Abstract

Anti-citrullinated protein antibodies are a distinctive feature of a subset of patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). A new report investigates how lung inflammation in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease affects protein citrullination, providing an additional piece of information on the potential link between airway inflammation and RA.
