Advances & More News / Reported from the UK: First-Degree Relatives Have High Perceived Risk for Rheumatoid Arthritis

First-degree relatives (FDRs) of patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) have a high perceived risk for developing RA, according to a study published online Dec. 5 in RMD Open. Sarah Bunnewell, from Sandwell and West Birmingham NHS Trust in the United Kingdom, and colleagues defined variables associated with perceived risk for developing RA in FDRs of patients with RA. Patients with RA and their FDRs were asked to complete cross-sectional surveys; 395 FDRs were included in the analysis. Paired data from 213 RA patients were available for 291 of these FDRs.
