  1. Association between serum vitamin D levels and neuropathic pain (NP) in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients: A cross–sectional study. Although further research is needed to clarify the association between serum vitamin D levels and NP, our study raises awareness of the need to screen for vitamin D deficiency in RA patients with NP.

  9. Incidence of chronic persistent rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and the impact of smoking. The incidence of chronic persistent RA is lower than the figures reported in inception cohorts and smoking duration, but not intensity and doubled the risk of RA after 20 years of smoking in both sexes.
