Researchers said these blood proteins could prove to be much-needed biomarkers for this chronic disease. “These results indicate that [blood] proteins are attractive surrogate markers for tracking disease severity at the diseased organ level,” the researchers wrote. The findings were published in the journal Arthritis Research & Therapy, in a study titled “Multiomic…
