials

My compliments to you and your website. It provides the necessary knowledge and guide to bridge the gap caused by the bits of (mis)information given on most sites. Your website provides a short course on the subject. It not only guides the user, it also provides fundamental knowledge for researching the topic. Giving the user a remarkable and unmatched understanding of their topic. An ounce of knowledge makes for a better patient. I've been longing for a website such as yours. A website that is filled with information a layman can use. Its Not too complicated that it discourages the user.

Thank You for bridging the gap for me and for everyone else.
