Researchers at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine have found the first gene defects associated with rheumatoid arthritis, a common and debilitating disease affecting 1 percent of the world's population. Mutant p53 genes were found in synovial tissue taken from the joints of patients with severe, chronic rheumatoid arthritis (RA)who were undergoing joint replacement surgery.
