ROMERO SAEZ, Mónica et al. New markers in the diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis. Rev Cubana Invest Bioméd [online]. 2006, vol.25, n.2. ISSN 0864-0300.

A review of other diagnostic  markers for rheumatoid arthritis, one of the commonest autoimmune systemic diseases, was made. It is widely spread all over the world. It mainly affects women and it is very aggressive among black people. Its early diagnosis is of vital importance to prevent the characteristic  joint deformities and to improve the patients’ quality of life. At present, it is diagnosed according to the classification criteria defined by the American Rheumatism Association, among them, the detection of the rheumatoid factor. It is known that it is not pathognomonic of the disease, since it may be present in other entities. A review of other sexological markers that are associated with rheumatoid arthritis and that are much more specific was made, so that their use could be considered in the early diagnosis of this disease,
