Using epidemiology and archaeology to unearth new drug targets for rheumatoid arthritis therapy

, : Using epidemiology and archaeology to unearth new drug targets for rheumatoid arthritis therapy. Drug Discovery Today 11(1-2): 4-7

Epidemiological and archaeological evidence suggests that RA could be a consequence of enhanced immunity to Mycobacterium tuberculosis, and that by understanding this connection, new RA drug targets may be uncovered.
