Higher mortality in postmenopausal women with RA and anti-CCP antibodies

Findings published in the American College of Rheumatology journal Arthritis & Rheumatism, soon to be called Arthritis & Rheumatology, indicate the higher mortality rates persisted after adjusting for age, positive rheumatoid factor, positive antinuclear antibodies and disease modifying anti-rheumatic drug use.
