This webinar outlined an ongoing project to develop personalized treatment strategies for rheumatoid arthritis patients using miRNA profiling.

Millions of patients with rheumatoid arthritis are treated with TNF-α inhibiting agents, but the response rate to these therapies is low (30 percent to 40 percent) and no tool exists to predict treatment response.

During the study being discussed, Dr. Eric Schordan, Head of the Molecular Diagnostic Department at Firalis and TcLand Expression, led a project that aimed to address this via miRNA profiling in RA patients.
