Do you know if some relationships have already been described between
rheumatoid arthritis (revelead in a young lady, about 25 y.old) and an
allergy to rat fur ??
She develops first the allergy, then, a few months later the rheumatoid
arthritis. She doesn't have the DR4 allele commonly associated with this
disease, nor rheumatoid factor.
