Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Understanding the role of microenvironmental factors in the development of arthritis is essential. However, there is evidence that environmental factors can trigger inflammatory or autoimmune processes and we strongly emphasize that these pathomechanisms are very complex. All infectious agents, target tissues or cells, genetic markers or other exposures are needed to alter or modulate the immune system for developing arthritis. The relationship between the gut, joint manifestation and genetic factors remain unclear. Therefore, based on current research and future research results, we are required to focus on and reach the most relevant therapeutic option to restore and maintain homeostasis and the microenvironmental balance [16].
