m-ficolin levels reflect disease activity and predict remission in early rheumatoid arthritis
To assess plasma M-ficolin concentrations in disease-modifying antirheumatic drug (DMARD)-naive patients with early rheumatoid arthritis (RA), to investigate the correlation of M-ficolin concentrations with disease activity markers, and to determine the predictive value of M-ficolin with respect to the Disease Activity Score in 28 joints (DAS28).
