Abstract and Introduction

Introduction

Inflammatory arthritis is a joint disease characterized by leukocyte invasion and synoviocyte activation followed by cartilage and bone destruction. There are multiple types of inflammatory arthritis including the most common, juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA), rheumatoid arthritis (RA), psoriatic arthritis (PsA) and ankylosing spondylitis (AS). Variable etiologies contribute to the pathogenesis of these diseases, and at large, remain poorly understood.
