Description: Immune cells are found in inflamed joints like rheumatoid arthritis. The hands are coming out of the shadows are trying to hold the inflammation down. Rheumatoid arthritis is a disease that is characterized by joint inflammation and has associated pain and stiffness. It primarily affects the small joints of the hands and feet. While the cause is unknown, there are good treatments that minimize the swelling and accompanying pain. If untreated people get significant joint damage and deformities. Thanks to great science over the last 20 years, this is rarely observed. These immune cells are attracted to the joints and secrete cytokines, substances known to enhance the inflammatory process. Known as an autoimmune disease, rheumatoid arthritis is the result of an immune system attacking its own tissues.
