From: Successful tumour necrosis factor (TNF) blocking therapy suppresses oxidative stress and hypoxia-induced mitochondrial mutagenesis in inflammatory arthritis

Mitochondrial point mutations r-value Pvalue
DAS28-CRP 0.83 0.01
CRP (mmg/L) 0.77 0.02
ESR (mm/hr) 0.73 0.04
  1. CRP, C-reactive protein; DAS28-CRP, 28-joint count disease activity score using C-reactive protein; ESR, erythrocyte sedimentation rate.
