Objectives: In this study, we evaluated the serum levels of a serum TNF-related weak inducer of apoptosis (TWEAK) and anti-citrullinated protein antibody (ACPA) and investigated the possible correlation of these parameters with disease activity, cytokine levels and anti-TNF-alpha treatment in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA).
