Aims and scope

Arthritis Research & Therapy is an international, peer-reviewed online journal, publishing original research, reviews, commentaries and reports. The major focus of the journal is on cellular and molecular mechanisms of arthritis, musculoskeletal conditions and systemic autoimmune rheumatic diseases and translation of this knowledge into advances in clinical care. Original basic, translational laboratory and clinical research is considered for publication along with results of early and late phase therapeutic trials.

Review series: New technologies

Written by renowned experts in the field, this collection of open access Review articles explores the use of RNA sequencing, cytometry, metabolomics and next-generation DNA sequencing in rheumatic disease.

Featured review: Fibroblast-like synoviocyte metabolism in the pathogenesis of rheumatoid arthritis

New Content ItemIn this review, Bustamante and colleagues show how fibroblast-like synoviocytes in RA patients differ from healthy synovial fibroblasts, not only in their marker expression, proto-oncogene expression, or their epigenetic changes, but also in their intracellular metabolism.
"Whether this truly constitutes an option to increase the drug armamentarium in rheumatic diseases beyond biological and kinase inhibitor therapies remains to be determined."
