Rheumatoid Arthritis Precision Panel
Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is a symmetric, inflammatory, peripheral polyarthritis of unknown aetiology that primarily involves synovial joints. The immune system targets the synovium (membrane which contains the synovial fluid) causing a painful inflammation around the affected zone which can be disabling in some cases. It typically leads to deformity through the stretching of tendons and ligaments and destruction of joints.

Juvenile arthritis is a heterogenous group of inflammatory arthritis of unknown etiology, all defined by the presence of at least one inflamed joint persisting more than six weeks. Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA) is the most common rheumatic disease in children, with an unpredictable clinical course and the impending risk of impaired joint function.
Systemic Lupus Erythematosus Precision Panel
Systemic Lupus Erythematosus is a chronic multisystemic autoimmune disease of unknown cause. The most prominent feature of this disease is the onset of immunologic abnormalities, especially the production of antinuclear antibodies.
